Sexual Abuse

Recent statistics reveal that 81% of women and 43% of men reported experiencing some form of sexual harassment or assault in their lifetime.

1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men report childhood sexual abuse. 60% of child sexual abuse victims never tell anyone. The effects of this form of abuse are chronic and long lasting. Oftentimes the shame that the victim feels prevents them from seeking help. Sometimes victims “forget” or “repress” the memories of abuse until later in life when the memories are triggered. Thankfully there is help available for this horrible form of abuse. EMDR helps to heal the memories as you reprocess them and integrate the events into your life while regaining your feelings of self worth, empowerment, and lovability
