Sexual Abuse Therapy

Sexual abuse - or sexual violence - involves sexual acts or indications of such, directed at a non-consenting person. It's often complex and hard to deal with, especially when it involves someone you know.

Sometimes, it takes the form of verbal harassment or inappropriate inclusion of the victim in the abuser's sexual enactment. Not addressing it can lead to serious mental health issues, but therapy can help.
