Specializes in Clinical Psychology

Sexual assault help: That is totally an understandable response, and goes along with the fact that you had a bad trauma. That kind of trauma will result in you avoiding sexual relations, and possibly people as well. The best way to handle this anxiety and repair the damage is to consult with a mental health professional who can help you get through the trauma, and teach you skills to manage anxiety and fear.
