Compassionate Sexual Abuse Counseling

"You may trod me in the very dirt, but still, like dust, I'll rise."
— Maya Angelou

Rape and other acts of sexual assault are crimes of violence. The fault lies solely with the perpetrator. SAFE has therapists available to help victims deal with the assault that has happened to them. Victims of sexual crimes may be haunted by nightmares and may feel numb, frightened, and in shock. They may have trouble trusting others, or feel embarrassed, angry, or overwhelmed with negative memory triggers. There is hope. Breaking the silence is the first step. Do not keep holding on to hurtful secrets. Reach out to us today for sexual abuse counseling.

Our Counseling Services

Counselors offer encouragement to victims facing the challenges of recovery. Counseling can help clients regain a sense of control over their lives and move from being victims to becoming survivors. Counseling is also available to supportive family members and friends. If you are the parent or guardian of a child victim, please contact us.

Counselors offer individual counseling, survivor support group meetings, and family counseling, to help victims start on the road to sexual assault recovery. Counseling services are available regardless of age, race, gender, creed, or sexual preference. We see children as young as two years old through senior adults. It’s never too late to seek help, regardless of how long ago the violation occurred. All of our counseling services are free and confidential. Contact us to schedule an appointment.



Empowering You through Our Sexual Abuse Counseling

The most important aspect of our sexual abuse counseling is its ability to uplift participants and rebuild self-esteem after such a devastating event. Through careful, collaborative guidance, our team provides confidence-focused and attentive support in the form of conversation, resources, and education that can help clients move forward in their lives.

From our programs for adults to our teen and child counseling options, we strive to give hurt and vulnerable people the source of empowerment they need to re-center and discover a path toward progress and comfort. No matter what you need to say, or how alone you feel, you can always find a kind and caring ear through our therapy program.
