Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are

This FREE 13-week group is for women survivors of sexual assault and non-offending caregivers of child survivors. The material acts as a guide to a wholehearted life. We will learn about courage, gratitude, authenticity, self-compassion and resiliency. We will also explore creativity as a form of healing by keeping an art journal.

For more information or to register call Adriana or Trish at 540-305-1083.

 

 

Young Women's Lives

This FREE support group creates a safe space for young women (ages 13-19) to come together and support one another's successes and connect to each other's struggles. The group celebrates strength, experience, creativity, and intelligence and sessions help to establish personal strength, self-confidence, and connection. Sexual assault survivors can learn about common reactions to trauma while practicing skills for coping with upsetting thoughts and feelings.
