We provide short-term individual, couples, family, and group counseling with licensed clinicians and trained counselors for survivors of sexual violence and their families and friends. We work with survivors and their loved ones to find their strengths, to understand the impact of trauma on their lives, to build and use coping skills, and to explore ways to heal and thrive.
Our counseling services are free and confidential to people ages 12 and older. All services are available in English and Spanish, with other languages, including ASL, available with prior notice. Reasonable accommodations will be provided.
