A Place for Gentle Healing
Teresa Lauer, MA, LMHC
I'm a psychotherapist specializing in the treatment of trauma survivors, have written a number of books on trauma, and am a survivor myself. I empathize what you are experiencing emotionally, physically, spiritually, and sexually. Your relationship may be suffering and you may feel as if
your world has turned upside down, however, I can emphatically state that true healing is not only possible, but worth fighting for! Healing from any sexual trauma that humans inflict on one another is much like grief: It must be felt and experienced and worked through. There is simply no other way.
A mentor or guide to walk with you on this path such as one of the trauma professionals you'll find here, a family member or a treasured friend, can be helpful beyond belief. This is your life, no one else's, and you deserve peace, happiness, and a loving relationship. The time is now; you're not alone and I wish you the very best in your recovery!
If you are a professional interested in case consultation or supervision, please contact me directly.
