- Individual Counseling
Sexual assault and domestic violence can affect a person’s social, physical and emotional well-being. Each person is unique and copes with crisis in his/her own way. There are a variety of emotions that a survivor can experience including shock, self blame, anger, shame and fear. Many survivors also experience flashbacks, nightmares, numbness, and hyper-vigilance. Upon completion of counseling, many survivors report feeling more in control of their lives and having a new understanding of how the violence has impacted their lives. Turning Point provides individual counseling services for children, teen and adult survivors of domestic and sexual violence. We also provide support for significant others.
- Support Groups
It is common for survivors to feel alone in dealing with the impact of violence on their lives. Support groups offer an opportunity for survivors to share their experiences and identify common feelings and gain the support of one another. Support groups can also be a catalyst for change (individually and through activism). Survivors often report that they feel less isolated by the end of the group. Turning Point offers a variety of support group opportunities for adults, children, teens, and families throughout the year.
Turning Point serves both female and male survivors, and our services are confidential and provided at no charge through funding by the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA).
