Adult victims of childhood molest and adult victims of sexual abuse/assault often present for treatment with symptoms of anxiety, depression, alcohol/drug abuse, eating disorders and other related conditions, which may be ways they have learned to cope with their sexual trauma.
Since Dr. Peck has clinical expertise in treating all these clinical issues, she understands that sexual trauma may be underlying these symptoms, and can address both the trauma of the abuse as well as these ways individuals have learned to manage the pain of the trauma.
