“The healing journey for all survivors of rape and sexual assault varies. The average time to heal is five years. It may take longer for survivors who have not addressed the effects of the attack and hold it within themselves. Because of the triggers that pop up throughout a survivors lifetime healing may be a life long journey. Many survivors lead successful lives in spite of it all. No matter where you are on your healing journey, we are here for you. You are not defined by what happened to you. We are here to help you move past the effects of sexual assaults into being the best you that you can. Be encouraged!”
