Therapy to Heal From Sexual Assault, Trauma and Abuse

Counseling in Sacramento or Online Anywhere In California

Feel better in your life and relationships.

We help survivors of sexual assault & abuse heal from their past, so they can feel free again.

It wasn’t your fault. There is nothing wrong with you. You deserve love and respect.

Are you currently in crisis?  Or maybe you have been thinking about starting therapy for years?

If you are looking for support to heal from sexual assault, sexual trauma, rape or molest, finding the right therapist to help you heal can feel overwhelming.

Opening up to another person about sexual assault, rape or molest can feel really scary.  It’s so important that you feel safe, accepted, understood and supported in a healthy way that can help you heal.

 

You deserve to feel safe and free in your own body, during intimacy and in all areas of your life.

Hi, I’m Megan, therapist and founder of Love Heal Grow Counseling.

Our therapists have specialized training and extensive experience supporting people who are healing from sexual trauma.

We know you want to feel better and sometimes you don’t even know where to start.  We will take the time to get to know you and talk through the tough stuff at your own pace.  We will guide you through exercises when you are ready that can help you decrease your anxiety, panic attacks, nightmares, mood swings and feelings of fear.  And if it’s important to you, we will help you get to a place where you can feel better about yourself in current or future intimate relationships.

You don’t have to live in shame, fear and discomfort.

We help people who have experienced:

-Childhood sexual abuse, molestation and incest.
-Rape by a friend, date, or intimate partner.
-Sexual assault in places that should be safe such as the workplace, home or school settings.
-Sexual discrimination.

Our clients come to us with:

-Problems trusting themselves and others.
-Feelings of fear even when they think they should be feeling safe and calm.
-Chronic anxiety and panic attacks.
-Low self esteem.
-Sex and intimacy problems in relationships or avoidance of close relationships.
-Self doubt.

You can meet with your trauma therapist in Sacramento or online through virtual sessions from the comfort of your home.

When our clients start sex trauma therapy, they often share that:

 

-They aren’t sure where to start or what to expect. 

-Others may have encouraged them to start therapy, but they are worried that it will hurt too much, will be too overwhelming, or won’t be helpful.

-They have lost trust in others, and aren’t sure if they will be able to trust their therapist–they’ve been judged, misunderstood, even blamed by others and opening up is hard.

Our sex trauma therapists help our clients by:

 

-Going at your pace (and helping you learn to trust yourself to set the pace).   

-Using evidence-based techniques to help you experience less PTSD symptoms.

-Supporting you to feel empowered in your story.  Our brain can get stuck on certain parts of our experience; this can be overwhelming even though our brain is trying to help us.  We help our clients acknowledge the painful parts while also holding space for their strength, courage, and resiliency.

-Helping you learn to find kindness and compassion for yourself in this process.

-Supporting you as you find reconnection to your life, family, friends and potential intimate relationships in a way that helps you feel safe and secure (and only when you are ready to do so).

Through the process of sex trauma therapy, you may:

 

-Feel more connected to yourself and others.

-Notice you get through the day with less anxiety and panic.  You might start sleeping better, and noticing you have more moments of peace and joy in your life.  

-When you have felt defined by your trauma for a long time, you may begin to feel less stuck in the trauma and the past.  You may notice you have hope for the future for the first time in a long time.

-Start opening up to others and setting healthy boundaries in relationships.  You might notice you are starting to trust yourself more.

Counseling can help you feel free and happy again.
