Counseling

Susan B. Anthony Project has trained advocates to work with victims or survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. Counseling sessions are typically one-on-one, but larger support groups are also offered.

We can also help you if you’re a relative or friend of someone who is a victim.

Support Groups

Victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault often feel very alone, and that no one can understand or relate to their experiences. You are not alone. Support groups can be a place to learn coping skills and lend support to others. You can also gain strength from others in your group.

Support groups can cover topics such as:

  • Healing from trauma
  • Surviving traumatic experiences
  • Building self-esteem

Visit our calendar and follow us on social media to learn more about our current and upcoming support group offerings.
