Sexual abuse often takes away a persons sense of control and of self. You could be left feeling to blame for something that wasn't your fault. There is no "right way" to heal from abuse. Call today and we can work together to tailor a plan to best fit your needs. You didn't have a say in your abuse while it was happening, but I work to make sure you will have full control over if and how you work on it moving forward in sessions.
5 Years Experience
Psychologist, Psy. D., M.A.
When the foundation of trust shaken (if not feeling broken) through experiences of trauma, the approach to restoring one's life must always be one of sensitivity, patience, and compassion. Without this, there will always be a risk that it will never feel safe enough to heal.
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
Sexual abuse often creates very painful symptoms and is something for which I use a therapy called Prolonged Exposure (PE). In this therapy, we will revisit traumatic situations, process painful emotions, and change unhelpful beliefs about yourself and the world around you as a result of your trauma. People are often amazed at how quickly this treatment can work and by the very meaningful change that can result. For these reasons, this is one of my favorite treatments to provide.
