I specialize in the treatment of childhood sexual abuse and sexual trauma.

These are just some of the characteristics that survivors of sexual abuse often feel.  For many years I have helped people who are struggling with their life issues.  By giving them the necessary support in the safety of the therapeutic relationship, I help them get past their self-limiting beliefs, so that they can enjoy the life they so richly deserve.

I have a great deal of experience working with the LGBT population and understand the unique challenges that they face, and have helped them live happy and rewarding lives.

I offer a free 30 minute consultation either by phone or in person at my office.  During this time you will get a good idea if I am a good match for you.

 

Are you or have you been abused?

 

Physical Abuse: Physical maltreatment, injury, or damage to a person.
 

Sexual Abuse: Contacts and interactions between a child under the age of 18 and an adult in which the child is being used for the sexual stimulation of the perpetrator or another person, or coercive, non-consenting sexual acts between adults, especially when one is in a position to have power over the other, such as minister - church member, teacher - student, therapist - client, or employer - employee. Sexual contact between an older child and an younger child can also be abusive if there is a significant disparity in age, development or size.

 

Sexual Harassment: Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.

 

Psychological Abuse: is also referred to as emotional or mental abuse. It is a form of abuse which is characterized by subjecting or exposing a person to words or behaviors that result in psychological trauma. Such abuse is often associated with situations of power imbalance, i.e., bullying, abuse in the work place.

 

Domestic Violence: can be both physical and verbal abuse. Domestic violence and emotional abuse are behaviors used by one person in a relationship in order to control the other. Partners maybe married or not married, heterosexual, gay or lesbian, living together, separated or dating.
