COUNSELING & SUPPORT GROUPS

Traumatic experiences such as experiencing crime and abuse can create distressing reactions that are at times overwhelming and can linger for months or years. The Counseling Center specializes in helping traumatized survivors of crime and abuse to recover from the effects of these experiences.
The Coalition offers comprehensive counseling services to survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence and sexual assault. Our MFT interns and trainees provide individual, family and group counseling services. We offer support groups for victims of domestic violence, rape sexual assault, and incest/molestation. The Coalition also provides general counseling services.

WAYS TO GIVE
Our efforts are possible because of caring, compassionate individuals and organizations who believe victims deserve better and brighter futures, without violence and abuse. Thank you for choosing to support The Coalition and the families and communities we serve.
When a person exits a life of abuse, they have few, if any, possessions. Even with the promise of freedom, it is a frightening and confusing time. We seek to help ease the process of restoration as much as we can by providing counseling, comfort, and skills that can assist with the transition to a new life.
Our supporters stand at the center of every level of our restoration work. We would not be able to continue in this crucial work if it were not for your support. Thank you.
