Counseling for Childhood Sexual Trauma
Are you depressed, anxious, unsure? Do you find old memories creeping into your daily thoughts? Have you been “dealing” with past sexual trauma and can’t “deal” anymore? If this sounds like you, we are ready to walk with you in the next steps of your healing journey.
Current statistics on childhood sexual abuse report that 1in 5 girls and 1 in 20 boys are sexually abused each year. 1 in 3 children are the victims of sexual abuse. This is a largely underreported population so the statistics are undoubtedly low. The long-term impacts of childhood sexual trauma can range from minimal to debilitating.
