New nonprofit to offer free therapy for sexual violence survivors

Sexual trauma survivors often face expensive bills for therapy and counseling, so a new nonprofit is working to break down that cost barrier.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Sexual trauma survivors often face expensive bills for therapy and counseling. Now, a new nonprofit is working to break down that cost barrier.

Bethany Lawson, who is in a ban with her husband, says music has helped her heal from the past.

“As I got older, music was the one thing that I was able to use to disclose what had happened to me,” Lawson said. “When it was too painful to talk about, I could still sing about it.”

Eventually, she shared her story.

“And when I did that, it was the beginning of me coming forward and talking about the abuse I had suffered as a child as well,” Lawson said.

Her songs paint a picture of her pain.

In addition to music, Lawson said therapy was also crucial to her healing.
