Counseling / Coaching for Sexual Trauma & PTSD

Trauma describes a whole lot of profoundly negative experiences, major and minor. Sexual or otherwise, trauma is everywhere—around us and through us, in different degrees and with varying impacts. Understanding how trauma works in the mind and body can open up a lot of insight and empathy about your own and others’ behavior.


Re-empowering yourself after acute or long-term trauma may seem daunting—but we can teach you proven techniques & strategies for managing how you feel and regaining a sense of self and wholeness.

Treating Sexual Trauma & PTSD

Trauma is complicated! All of us at RISE have been there—we know what it's like, how trauma touches every corner of your life.

We also know from experience that you can rise above horrific trauma—and create a life you love. Here we offer trauma counseling & coaching. How does that compare to trauma therapy?

Therapy is a rigorously structured and regulated model based on untangling the past to understand and process a diagnosis. Often tied to your insurance history.

Coaching describes a solution-driven process of retraining yourself how to react to the world in ways you want to—guided by your private trauma counselor.
