The trauma of sexual abuse often causes an intense and long-lasting response for the person who has endured it. Our society’s relative discomfort with sexuality means that most responses to sexual abuse take on a dimension of difficulty that further complicates the trauma. Laurie Grengs is a sexual abuse counselor with 30 years of experience helping individuals work through their trauma so that they are able to live more freely. Laurie’s practice, The International Center for the Attainment of Love and Joy, is based in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, and offers empathy and insight that has helped people understand and recover from the trauma of sexual abuse.

Getting to the point of understanding that we need, it is vital to have the help of a trained and licensed counselor. We may fear that reaching out to a counselor will cause us to re-experience the trauma. And to some extent, we do re-experience the trauma. But when we do so in the presence of a sexual abuse counselor, we grow to understand that confronting the feelings associated with the abuse we went through is possible and healing can happen.
