Why ‘sexuality, attachment and trauma’?

At the Sexuality, Attachment and Trauma (SAT) Project, it is our perspective that most difficulties in sexuality stem from early childhood experiences. Current research shows that in order for a child to develop in healthy ways, the child must develop strong attachment bonds to loving caregivers in its environment. The child needs the stability and empathy of a consistent, loving caretaker in order to form healthy attachment patterns that will enable the child to develop into a healthy adult, who is also capable of forming stable and healthy attachment bonds in adult relationships.  Many difficulties that individuals experience in their...

What is the cost of treatment?

The Sexuality, Attachment and Trauma (SAT) Project provides a sliding scale to enable individuals from all types of personal situations to benefit from therapy.
