Have you heard the saying “You’ll never feel 100% ready, do it anyway?” There’s something to be said about that when it comes to working through sexual trauma.
It’s important for you to do it in your own time. But, diving in and working through the pain you may feel can be very beneficial in helping you move forward. The sex and trauma therapists on our team take therapy at the speed and pace that you need.
Most people don’t actually want to work on their trauma. It’s scary, we don’t want our lives to get worse, and we don’t want to think about what happened.
For some, it does get worse before it gets better. That’s because we have to sit in front of our trauma and look at it, feel it and then walk through it. But, we’ve seen so many clients do this and get to a place where they don’t feel distressed when they think about their sexual trauma.
When we avoid working on it we often can get stuck it its hold and become controlled by the symptoms that it presents, like anxiety, depression, PTSD, nightmares, sexual challenges with ourselves or with our partner.We’re here to help walk you through that process.
