Counseling Services

Violence – particularly long-term, intimate partner violence – affects the way you view yourself and your world.
Even after ending an abusive relationship, it may be difficult to trust and develop new relationships.
If you are having problems in your relationship, we can help. Both of you deserve a safe and healthy relationship.
You - and your children – can heal from the long-term effects and trauma of domestic abuse. We offer Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) for children (ages 2-7) with behavior problems and well as other trauma informed counseling services. Counseling is available for children, teens and adults.
Counseling is provided by MFTI’s, MSWI’s and MFT Trainees, under the supervision of a licensed Clinical Supervisor. We accept Victim Witness and have limited grant funding, both of which may help make these services available at no cost to you.
