Options for Women is much more than just a pregnancy clinic. While our main goal is to help women continue healthy pregnancies, we want to help women in all aspects of their lives. We know that many women may have hurt and anger from previous sexual relationships, and want to help our patients heal and move forward to live healthy, happy lives.
In 2014, we began offering a program titles “Steps to Sexual Integrity.” This program is open to any patient or community member who is interested in gaining back control of her sexuality to create a groundwork from which she can make better, healthier decisions.
The program is a comprehensive approach to dealing with sexual trauma, sexual abuse, or sexual misuse (any sexual behavior outside of marriage).
Steps to Sexual Integrity allows women to create a foundation from which healthy relationships can be built. Participants are shown that our sexuality is much more than just sex. Sexuality is an important part of who we are, and because of that it is woven into every aspect of our lives. Our emotional, physical, social, intellectual and spiritual health and well-being is all part of our sexuality. Sexuality isn’t just limited to what we do with our bodies – it is a unique part of who we are.
The women who have participated in the program so far have received healing from past relationships and forged a path for healthy, happy futures.
One participant said:
“This has been a wonderful experience for me. It helped to turn something so troubling and black in my life into a good experience. It helped me get through a few extremely hard parts in my life. Instead of burying it down it helped me confront, accept and heal. I’m so very thankful this class was offered to me. I feel like I’ve grown so much as a person, as a woman and can go positively into being a better mom for my baby.”
Steps to Sexual Integrity can help women heal from painful past decisions, and create a foundation for a successful future. If you are interested in learning more about our Steps to Sexual Integrity program, call us today at 863-393-6988.
