Recognition and Understanding

Through the therapeutic relationship, women are guided toward recognizing and understanding the profound impact of childhood sexual abuse on their lives. Our therapists provide a compassionate space for exploration, helping survivors navigate the complexities of their experiences and the meanings they hold about themselves, which often reinforce isolation, shame, and self-blame.

Group Support and Empowerment

In our supportive group environment, women survivors find a common voice that conveys acceptance and emphasizes their inherent power to heal. By sharing their stories and struggles with others who have walked similar paths, participants feel validated, understood, and less alone in their journey. Together, they cultivate a sense of solidarity and empowerment, fostering resilience and hope for the future.


Safe and Heard

Our group sessions provide a safe and confidential space where women can openly express their thoughts, feelings, and concerns without fear of judgment or retribution. Through active listening, validation, and empathic support, participants feel heard and validated in their experiences, laying the groundwork for deeper healing and self-discovery.
