What to Expect

If you are interested in scheduling a therapy appointment for yourself, please call (919) 967-7273 to begin the screening process. Our screening process is in place to ensure we are the right fit for your therapeutic needs. We serve survivors of sexual violence and their loved ones who are: 

  • Ages 13 years and up
  • Reporting experiencing symptoms as a result of sexual violence, which have impaired their quality of life
  • Experiencing barriers to accessing mental health treatment including:
        • No insurance or accessing services through insurance would compromise safety
        • Lack of finances for high copay
        • Needing accommodations for mobility aids
        • Feeling unsafe with other providers
        • Needing bilingual providers

The initial phone screening occurs before your first session. The in-take will take place during your first appointment. You will not be required to discuss or describe any experiences or trauma during the initial phone screening. It will cover basic information regarding the types of therapy you are seeking and answer more specific questions about our services

After your phone screening, if our services suit your needs, you will schedule your first appointment. If our services do not suit your needs, we will work with you to find a provider that is a right fit for you.
