“What is our role in supporting victims of sexual abuse? We often feel nothing we say can fix the damage done to their body, soul, and spirit. The good news is the church has a unique opportunity to assess and support victims as they navigate their healing path.”

Need counseling support?

Trish Propson is a certified Biblical counselor with a master’s degree in pastoral counseling who takes a faith-based approach to crisis response counseling. Her counseling approach provides mental, emotional, and spiritual support for individuals and family members who find themselves impacted by trauma, especially sexual abuse and exploitation.

A crisis can trigger a traumatic response in all people impacted by the event before during and years after the initial trauma takes place. People who have experienced recent trauma from a crime such as sexual abuse, domestic violence, or other accidental trauma situations, or people who have had recurring trauma in their past that is affecting their lives now can benefit from Biblical counseling.

Critical trauma requires a professional trauma-informed care response. A Biblical counselor can provide a person emotional support and care as they process through the aftermath of a traumatic event in alignment with their faith. People struggling with trauma recovery, sexual abuse issues, suicidal thoughts, domestic violence, addictions, and grief can benefit from faith-based counseling that focuses on healing the whole person. Biblical counseling can help victims move from a state of acute trauma into phases of healing while offering hope for the future.

Trish would be the first to tell you that her faith is the only reason she is alive today. Although she doesn’t push her Christian faith on anyone, she believes that true and complete healing of mind, body, and spirit can only come from God. Group and individual counseling with Trish are available immediately following traumatic events especially for victims of sexual abuse and exploitation. Short-term counseling is available in the crisis phase or can be accessed to provide hope and healing long term. Individual and group counseling is available to best serve the needs of sexual abuse and exploitation survivors.

Fees are based on a sliding fee scale according to ability to pay. If you have immediate counseling needs or are interested in a growth group for recovery from sexual abuse and exploitation, contact Trish: Trish@brokenorbeautiful.org

“Thank you. I have been seeing the same counselor for three years. You uncovered in six sessions what I was never able to trust her with.”
