After news broke that Farrah Abraham will star in a new video from Vivid, the former Teen Mom star rushed to cover her tracks. Although there is good reason to doubt what Farrah says, she does have one significant ally in her Couples Therapy counselor, Dr. Jenn Berman.
In a new statement, Dr. Jenn defended Farrah by saying the young mother is “working to move past these tapes.” She added the footage for Farrah 2: Backdoor and More was shot before Couples Therapy.
The statement reads in full…
People have asked me my thoughts about Farrah’s new sex tapes. This is what I have to say. On the topic…
Farrah was totally honest and forthcoming in her therapy with me on Couples Therapy. I was completely aware of the other footage that she shot prior to our work together knew that it would be potentially be getting released.
I understand how it can be hard for the lay person to understand how someone can financially benefit from a tape like this and still be a victim. Multiple traumas, especially childhood physical abuse and sexual trauma are associated with higher risk for revictimization. When we feel unworthy and lack self esteem, we are more likely to make choices that are degrading and demeaning.
It breaks my heart that the self destructive choices Farrah made prior to our work together will continue to haunt her. I see how hard Farrah is working to move past these tapes and I have complete faith that she will continue on her new healthier path and will turn her life around now that she knows that she deserves better.
Catch Farrah Abraham and Dr. Jenn Berman on VH1’s Couples Therapy this Thursday at 9/8c.
