Overcome Sexual Abuse & Childhood Sexualization

Childhood sexual abuse is one of the most violating and tragic experiences an individual can endure. Victims are often affected throughout their lives, both in ways they recognize and in unconscious feelings and behaviors that they don't. Healing the long-term effects of childhood sexual abuse has been a major focus of Asher Fox's private practice for the past 24 years.

Childhood sexual abuse often results in feelings of shame, guilt, worthlessness, and a lack of trust in others and ourselves. It can lead to sexual issues, relationship problems, and with victims believing that they don't deserve to be truly loved for who they are. Unfortunately, many victims repress or suppress these memories and are not consciously aware of the childhood abuse's negative impact on their current lives.

Most of our core beliefs about ourselves, specifically regarding our self-worth and value, as well as our sense of safety in relating to others, are formed during childhood. During this critical period, experiences can deeply imprint on our subconscious, either positively or negatively, leading to persistent painful emotions without appropriate intervention.

If you're ready to break free from the ways sexual trauma has been holding you back from fully experiencing life, contact Asher Fox, CCHt. His process will empower you to align your conscious and subconscious minds toward healing these painful wounds. You will quickly find yourself letting go of any internalized fear and reprocessing undeserved shame, which will allow you to see the truth. This, in turn, enables you to move forward, reclaim your power, and reshape your world in any way you choose.

Asher's Integrative approach helps directly target these symptoms of Trauma from Sexual Abuse and many others not listed here: 

  • Flashbacks and intrusive memories: Individuals may experience recurrent, distressing memories of the traumatic event, often feeling as though they are reliving the experience.
  • Avoidance: People may go to great lengths to avoid reminders of the traumatic event, including places, people, or activities that evoke memories of the abuse.
  • Hyperarousal: This can manifest as hypervigilance, difficulty sleeping, irritability, or a heightened startle response, as the individual remains on high alert for potential threats.
  • Difficulty regulating emotions: Survivors may struggle with intense emotions such as fear, anger, shame, or guilt, finding it challenging to manage these feelings effectively.
  • Negative changes in beliefs and attitudes: Trauma can lead to negative changes in self-perception, beliefs about trust, safety, and intimacy, as well as distorted views of the world.
  • Emotional numbness: Some individuals may experience a sense of emotional numbness, detachment, or feeling disconnected from themselves or others as a coping mechanism.
  • Physical symptoms: Trauma can manifest in physical symptoms such as headaches, gastrointestinal issues, chronic pain, or other unexplained physical ailments.
  • Dissociation: Survivors may experience dissociative symptoms, such as feeling detached from their body or experiencing gaps in memory surrounding the traumatic event.
  • Substance abuse: Some individuals may turn to alcohol, drugs, or other substances as a way to cope with the emotional pain and distress associated with the trauma.
  • Impact on relationships: Trauma from sexual abuse can affect interpersonal relationships, leading to difficulties with trust, intimacy, and forming healthy connections with others.

I was on the edge of throwing in the towel in February. I sought help from a therapist who only made my life more confusing. By May- in a last-ditch effort, I found Asher on a Google search. Within the first two sessions I had regained hope, and my life has shown steady improvement.

I credit Asher with re-positioning my life and showing me new and better ways of looking at everyday problems and how to deal with them more effectively. I whole-heartedly recommend Asher Fox to my friends and family.

If I were only allowed one word to describe Asher’s gifted ability to get to the root of a problem and facilitate positive change it would be: masterful. I’ve been familiar with Asher’s work for some time, and was very happy when he began offering virtual sessions. I began therapy a week ago with Asher because I wanted to lose weight for the last time. The weight was only a symptom of my real issue. I have lost 6 pounds. I had no idea what a prison I had made for myself. After two sessions it is GONE. As dramatic as when the lights are suddenly turned on in a totally dark room. I had been there for so long, I didn’t even realize it. Being anxious and afraid to socialize resulted in a driving need to eat. Off I would go, looking all around thinking I must to eat something; ANYTHING! With multiple approaches at his disposal, Asher covers a lot of ground in his sessions. I feel like I have his undivided attention when I am there because he does not just listen to what you say, he hears how you say it,...with your entire self. He will return with “So, would you say...” and somehow he can perfectly articulate what I just struggled to express out loud. There is no hiding. Now I know, reaching my weight loss goal will be the least of the benefits. The reframing of my life after only two sessions has been so powerful I can only look forward to the next one as I discover how my life will unfold next.

I came to see Asher with anxiety that had plagued me on and off for 20 years. He taught me that my anxiety wasn't just something random, but that it was deeply rooted in my childhood and most importantly, that it was something I could let go of. For the first time in many years, I feel like I'm in control of my life.

Asher's ability to counsel comes not only from his training and credentials, but even more importantly, I believe from his keen instinct about how the mind works. Words cannot express how grateful I am for the progress I have made under his care.
