Our primary goal is to ensure sexual assault survivors can identify a sliding-scale, trauma-informed, healing professional for support. To meet the high demand for competent care, we provide education and training for practitioners seeking to cultivate sensitivity, knowledge, and expertise in creating a survivor-centered, trauma-informed practice.
The range of healing modalities we offer can address the impacts of sexual violence on body, mind, and soul. Our practitioners recognize the value of body-inclusive healing, understand symptoms as natural responses to trauma, and support their clients' capacity for resilience through empowering, personalized and collaborative approaches to care.
