Sexual Abuse

Peter Stathakos

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Registered Social Worker, BBA, MDiv, MSW, CMAT, CSAT
Being assaulted, raped or being an incest-survivor is a hurt that you did not ask for or ever deserve. What is even worse is the reaction that others have, if you even tell them, because you can feel broken in response to the abusers power, manipulation and lingering silent control. I have worked with many incest survivors and trafficked humans and children to heal from experiences of the unimaginable. I know it can be scary but I am a professional that you can handle hearing and helping you through your experiences. Reach out today to book an introductory call and get the care that you deserve.

Sexual abuse treatment for survivors and Sex offender treatment is different than other types of therapy for adults. Treatment for people who have sexually abused a child is a serious and encouraging process. Typically, it focuses on learning specialized strategies for stopping abusive behavior, being accountable, and taking responsibility for harm done. For persons who experience sexual abuse treatment is based on a compassionate, trauma, and emotionally focused lens. I often use DBT in these cases as well.

Sexual abuse comes in various forms, but they all have one consequence, a disconnection to the self, and a mistrust and disconnection from others. After all, you’ve been invaded by someone else at one point in your life. But it doesn’t mean that your body and personal space is lost. It means that we need to come on full force to protect it and nurture it so it understands that now it’s safe, and to rid it of the energy/energies of those who once preoccupied it by unpacking the trauma.

Sexual assault and abuse can result in severe physical and emotional trauma to you. Sexual abuse includes any type of sexual activity that takes place without consent. Rape, unwanted sexual touching, groping, and forced oral sex are some forms of sexual abuse. Sexual violence and sexual assault are other terms for sexual abuse. You might be feeling overwhelmed or ashamed, and it may be difficult to know where to turn. I have a very strong clinical interest in helping you feel safe within your mind and body in our sessions. I will help you walk towards your story, where you can hold it with confidence and shuck shame and guilt out!

Even after the trauma is over, it is common to still feel on edge, to question our part in the incident, and to feel as if we are reliving it over and over again. My training in trauma-informed therapy can help you to feel safe again, process the traumatic memories, and make meaning of the trauma in your life.

Sexual Abuse

Transforming Emotions

Psychologist
Sadly, sexual abuse still too often hides in the shadows. Individuals of all genders and sexual orientations often feel compelled to hide their pain from places of shame, self-blame, or fear. Too often, survivors of sexual abuse have not been believed, or have been silenced for others' comfort or in the service of preserving the status quo. At Transforming Emotions, our trauma-informed therapists are ready to help support you through the painful work of healing and recovery at a pace that works for you. We start with a focus on personal safety and building trust with your therapist. Next steps include reducing feelings of shame and and fear, and proceeding to process any memories that haunt you while understanding that those truly responsible for sexual abuse are those who perpetrate it. We end with helping you integrate a new, calmer, more confident and grounded sense of self, helping you live more truly in the present rather than being tethered to the past. Reach out today to help us better understand your unique needs. We will share our recommendations for therapists who may be the best match for you, and we will provide access to a free 20 minute consultation with team members you may be interested in working with allowing you to tell us which team member feels like the right fit for you. Contact us today to take your next step towards healing.

Grounded Minds Therapy

Registered Social Worker, MSW, RSW
You can heal from abuse, trauma and PTSD. You are important, and what you've experienced is important. Trauma can affect our lives in so many different ways.

You may feel like you're completely alone and that no one understands what you've experienced. You might miss the "old you" or want things to go back to the way they were before- this is completely natural. If you're struggling to manage symptoms of trauma or PTSD, the therapists at Grounded Minds are here for you. We can help you process your experiences, learn coping tools to manage your symptoms and free yourself from the heaviness weighing you down. If you're ready to take the first step, please reach out to schedule a therapy session or free consultation call.

Sexual Abuse

New Moon Psychotherapy

Registered Psychotherapist, MA, MACP, MSW, RSW, RP, RP(Q)
One of the greatest challenges in healing from sexual abuse is opening up about it to others. Many survivors feel ashamed of what happened to them and feel that there is something they could have done to stop it. Others start to question if it even happened or if it was just some big misunderstanding. We know that's not how this works. What happened was done to you, the way you responded was the only option. You did exactly what you needed to do. Sexual trauma can make us feel like we're broken - like there's something wrong with us or like we're permanently damaged. These thoughts are symptoms, not facts. We can help you see things differently - this part of your story does not define you. Imagine a life in which you don't have to keep trying to please others, to struggle silently while trying to keep it all together on the outside, to feel like you can't trust or that you're out of control and to put others' needs consistently above your own. Our goal is to help you regain power and control in your life and to release some of the heaviness that you've been carrying. We want you to begin seeing the world as a space in which trust and safety are not foreign concepts. A world in which you don't have to hide from your past or distract yourself to get through the day. Helping people overcome their traumas is the work that makes us get out of bed in the mornings. We specialize in trauma related to sexual abuse including childhood sexual abuse, incest, rape, sexual assault, human trafficking, and sexual harassment both within and outside the workplace. Please reach out - even if you don't quite believe things can get better - so that we can talk about how we might be able to help. We offer 1:1, couples, family and group therapy focused specifically on healing from sexual abuse and will connect you with a therapist who specializes in the therapy that would be the best fit for how your symptoms of sexual abuse are manifesting. Evidence-based therapies for sexual trauma used at New Moon Psychotherapy include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy for PTSD (DBT-PTSD), Sensimotor Psychotherapy, Somatic Psychotherapy. * * * If you decide not to go with our clinic, please ensure that your therapist is trained in EVIDENCE-BASED Psychotherapies for trauma - this will be the difference between months and years of therapy * * *
