Counselor/Therapist, LPC-MHSP, FNP-C, Lifecoach
Sexual abuse is a form of abuse that is about power. I see it in victims of narcissistic abuse and coupled with other forms of physical, emotional, psychological, and financial abuse. In victims of sexual abuse, the abuse may be minimized or repressed, so CBT and DBT are used to validate and label the abuse for what it is, as well as treat underlying post traumatic stress disorder. PTSD is treated with trauma-informed CBT and DBT to identify toxic thought patterns as well as initiating a sense of safety within the body (inner child work). Trauma is always stored, to a degree, in the body. Journaling and active movement with mindfulness training and trauma processing are key elements of healing from sexual abuse. If you are suffering or have suffered from sexual abuse, please don't hesitate to reach out to me!

Sexual abuse at any age is traumatic. Working with trauma, using EMDR to process the traumatic experiences helps move towards healing of any abuse, including sexual abuse. If is it from childhood or more recent, healing is the only way to have a more productive life.
