Survivor Art Group

This group is currently on hold due to COVID-19.

Safe: This group provides a safe, confidential space where clients can express themselves.
Accessible: Everyone is capable of creative expression, regardless of age, ability, or circumstance.
Expressive: Art is an excellent outlet for emotions and a great way to release energy. It allows an individual to put difficult words or thoughts and feelings into art form.
Empowering: Through the creative process, people can practice change in small ways, showing themselves that they have the strengths and skills to make bigger changes.
Mindful: When people are making something, they are present in the here and now; art can be an excellent way to practice mindfulness.
Strengthening: Art encourages verbal and non-verbal communication which strengthens connections  between the left and right side of the brain. It essentially makes your brain stronger!
Mental Health: Art can also improve mental, emotional, and physical healing

Sexual Assault/ Adults Molested as Children Group

This group is currently on hold due to COVID-19.

This is a group for adults that were molested as a child/teen or who have been sexually assaulted as an adult.  YOU ARE NOT ALONE. ​The program is a peer support system providing guidance to those who have suffered greatly due to unresolved sexual abuse during childhood/adolescent years or as an adult.  

This program provides a safe environment to promote the healing process towards overcoming this obstacle and becoming a healthy survivor. We discuss leaning to trust while setting healthy boundaries, how to respect yourself, staying safe, and getting help from safe people.  We will find healthy techniques for dealing with anger, taking good care of yourself, begin healing from stress-related events, and how to make the present and future better than the past.
