Counseling Services

Our professional staff of counselors provides crisis intervention, safety planning and individual and group counseling in both English and Spanish to anyone who may be experiencing domestic abuse or previously has been involved in an abusive relationship.

Our counselors are sensitive to the special needs of victims of intimate partner violence and offer flexible schedule times and a supportive environment to help them work through the issues associated with abuse. Our goals are to ensure the safety of our clients, to help them rebuild self-esteem and self-confidence, and to help empower them to move toward a more independent existence and a life free from violence or abuse.

 DVCC services are for all victims of intimate partner violence. While the majority of victims are women who are abused by male partners, domestic violence touches everyone, regardless of age, gender, race, culture, religion, sexual identity, socio-economic level or educational attainment. DVCC works with victims of intimate partner violence who are heterosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.
