Individual, Couples and Family Therapy

For clients ages 13 and older, master’s level therapists provide counseling that addresses the issues and symptoms resulting from childhood or adult sexual assault, abuse or commercial sexual exploitation. As with other services, therapy is also available to family members and friends of victim-survivors.

There is a fee for this service. While we do accept most major insurances, we also have a sliding-scale fee available for those with limited incomes. We accept Crime Victims Compensation for those who qualify.
