At the Rape Recovery Center, we are passionate about trauma-informed care. With an unprecedented amount of research and information available to us, we have modeled all of our healing services using the latest knowledge about healing from trauma. Key to our approach to trauma treatment is our therapeutic services. All of our professionally trained therapists are trained in specific methods for treating post-traumatic stress, like Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

While there are many ways to practice trauma therapy, and no one treatment works for everyone, we do know one thing - healing from trauma is possible when we couple our expertise in how the brain is impacted by post-traumatic stress with our client's expertise of their own mind, body, and life experience. When asked about her work at the Rape Recovery Center, therapist Phoebe Galvez states "The most rewarding moments in therapy happen when my clients begin to believe in themselves and their capacity to sit with incredibly difficult things, and find moments in life that empower them to thrive, as opposed to just survive."
