Sexual assault counseling for Austin, TX

If you are here, you have experienced either sexual abuse as a child or been sexually assaulted…or both. You may have tried to avoid dealing with it. Who wants to think about such an awful experience? You might have spent a long time pretending it didn’t matter or wasn’t as bad as you were making it out to be. Maybe this even worked for a while. But, you are starting to realize that the sexual trauma is creeping into all areas of your life.

You are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.

Sexual assault can cause all kinds of hidden and not so hidden problems. Some of these include…

  • hating your body

  • perfectionism

  • lack of friends
  • suicidal ideation
  • chronic pain / illness
  • concentration problems
  • never feeling safe
  • alcohol/drug problems

 

We could go on, but you get the idea. Sexual abuse can be extremely damaging to your body, your relationships, and your life as a whole. Fortunately, it does not have to be a life sentence. Good treatment helps you get control of your life again.

What should I expect from good sexual assault counseling?

All you need are 5 Steps…

  1. Treatment starts with a decision. Talking about your assault is such a scary thing, and reaching out is often the hardest part of treatment. So, we try to make each step of the way as smooth as possible. From the first phone call, to signing the paperwork, to understanding what your options are…we want the process to be easy, clear, and tailored to you.
  2. Once you’ve made the decision, we know it’s time for us to build trust. Our clinicians do what they say they will do. We start where you are and work together to build a treatment plan that walks you step by step towards the life you have always wanted. We know how far you can go even when you doubt it yourself.
  3. We then focus on figuring out what works for you. Our clinicians are at the top of their games. We are constantly learning new things about sexual assault counseling so that we can provide the best proven options to you. You decide which one fits best to start and then we lean in.
  4. Don’t worry, though. We move at your pace and troubleshoot along the way. We will check back often to make sure what we are doing is actually working and to problem-solve, if not. We do not want you to waste your time and money on something that is not working for you. This is why you’ve come to the specialists.
  5. You will know you are done when you feel whole. The sexual abuse or sexual assault is now just something bad that happened to you. It no longer feels like who you are. You feel excited about the future. Your confidence in yourself is strong. You have relationships that matter and support you. Whatever your best life is, you are now able to live it.

How Long Will It Take?

In the trauma world, we talk about simple trauma and complex trauma. Simple traumas are when basically one bad thing happened in the midst of a life that otherwise was full of the support and love you need to have a good start in life. Complex trauma happens when you got the short stick in life and lots of bad things have happened–difficult childhood, multiple traumas, physical issues, etc…

Simple traumas and even some complex traumas can be healed in 8-12 sessions. More complex trauma can take a while longer–even years sometimes. But when you find a good fit with counseling, you will typically start to feel better very quickly.

Once you get started, your therapist will have a better idea of how complicated your treatment might be.

 

What Will It Cost?

Counseling–especially good, complete counseling–is an investment in your future. As such, like anything, you get what you pay for. Our typical session rates are $125/hour. We do offer a discounted rate of $95/hour for our pre-licensed clinicians. And we help you through the process of filing Out of Network benefits, if applicable. This is when your insurance benefits allow you to see someone outside their network and give you a refund check.

For little more than the cost of a massage, you can change your life trajectory forever.

 

How Will I Know It’s Working?

When you feel supported, believed, and empowered, big and small things start happening in your life. Our clients often find themselves in great relationships, enjoying life, and feeling in charge of the direction of their lives.

 

Sexual trauma is a terrible thing to experience, but it does not have to dictate your future. If you are ready to take back control, find your counselor today with just a phone call.
