My husband, just told me he was sexually abused as a child.

Customer Question

My husband, just told me he was sexually abused as a child. This makes it clear to me why he has a lot of angry towards others and blows the least little thing out of proportion. I has agreed to seek help to talk with someone. What type of profession do we look for and do you have any recommendations in the Louisville KY area. Our zip code is 40223.

Hi. I am so glad to hear that he is open to talking with someone. He deserves that safe space to begin to do the healing work that is needed. Give me a moment while I look for some referrals for you.

Expert:  TherapistJen replied 4 months ago.

Here are two names for you to explore. They are Psychologists and I provided you with a male and a female since I don't know what his preference would be.
