Healing & Counseling
Getting support from professionals and from people who have had similar experiences are two common ways that victims/survivors heal after a sexual assault. The Rape Crisis Center offers free individual counseling for survivors (ages 12 and up) and their support networks. We also facilitate or help facilitate a variety of free support groups.
