Dealing with my Feelings

Following a sexual assault, your feelings and emotions may seem all over the place. Sometimes feelings (like shame, anger, fear isolation, etc.) happen immediately, sometimes they come much later. Other times, there may be numbness and dissociation. Remember that there is no right way to feel or react after a sexual assault. The body's reaction to trauma is diverse—and all reactions are valid, normal ways to respond. What happened was not your fault and your body reacted and continues reacting in the best way it knows how. If you need help tackling an emotion that is affecting you right now or you are considering more long term exploration of these feelings, we can help.
