John: "I'm Still Dealing with the Fallout of Sexual Abuse"

CC | tv-pg
John reaches out to Maria, a former military officer who was sexually assaulted and is struggling to overcome the trauma. This is a particularly difficult meeting for John, who was sexually abused as a child.

"Very rarely do we heal past trauma unless, of course, we have a lot of counseling, and even then it's never easy," John says. "I'm still dealing with the fallout of sexual abuse, and I'm 43 years old, and I've been married for six years."

In a revealing moment, John suggests to Maria that they both embark on a journey of healing and "get free together."
