FINDING YOUR VOICE

COUNSELING

Since its inception in 1996, the SARC Legal Services Program has focused on implementing, expanding, and maintaining efforts to provide quality legal assistance to victims of domestic violence.

Survivors of violence are in the process of healing from trauma, but the effects of trauma are different for each person. Acknowledging that you or your children may need help processing these emotions is a key step in the healing process.

SARC offers women, men and children individual and group counseling. Weekday and Weeknight appointments are available.

SARC is staffed with Masters Level and Licensed Counselors who provide a number of treatment modalities such as Art Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. The counseling process is tailored to each individual clients needs as your work together with your counselor to set and attain goals necessary to aide in healing from past trauma and abuse.
