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.
Maybe you are currently in crisis. Or, maybe you have been thinking about starting therapy for years.
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. Achieving this in a healthy way can help you heal. Sexual trauma therapy in Sacramento, CA might just be the missing piece you need.
You deserve to feel safe and free in your own body. During intimacy and in all areas of your life. Sexual trauma therapy can aid you in this journey.
Our sexual trauma therapists are here to help. They have specialized training and extensive experience supporting people who are healing from sexual trauma.
Our sexual trauma therapists 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. These exercises can help you decrease your anxiety, panic attacks, and nightmares. In addition, these can help with mood swings and feelings of fear. 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.

-Childhood sexual abuse, molestation, and incest.
-Rape by a friend, date, or intimate partner.

If you are considering sexual trauma therapy, you may be…
–Unsure where to start or what to expect.
-Worried that it will hurt too much. That it will be too overwhelming. Or, won’t be helpful. Others may have encouraged you to start sexual trauma therapy. But, you aren’t quite sure.
-Have lost trust in others. And, aren’t sure if they will be able to trust their therapist. You may have been judged, misunderstood, or even blamed by others. And now, opening up is hard.
Our sexual trauma therapists can support you 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 sexual 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.
