Sexual Abuse

Dr. Ingrid Solano

Psychologist, PhD
Making sense of trauma, and the impact of trauma, can be accompanied by the fear that you will never be able to overcome the distress you feel when you remember the experience or when those intrusive nightmares, flashbacks, and negative thoughts come crashing into your awareness. Through trauma-focused therapy we reclaim confidence, hopefulness, intimacy, safety, self-esteem, and trust. I have specific expertise in treating trauma symptoms related to sexual assault, intimate partner violence and emotional abuse, military sexual trauma (MST), childhood and complex sexual trauma, violence, and combat trauma experienced by Veterans. These experiences can impact physical health, and daily life. Many people will experience a form of trauma in their lives. Trauma can come with feelings of shame, anger, and confusion. Posttraumatic stress is a normal human reaction to traumatic events. However, for some individuals this stress persists and interferes with their ability to live the life that they want. I work with complex cases that sometimes include dissociation, numbness, anger, risky behaviors, and years of avoidance. The treatments I provide are the most powerful and effective treatments available for these conditions. I have expertise in individual, as well as relationship (i.e., with a partner) based trauma-focused therapies. I have experienced many times how these treatments help people gain new perspectives about what happened to them, develop a sense of empowerment over their trauma, and improve their lives. These treatments can also be helpful if you feel stuck following experiences of trauma, even if you don’t have PTSD. If you’re unsure whether you want to discuss your trauma, or unsure which approach feels like a good fit for you, we can discuss your concerns. We will explore trauma-focused care that builds upon your current support, coping skills, and personal experience. I primarily employ time-limited, evidence-based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies (CBT) such as CPT, PE, and CBCT. (See Individual and Couples Therapy based Trauma-Focused Services.) In psychological literature, stressors are defined as events and conditions (e.g., losing a job, death of an intimate partner) that cause change and require that the individual adapt to the new situation or life circumstance. Stress processes can include the experience of prejudice events, expectations of rejection, hiding and concealing your authentic self, internalized homophobia, intimate partner violence, discrimination, and ameliorative coping processes that have become bad, ineffective habits. These experiences can be particularly painful when there is social pressure to conceal your experiences, or stigma. I address what it’s like to have no one to talk to about these experiences, and any distress that comes from having nowhere to do this work safely. I practice LGBTQIA+ affirming therapy that considers the impact of minority stress and chronic stress responses. Aside from these stress processes, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and heterosexuals who report any same-sex sexual partners over their lifetime, have greater risk of childhood maltreatment, interpersonal violence, trauma to a close friend or relative, and unexpected death of someone close.

Sexual Abuse

Raquel Molina

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
I have over 10 years experience working with sexual abuse survivors. I am trained in different treatment modalities specific to working with a person who has a history of sexual abuse. Working with sexual abuse survivors is a delicate process and it is important to find a therapist who has an understanding of working with individuals to avoid retraumatization.

Sexual Abuse

Examples of scenarios that survivors might experience, which inspire them to seek help from others to heal, include: Uncommon reactions to situations Continued struggles with feelings and emotions Sexual dysfunction New experiences trigger past traumas Survivors of sexual abuse have found that recognizing their trauma, speaking about it with others, and seeking justice are essential parts of healing. Those who engage with the healing process can move past their trauma and live healthy lives and eliminate some or all of the struggles they have experienced when coping with their trauma on their own.

Sexual Abuse

Erika Shershun

Marriage and Family Therapist, MA, LMFT
I'm passionate about helping survivors of sexual abuse to heal. I don't want others to spend years and years as I did, trying to get the support they need. For this reason, my work focusses on eliminating your symptoms and getting you the results you want. Some therapist say we never heal, that is not my experience. I'm the author of the Healing Sexual Trauma Workbook (available in four languages), and the Healing Sexual Trauma Guided Journal will be released in fall 2024. My Sexual Trauma Clinical Training course for therapists is available through PESI, and the Healing Sexual Trauma Course for survivors will be available sometime in 2024 at HealingSexualTrauma.com

Sexual Abuse

Stephanie Brumfield

Therapist, MSW, ASW, PPSC
Healing from the profound impact of sexual abuse is a journey of reclaiming one's soul and wholeness. In my practice, I offer a sanctuary for individuals grappling with the deep scars left by such experiences, focusing on the process of soul retrieval and the reclamation of lost parts of the self. This work is about more than healing physical wounds; it's about addressing the deep soul loss that occurs in the wake of sexual abuse. Together, we embark on a path of recovery, utilizing a compassionate, trauma-informed approach that honors your pace and the depth of your experiences. Through targeted therapeutic strategies, we will explore avenues for healing, empowerment, and the reintegration of your true self, aiming to restore a sense of safety, dignity, and personal power. My commitment is to support you in this deeply personal journey towards reclaiming your wholeness and rediscovering a life defined not by trauma, but by resilience and renewal.

Sexual Abuse

Sarah Farnsworth

Pre-Licensed Professional, MFA, RPS
You bear the scar of an intensely personal nature. Sexual trauma is a serious and underserved issue within our communities, in part due to external stigma but also due to the internal havoc it causes, breaking down trust and defying explanation. It is, for many reasons, difficult to talk about. Psychoanalysis can help. I offer a space where we can safely explore these experiences and their aftermath, and begin to find or redefine your relationship with yourself.
