Dr. Schroder specializes in the treatment of sexual concerns, intimate betrayal trauma, and out-of-control sexual behaviors (OCSB). She has extensive training in the intersecting topics of human sexuality, relationships, trauma, addiction, and compulsive/out-of-control sexual behaviors and utilizes this to inform an individualized course of treatment. Dr. Schroder is committed to cultivating an understanding and compassionate therapeutic environment where individuals can ask questions, gain greater self-awareness, and develop skills to build a full life congruent with their values.
The Posttraumatic Growth Model for Intimate Betrayal (PTG-IB; Olsen & Schroder, 2020) is an innovative treatment approach based on an empirically supported trauma treatment for posttraumatic stress symptoms. The PTG-IB model offers compassionate support and guidance through the initial crisis phase, while focusing on healing the symptoms of trauma and tending to the devastating impact on one’s sexuality. This trauma-informed treatment can help clients heal from the repercussions of intimate betrayal, including the devastating beliefs they carry from the traumatic discovery, the wounds to their esteem, the re-experiencing trauma symptoms they are plagued with, and the impact on their emotional and sexual intimacy. These areas are addressed while providing compassionate support, helping the client cultivate empowerment, voice their needs, and reclaim their life.
