Counseling Services

Rise is providing individual therapeutic counseling in person, by telephone or through zoom.  Please call 748.5174 if you would like to receive counseling services. 

Rise offers counseling for survivors of domestic violence whether they are in our shelter or not. Our Social Worker or an Advocate will plan with you to connect you with the counseling services desired. 

There are currently three formats of counseling offered through Rise:

Pattern Changing Group:

This group seeks to help survivors who have been court ordered to receive domestic violence counseling. This group is facilitated by our staff members who work with clients with domestic violence and child abuse or neglect concerns.

Therapeutic Counseling Group:

 This group is facilitated by our Social Worker and an advocate.  It focuses on empowerment and healing with others who understand your experiences.  

Both the Pattern Changing Group and Therapeutic Counseling Group are temporarily being provided through zoom due to COVID.

Individual Counseling:

Individual counseling sessions are facilitated by our Social Worker and are available at no cost, for up to eight sessions. You will be welcomed to our agency and provided with information on all services available. Together with the Social Worker, you will discuss goals of therapy based on your individual situation. Tools for coping with trauma, building self-esteem, increasing your support system base, self-care, goal setting, and rebuilding your life are often topics of discussion.
