As a woman, you have the right to dignity, autonomy, and security. Unfortunately, many men who suffer from their own insecurities and misguided beliefs resort to abusing women to assert their dominance. Moreover, abuse is not limited to sexual or physical abuse. Verbal insults, such as constant yelling and badgering, constitute a subtle and powerful form of emotional abuse that can be far more damaging than physical or sexual abuse because it beats down a woman’s morale and self-confidence. I have helped women overcome their problems by providing one-to-one, compassionate, and nonjudgmental counseling as well as safety planning and service referrals. Below are just some of the issues I have dealt with that pertain to empowering women in a competitive world:
Sexual Abuse Treatment
If you have been a victim of sexual abuse and need help moving on and dealing with your feelings of betrayal and violation, then I can help by gently reprocessing and subsequently eliminating the trauma. Should you want to take legal steps for restitution, I at Pathways Counseling Service will also provide a supportive environment in which to explore the emotional repercussions of taking such steps.
