Abuse / Assault
Psychotherapy for adults suffering from sexual assault is tailored to reduce symptoms of psychological distress, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and rape trauma. Approaches include individual counseling, planning of a treatment plan, and/or training regimens. Most treatment is on an individual basis which might include cognitive behavioral therapy or experiential therapy. The goals of psychotherapy for victims of sexual assault include reducing & preventing anxiety, depression, and PTSD, as well as, improving self-esteem and social adjustment.
Most cases of sex addiction can occur alongside other mental health issues. Other mental health issues can include but are not limited to the following:
- Compulsive Behaviors
- Substance Abuse
These other mental health issues can make sex addiction more severe. In some cases, individuals might be using sexual activities to help them cope with emotional distress or past trauma. Therefor, sexual addiction therapy will provide treatment for all diagnoses of the individual rather than just focusing on the sexual aspect.
Men’s issues can be developed over a period of time in different contexts such as where and how the individual matured. Therapists will focus on common men’s issues including anger/irritability, intimacy & affection, non-medically explained sexual issues, and the pushing away of emotions. The therapist will focus on the issues presented and will assist in creating a more effective way of being.
Pregnancy and childbirth might lead to a severe form of clinical depression known as postpartum depression. Individuals whom believe might be experience postpartum depression can look for symptoms including anger, anxiety, loss of interest or pleasure in activities, mood swings, or panic attacks. You may also notice changes to your behavior including crying, irritability, or restlessness. As with other cases of depression, doctors might refer individuals for counseling as a type of therapy. If you think you may be suffering from postpartum depression one of our therapists can specialize a treatment plan tailored to your specific situation to help you feel the happiness you desire.
Women’s issues can have serious emotional and physical effects beyond what is considered normal.
