Sexual Assault (Past & Present)

Children  |  Teenagers  |  Adults

How we can help

I provide a comprehensive and supportive approach to addressing the challenges associated with sexual assault, whether they occurred in the past or are ongoing. Here's how the program can offer assistance:

Safe and Confidential Environment: The program prioritizes creating a safe and confidential space where individuals can share their experiences without judgment. This is crucial for survivors to feel secure in discussing sensitive and traumatic events.

Trauma-Informed Therapy: The therapy provided is grounded in trauma-informed principles, acknowledging the impact of sexual assault on mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Therapists are trained to navigate the complexities of trauma and provide specialized care.

Specialized Techniques: I will utilize evidence-based therapeutic techniques specifically tailored for survivors of sexual assault. This could include trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, or other modalities that have proven effective in addressing trauma.

Emotional Support: Survivors often grapple with a range of intense emotions. I can offer emotional support, helping individuals process and navigate feelings of fear, shame, guilt, and anger that may be associated with the experience.

Empowerment and Self-Efficacy: Sexual assault can leave survivors feeling disempowered. The program emphasizes empowering survivors to regain a sense of control over their lives, fostering self-efficacy, and supporting them in making choices that promote their well-being.

Crisis Intervention: For those experiencing ongoing or recent sexual assault, the program may provide crisis intervention services, ensuring immediate support and guidance during critical moments.

Coping Strategies: Therapists within the program can work collaboratively with survivors to develop healthy coping mechanisms. Learning effective coping strategies is essential for managing triggers, anxiety, and other challenges that may arise.

Psychoeducation: I offer psychoeducation about the effects of sexual assault, trauma responses, and the process of healing. This information can empower survivors with knowledge about their experiences and the potential paths to recovery.

Individualized Treatment Plans: Recognizing the uniqueness of each survivor's experience, the program likely tailors treatment plans to address specific needs, triggers, and goals for healing.

Community and Peer Support: Connection with a supportive community or other survivors can be a valuable aspect of healing. The program may facilitate group therapy or support networks where individuals can share their journeys and find understanding and encouragement.

Long-Term Support: Recovery from sexual assault is often a gradual process. I offer ongoing support to ensure survivors have access to resources and therapeutic assistance as they navigate their healing journey.

Trauma Psychotherapy

Trauma faced during your childhood can have long lasting impacts. Whether you experienced psychological abuse, emotional abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse, neglect, sexual assault (historical and present), domestic violence, witnessed a catastrophic event (i.e. a violent accident). The individual often manifests symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), or in some circumstances where trauma is long standing and chronic, Complex-PTSD. Survivors of trauma need a safe holding environment whereby they can feel psychologically safe to explore their trauma and release it. As a trauma-informed-therapist my goal is to utilize interventions which address how trauma is “held” in the body using Trauma-Informed-Psychotherapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Inner family systems therapy, and elements of Somatic Experiencing.
