I share your pain. I too am a victim of child sexual abuse and physical abuse. I have been where you are, and know what you are going through. Coming forward, you are shining a light on the darkness, bravely sharing your secret, and saving another child from being abused, stopping a predator from harming another child. — Shari Karney
“You, survivor/ clients, are my heroes”.
Every day, I help victims of childhood sexual abuse reclaim their power and hold institutions accountable for allowing those abuses to occur. My history as a victim, survivor, and attorney, who changed the law in California to extend the statute of limitations (and worked with 40 other states) so victims could hold their perpetrators accountable. I pioneered the first extension of the statute of limitations for child victims of sexual abuse. I know what it is like to be silenced, blamed, shamed, disbelieved, disowned by family and institutions. To turn against ourselves instead of fighting our abusers.
