Message to clients

As a mid-career professional, sexual trauma is the last thing you want to talk about.

You wake up and take care of yourself. You go to work, clean your home, take care of your family, go to the gym. You’re doing more than surviving-by many definitions, you are thriving!

However, most people don’t know your story.

Although the trauma occurred many years ago, you still have moments of heightened stress and anxiety. Triggers cause you to remember the manipulation and shame. Sometimes helplessness creeps in like an all-too-familiar, uninvited frien-emy.

You’ve worked hard to keep everything manageable. You’ve done everything in your power to forget the trauma, and move forward in life. At this point you’ve said, “I don’t want to have these same issues next year. Something’s gotta give.”

A part of you feels grateful for your life, but another part wonders, "How would life be different if (fill in the blank) never happened to me?" You’re ready to let go of the shame. You’re ready to transform your trauma into a tool for meaningful change. You’re ready to renew your life.

You need a therapist who will understand your unique innerworkings and provide a safe space to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviors without shame or judgment. Together, we can bring healing to the most difficult situations you’ve faced.
