In-Person and Online Group Therapy for Women in California
who are Survivors of Sexual Assault and Trauma

reclaim your life
from sexual trauma

A SAFE SPACE FOR SURVIVORS TO FEEL UNDERSTOOD, VALIDATED, AND SUPPORTED

Long after experiencing sexual trauma, you can still have strong feelings of grief, shame, guilt, fear, or a sense of isolation and disconnection from others. It may feel too daunting to begin building trust and emotional or physical intimacy in a relationship. Or you may struggle to recognize what a trusting relationship looks like. It may also feel too scary to open up to people around you because you're not sure they'll understand.

Howe K headshot_edited.jpg

My specialized focus on working with sexual assault survivors started in 2009. Since then, I've worked with survivors at all different stages of coping; from crisis support on the same day of an assault to decades after sexual abuse
 
I have an extensive background in trauma-informed mindfulness-based approaches and expressive arts techniques, which I often incorporate into group work. I take societal and systemic issues seriously when it comes to the role they play in your experience of trauma and shame, and I am passionately driven to empower you to overcome self-blame and rediscover your self-worth.

Guiding discussions and providing education aren't her only superpowers!
