Danny I'm sorry your girlfriend was raped. I too am a survivor of a brutal rape.

I did the same thing with my new boyfriend. I'd cry yell and scream at him. What you need to do is be there for her.

she needs you now more than ever. Always assure and reassure her that you'll never hurt her.

If you get intimate tell what you're going to do before you do it.

Stay with her through those dark times trust me you'll be glad you did.

Danny please always love and care for her. I really hope she gets better.

Hi. It is my desire to help rape survivors find answers to those longing questions that haunt every victim of rape. Why did this happen to me? How can I survive this experience? Who really cares? Being a victim of rape often leaves one feeling alone, angry and full of fear. Please know that there are people that care. I care. My heart goes out to anyone that is having to deal with the shame and fear that is part of rape. Just remember, you are not alone. I am here to answer questions, seek solutions, or just be a listening ear. I am here to offer friendship and hope in the midst of a very lonely place.

Experience

I am a survivor. I was sexually abused as a child and also as an adult. I was sexually abused by both men and women, which left me very confused. I went into counseling 6 years ago with no hope. I was confused about my sexual orientation, struggled with sexual addictions, and self mutilation. Six years later I consider myself a conqueror. I am now happily married and have found hope. My husband and I have a ministry that deals with sexual abuse, same-sex attraction, and sexual addiction. We currently offer one on one counseling and group therapy for these issues. We are also in search of a Safe House for our ministry. This Safe House would be place where individuals seeking freedom from these situations could go and receive safety and counseling.

Education/Credentials
I am currently in school to finish up my degree in psychology. I work along side my husband who is an LPC Supervisor. Together we provide counseling and group therapy. I am currently deciding which direction to go with my education. Life experience has been my greatest education and I believe anyone can take these experiences and learn more than any college or university can teach.
