About two years ago, my son revealed that he had been sexually abused by a young neighbor for about six years (ages 5 to 11). He had been seeing a therapist but I didn't feel the therapist was helping although my son kept saying he was helping A LOT. Now, the therapist has moved to a location far away and my son DESPERATELY needs to be back in therapy.

My son is not a child--heading into his late 20s--and his life is slipping away. He dropped out of school, quit his job...If he isn't with his girlfriend, he's watching TV, playing video games or sleeping.

My son says he's asked people here to recommend therapists but they were all in NYC. DOES ANYONE KNOW OF AN APPROPRIATE THERAPIST ON LONG ISLAND?

Thank you

Take a look at the "Consumer's Guide to Therapist Shopping" to help you select a competent therapist. It is located on the home page for referrals.
