COUNSELING

“Being able to feel safe with other people is probably the single most important aspect of mental health; safe connections are fundamental to meaningful and satisfying lives.” 

Bessel van der Kolk

Trauma can leave you feeling isolated, but you don’t have to be alone. We are specially trained to help you process the overwhelming pain of sexual trauma.  We are well-versed in trauma-focused care, are EMDR-trained, and have received master’s or doctoral level training.  And most importantly, we are compassionate and kind.

 

  • Counseling services are provided at no cost. 

  • Our counselors provide individual therapy to survivors of sexual violence, ages 13 and up.

  • The Teen Survivor Group is for ages 14-17.

  • All other groups are for ages 18 and up.

  • Services are also available to the survivor's family and friends as they support their loved one through the healing process. 

If you are interested in our free counseling services, you can reach us on our 24/7 Crisis Hotline at 1-800-886-7273. 

 

Please provide an advocate your name, phone number, and age. At that time, our advocate will pass along your information to our clinical team who will follow-up with you in 2-3 business days.
