Hi, I'd like to help you with your question.

 

To clarify what you are asking, do you want to know what kind of professional to see or are you asking what to do about being molested?

You should see a Master's level therapist or a Ph.D. A Master's level therapist is someone who has earned a Master's degree and usually special licenses along with it. The initials after their name usually include, M.Ed, MA, MSW, LSW or MFT (marriage and family therapist). A Ph.D is someone who has a doctorate in psychology. They have Dr. in front of their name or Ph.D after it.

 

To find a therapist, ask your doctor for a referral. Or you can search on line according to your zip code at http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/rms/. You can also contact the United Way in your area to ask about the local community mental health center for low cost/no cost therapy.

 

When you search for a therapist, you may want to ask about experience and whether or not the therapist has special education in helping others who have been sexually abused.

 

If you need further resources or have more questions, please let me know.
