Sexual Abuse Recovery

When a person is harmed sexually (often, though not always, by a loved one), the wounds are persistent. Our sexuality is integrated with our most core selves. Traumatic sexual experiences assault us by merging darkness with parts of our hearts that are meant to create powerful beauty.

Healing from abuse is more than just reducing the impact of memories. It involves separating beauty from the darkness that has intruded and making it possible to live fully once again.
