S.A.C. provides crisis intervention, individual counseling sessions, as well as group counseling sessions. Crisis intervention counseling is offered to anyone who has recently experienced rape, sexual abuse, or are currently in crisis from past abuse.
Individual counseling sessions are typically 45-50 minutes, once per week. We provide individual counseling for:
Children (ages 3-12) and teenagers (ages 13-18) who have been sexually abused
Children under the age of 12 with sexual behavior concerns
Adults who were abused as children
Rape survivors of all ages
Non-offending parents, caregivers, family members and significant others of those who have sexually abused
Spanish-speaking survivors and family members
Group counseling sessions are created based on the needs of current clients, referral sources or callers interested in being in a group. Some groups take several months to start to ensure that an appropriate number of members can be involved. All groups at S.A.C. are closed, meaning once the group begins, no new members can be added. This is done to provide the utmost healing, nurturing and safe environment for group members. Groups are approximately 90 minutes, once per week.
**Our 24-Hour Crisis & Support Line is available for immediate assistance for ongoing support. The line is operated by trained staff and volunteers. Please call 1.800.879.1999 for immediate Crisis & Support Line services.
S.A.C. therapists have specialized training and credentialing in many evidence-based and evidence-informed practices, enabling us to provide the highest quality treatment to our clients. We recognize that safety within the counseling relationship is just as important as the modality utilized and therefore take great care in matching clients with their therapists. We view the counselor and client relationship as a key factor in the healing process, knowing that when relational trauma and ruptures have occurred, healing often happens in the context of a safe therapeutic relationship. We believe that each individual is the expert on themselves and truly has everything within them to move towards healing. S.A.C. therapists and clients collaborate together to develop an individualized treatment plan that is flexible and unique to that individual’s needs and goals.
