Sexual Abuse therapists in Sterling, Virginia VA
I look forward to continuing to work with individuals who have experienced sexual abuse. My hope is that as we collaborate, they begin to change the way they view their experiences, understand their ability to create the lives and connections they desire and come to realize how brave and powerful they have been in the past, are now and can be into the future!
16 Years Experience
Many of our therapists work with sexual abuse survivors. We feel that sexual abuse survivors need and deserve a safe and secure place to discuss their pain and survivor-hood. Dr. Sanness and Dr. Nelson specialize in trauma. Dr. Sanness also specialized in Complex Trauma (repeated trauma that has occurred over developmental time periods throughout the life-span).
21 Years Experience
Psychologist, PhD, LP
Much of my research and clinical work has been focused on childhood sexual abuse, military sexual trauma, and sexual assault. Together, we can help you overcome the trauma that you experienced and take back your life from trauma.
9 Years Experience
I often apply current, best-practice treatments for PTSD and depression to aid my clients in recovery from past sexual abuse experiences, both from child- and adulthood. These techniques help clients heal regardless of whether the abuse occurred briefly or over a prolonged period. I treat both men and women with histories of sexual abuse and assault and try to be especially attuned to the unique forms of stigma that are often perceived by clients.

Sexual abuse is much more common than most people realize. Processing and treating sexual abuse is an important part of recovery.
