Sexual Trauma Recovery

Is past trauma holding you back from experiencing joy and pleasure? Do you feel disconnected from your body and overwhelmed at the thought of being sexual again? Our trauma-informed sex therapists are here to help you heal your mind and reconnect to your body.

We Understand

Do you struggle to feel pleasure in your body? Does sex feel overwhelming and scary? It’s possible the sexual and emotional trauma are impacting your ability to connect with your sexuality today. Whether the trauma happened thirty years ago or last week, we understand that painful memories live in your body and prevent you from engaging with pleasure and sensuality in the present moment.

It’s Complicated

You want to avoid any activities that feel overwhelming or threaten to remind you of your traumatic experience. You want to escape the pain of your trauma, but you also want to enjoy your life now. You want to heal, but you don’t want to talk about it. You’re stuck in a bind that feels impossible to escape. We know how overwhelming this feels, but we also believe you have the capacity to heal.

How We Help

Our trauma-informed therapists know how to guide you through the sexual healing process safely and compassionately.

We will not dive straight into conversations about sex. We believe that sexual healing begins with rediscovering how to connect to your body’s innate capacity to feel joy and non-sexual pleasure. We will communicate openly about our thoughts and ideas, allowing you to choose our discussion topics and homework assignments. We have the map and toolkit, but will defer to you each step of the way to ensure you feel in control of the therapeutic process. We are ready to help you to regain control of your mind and body so that you can experience the joy of pleasure and intimacy.

Before Therapy

After Therapy

shape-1

I feel completely disconnected from my body. I don’t know if I can ever be sexual again.

I feel non-sexual pleasure in my body every single day — and sexual pleasure whenever I feel like it! I feel my body is my own, and I am in complete control of my experiences

shape-2

I don’t know how to tell my partner that I don’t want to have sex, so I just turn off my mind and go through the motions. This is starting to have a negative impact on our relationship.

I have developed a strong sexual voice and can communicate my needs and boundaries clearly. My partner and I are creating a sexual relationship that feels good to both of us.

shape-3

I really want to have a healthy sexual relationship with my partner, but I get very overwhelmed and panicky whenever we start to touch in any sexual way.

I understand my triggers and know how to take care of myself when I start feeling panicky. I’m discovering new, positive ways to connect with my partner sexually and no longer feel afraid.
