Counseling for LGBTQ Survivors

Counseling – Free and confidential crisis counseling is provided to survivors of sexual violence. This is available for the survivor and their family, friends, intimate partners, or other secondary survivors.

Legal Advocacy - If a client wishes to press charges against her/his assailant, our staff will serve as an advocate throughout the law enforcement and criminal justice proceedings.

Support Groups - Our Survivors of Sexual Violence Support Group offers a safe, non-threatening setting for survivors of sexual assault to talk and process their feelings within a group setting. Issues such as trust, anger, grief, coping and survival strategies, and self esteem are addressed. The support group provides a safe and confidential setting for survivors to share their feelings and thoughts with others who have experienced the same trauma.
