“Healing doesn’t mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls my life.” — Akshay Dubey 

Therapy can be a powerful part of the healing journey and we are here to help you access it. See below for details.

We offer free, short-term, trauma-informed therapy for survivors of sexual violence and their loved ones.

We are currently in the process of making exciting updates to our therapy program! Check back soon to learn more about our new therapy services for survivors and their loved ones.

During this process, our therapy referral services are still active! We will work with you to provide customized mental health and basic needs referrals that are a right fit for you. We can connect you with mental health providers who take insurance, offer reduced fees, or who provide pro bono (free) services.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sometimes called “talk therapy” or “psychotherapy,” the therapy we’re able to connect you to involves meeting with a trained mental health professional and talking about whatever challenges you might be experiencing. In general, therapy can last a few weeks or multiple years, depending on the therapist’s availability and your needs and preferences. 

If you are working with someone you trust and who’s properly trained, and if you are wanting to make progress in therapy, it’s very likely that therapy will help you achieve at least some of your goals. 

That’s OK! If you are unsure, call our helpline at (919) 967-7273 or email therapy@ocrcc.org. You can answer a few questions through our intake process, and then someone from our therapy programs team will follow up with you to talk more and answer any questions.
