ContactLifeline offers individual, family, and group therapy sessions for survivors of sexual violence and their loved ones.
We provide therapy to any person over the age of 12 who has been impacted by sexual violence, including parents, partners, and friends. We are sensitive to a wide variety of experiences, genders, physical abilities, sexual orientations, ages, and races. Counseling services are available in both English and Spanish.
We see clients once for a single crisis intervention session, or on an ongoing basis; there is no minimum or cap on the number of sessions that each client may receive. We also provide family and couples’ therapy, and offer a support group for survivors.
Our services are at no cost, and we do not bill insurance.
Our therapists are Master’s level clinicians with years of experience working with survivors of trauma. They engage in ongoing professional development to remain current in the field of trauma and recovery and to provide the highest quality services to our clients.
ContactLifeline offers Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is a method of psychotherapy that has been proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is physiologically based therapy that helps a person experience traumatic memories in a new and less distressing way. EMDR is widely regarded as one of the most effective therapeutic tools for decreasing symptoms of trauma.
