James, survivor of early childhood abuse and sexual offender, shares his story. S1E8
Listener discretion is advised.
In this episode of Journey On, D.J. talks with James Reyes – a 38-year-old from Tennessee. James shares his experience of being abused from 4yrs old to 12 years of age by three different people. James is not only an abuse survivor, he is also a sexual offender. It’s important to talk about James story, because it is one that we generally only hear negatives things about. Sexual predators may also be abuse survivors and their stories need to be told as well.
Hosted by D.J. Burr - a Seattle psychotherapist and author of I Just Wanted Love: Recovery of a Codependent, Sex and Love Addict.
Each episode of Journey On features real life accounts of sexual abuse and assault. You may be triggered by what you hear. I advise self-care tools; reaching out to a friend, seeing your therapist, picking a new time to listen to the show, or even listening with a group of friends. Take care of yourself first.
