Girl Thrive

GirlThrive is where girl teens healing from rape and incest victoriously emerge.

We know that girls and young women heal from sexual abuse and this is a web-site designed by Dr. Patti Feuereisen, a psychologist from New York City that brings you real stories from real girls, real information from real experts, web-links, and all kinds of helpful insights into sexual abuse and young women. We are reaching out to all teen girls and young women who have experienced sexual abuse, or who know someone who is a survivor, or who just want to know the truth about sexual abuse. We invite you to read other girls stories and Dr. Patti's feedback, we invite you to enlighten us and to let us help you. GirlThrive is also the name for the scholarship fund Dr. Patti inaugurated to help incest survivors. It is the aim of this fund to assist survivors with college tuition so that they can escape from their molesters, educate by donating Invisible Girls to young women everywhere.
