Sexual Assault and Healing


We firmly believe you are not alone! In this group, we define sexual trauma as a past experience in which you were violated. Such violation has caused affected your relationships or any other key part of your day-to-day life. This group allows for a sense of community eliminating the feeling of being isolated and alone, and while making room for your voice. This group is designed to give you a safe space to work through the steps of trauma healing: coming to terms with what happened and externalize the event from your own self-worth.

Group Therapist

Theronda Myers, is a licensed clinical social worker. Theronda received a Master of Social Work degree from Boston University (MSW). Theronda has extensive experience treating anxiety and depression, sexual assault, and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. Theronda has worked in various settings, including community mental health, school social work, nursing homes, children and family agencies, community mental health advocacy organizations, and community mental health settings. She has over thirteen years of experience as an Emergency Crisis Counselor. Theronda has discovered through her work and personal experience that women are twice as likely as men to experience posttraumatic symptoms and to experience them for longer. According to Theronda's research, mental health stigma prevents women from seeking help, making them more likely to experience stress, which is a strong predictor of mental illness. In 2017, Theronda founded Abide Intergrative Services, inviting women and men of all ages to work together to combat mental health stigma and trauma.

Abide understands our clients come to us with a variety of experiences, skills, and strengths, and we work with you to cultivate your innate resources and develop new skills to help you find sustainable solutions for the issues you are facing. We believe that therapy should be a comfortable collaboration between the therapist and client to best serve client’s wellness needs of mind, body, and spirit.

At Abide we believe, you are not alone in this journey and that we can overcome stigma, shame, and trauma barriers by working together. Although our clients' circumstances have impacted their lives, Abide hopes they do not define or limit them. With this in mind, Abide works hard to help her clients thrive.
