“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 make you feel 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, trained in EMDR, and have received training at the master's or doctoral level. And most importantly, we are compassionate and kind.
Counseling services are provided at no cost.
Our counselors provide individual and group therapy to survivors of sexual violence, ages 13 and older.
Services are also available to the family and friends of the survivor as they support their loved one through the healing process.

Building Secure Attachments: Sign up here

We will explore what attachment styles are, how they often affect us throughout our lives, and how to start moving towards secure attachments. If you ever felt alone, abandoned, not supported, or you were the only one with parents that weren’t “normal” or just not good, this group is for you!
Trauma in the Body: Sign up here
Will begin on Wednesday October 25 at 5:00 pm. This is a psychoeducational and topic-discussion group taking place virtually every week on Microsoft Teams.
This group is focused on what happens to our body, nervous system, and brain when we go through trauma. Why connection to the body is so important and what do we do if we are disconnected from our body. We also focus on the effects of living in trauma responses, how do we become aware that we even are, and learning new coping/regulating techniques.
