Whether it’s a few days after the abuse or years after whether the assault happened locally or outside of the country-we’re here to help. We offer free, confidential counseling services to survivors of sexual violence and anyone else who’s been impacted, including survivors’ non-offending acquaintances, friends, family, and partners. Our goal is to help clients heal from issues stemming from the trauma of sexual violence, cope with the immediate crisis, and regain a sense of control and trust. Our counselors use a variety of therapeutic approaches, including but not limited to, cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, narrative therapy, and bilateral stimulation (EMDR).

Individual Counseling: Provides an open, supportive, and confidential environment to address the issues that are concerning you.

Couples Counseling: Helps non-offending partners heal from the lasting physical and psychological effects of sexual violence.

Family Counseling: Targets relationships and the overall functioning of the family unit for non-offending family members.

Play Therapy: Helps children cope with difficult emotions and find solutions to their problems.

Support Groups: Helps build trust and camaraderie among survivors as participants collectively explore the causes of their issues.
