My private therapist is not a "specialist" in CSA. I started with him about 12 years ago and he has been perfect for me in dealing with the issues as they unfold. He has been very supportive in my reaching out to other survivors as well as joining Richard's survivor group therapy. Degrees and certifications do not make a good therpist. I believe that it is first a talent and then the training which allows them to help people heal.

Good luck in your search!
