Many individuals go through a process after experiencing trauma where they work through levels of help and support. It's important to understand that while many may skip to the final step for various reasons, many survivors see the effects of trauma and sexual harm for years. Even if someone initially thought what happened was unimportant or trivial, they may come to recognize that it had an impact on their individual self, their relationships, and other aspects of life.
There is an identified lack of trauma treatment resources available to survivors of sexual harm, especially at a sliding fee to make it accessible. Therapists that treat sexual trauma or abuse often do not have adequate training in sexual health. We fill that need for survivors of sexual trauma, dating trauma, and sexual exploitation. The Respark Foundation offers the perfect intersection of trauma-informed sex therapy and sex-positive trauma therapy. Our therapists are trained in how to treat trauma as well as sexual health and intimacy issues and are able to do so at a cost that is affordable to those who are in need. In order to completely address the impact of trauma on the whole person, adult survivors of sexual harm need providers well-versed in a variety of interventions so that their skills, day-to-day functioning, identity, and relationships may recover. We envision a world where all people are free from sexual harm.
We welcome clients from all sexualities, genders, races, and relationship structures.
