Counseling and Support Groups

DOVE Center provides counseling at no charge to victims of domestic violence, rape, or sexual assault who could not otherwise access counseling services. Our counselors employ therapy which focuses on the individual to minimize re-victimization, facilitate healing, emphasize individual choice, and strengthen personal boundaries and privacy. This type of trauma-informed therapy enables survivors to utilize practical tools to cope with and heal from the effects of trauma caused by abuse and violence. Additionally, our partnership with many community agencies allows us to access the best services for your individual needs.

Developing a strong support system is one key to establishing independence and reclaiming yourself. DOVE Center offers weekly support groups to both English and Spanish speaking adult survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault. The group setting is a place to learn more about the dynamics of domestic and sexual violence and provide support to one another. We offer a weekly youth program as well to facilitate a more healthy recovery for children exposed to domestic violence. Closed therapy groups are also available.
