Therapy services


The professional licensed therapists at the Rape Recovery Center are specially trained to work with survivors on their journey of healing from the impact of sexual violence. They offer individual therapy sessions as well as a variety of groups for survivors.

Therapists work with each individual client to determine the best plan for each individual. This may include group therapy, individual therapy, or a combination of both. Occasionally, for various reasons clients are referred to outside providers.

Therapy at the Rape Recovery Center specializes in trauma focused recovery process’ that emphasize empowerment, self-compassion, self-awareness, and mindfulness. Our work with clients reflects a belief that much of the pain experienced in the aftermath of sexual trauma is caused by the rape myths and cultural norms that blame the victim, and reduce feelings of resiliency and empowerment.  Recovery from the effects of sexual trauma is a journey, and therapy is individualized to each client based on the client's strengths, interests and personal goals.  

We also offer various therapy groups, listed here.  Group times and additional information are available at the initial service planning meeting.  

Survivors  are encouraged to call the Rape Recovery Center to schedule an initial appointment . This meeting is the first step to starting services and  individuals can expect to learn about services offered, communicate their current needs and ask questions.  After this initial appointment survivors have the option to continue working with an advocate in short term counseling to prepare for deeper therapeutic re-processing work.

The Rape Recovery Center offers a $0-$75 suggested sliding fee scale, depending on household income of the client.
