Are You Struggling With Sexual Abuse?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Sexual Abuse or Assault

Sexual abuse is the act of unwanted sexual contact. Sexual abuse can happen to anyone of any gender or age. Sexual abuse can also lead to various mental health disorders, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, suicidal thoughts, and personality disorders.

Recovering from a traumatic event such as sexual abuse can be difficult. Still, many counseling interventions are available, and therapists are ready to figure out what works best for each person.

Available Treatment Options

Counseling may involve processing the traumatic event or events, understanding emotions related to the abuse, and developing coping mechanisms that ease symptoms of mental health conditions related to the abuse.
