Many ways: A person can call a rape crisis line even if the assault happened a long time ago. The counselor can help you find a therapist to talk to. The national sexual assault hotline is 1-800-656-hope or go to www.Rainn.Org and click on the hotline online. It is free and confidential. It's important to find a good therapist who you feel safe and comfortable with. It may not be the first one you see.
