You Are Not Alone. We Can Help.
Letting go of mistaken beliefs from abuse to claim a new sense of self
Almost universally, the victims of childhood abuse live with the misguided belief that they did something wrong to cause the sexual abuse. They may feel that they do not deserve happiness or success. Competent and successful men and women, whose lives appear on track in every other way, exhibit inexplicable, self-defeating behaviors.
Through the process of therapy, survivors are able to let go of the mistaken beliefs of an abusive childhood and claim a true and authentic sense of self.
Ending the Generational cycle of pain
As individuals come to heal from the effects of abuse, they also become more able to create safety for themselves and for those in their care. Individuals, families and communities become safer and stronger as the effects of abuse decrease. By helping the survivor to become stronger, counseling may also help reveal an abuser within a family system and end the abuser's access to current family members.
Finding hope and fulfillment
Through an intense and gradual process with the trained therapists at Roanoke Park Counseling, the survivor's world view created as a child, including self-blame and shame, can be unraveled to reveal a new framework for understanding themselves, their strengths and their abilities for hope and fulfillment in their lives. Survivors are able to begin to create stability for themselves that in turn allows new possibilities of trusting, respectful, and healthy relationships with others.
