Sexual Abuse therapists in Vaughan, Ontario ON, Canada CA
Registered Psychotherapist, HBEd, MA (Hons.), Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
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.

All of us go through the winding footpaths of life and at one point in time experience moments that create long lasting impacts and changes in ourselves, our environment, and in the trajectory of our lives. Sometimes those experience can be positive, and sometimes they are negative. These negative experiences are we we define as traumatic events. Sexual Abuse is absolutely considered traumatic. The experience of trauma and traumatic events can be painful and excruciating. Sometimes these experiences leave us at more than just at a loss, but can continue to cause us pain and fear. These experiences can alter the way your mind works. Creating physical and emotional responses to triggers that remind you of your trauma. Even when you are unaware of these triggers, you can be left feeling overactive and hyper-vigilant to certain moments and interactions. The post traumatic consequences (often known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD) of these triggers is that you can feel like you are on constant alert to prevent future danger and pain; even when there is none to be presently found. If left untreated it can lead to one feeling loss and overwhelmed and increase rates of risky or dangerous behaviours (i.e. increased aggression and violence, increased substance use, increased physical and mental distress). Our goal is help you heal. We offer a safe space and environment to begin the process of talking about your pain as a means to start processing what had happened to you. Talking about trauma doesn't always mean retelling your story. We work with each individual uniquely in order to find the path of healing that is more effective for them. We utilize a variety of techniques including a highly effective form of trauma therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help folks through this process in order to help you rediscover hope and empowerment. Understanding our past gives us an ability to take control what we want our future to look like. We believe that all people deserve to live a life free from fear and pain, all of us deserve a little help along the way. Our therapists can help you identify the roots of your struggles, offer a safe space for respite and together with you create a custom treatment plan to overcome them.

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 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.
