THE ALDER PROGRAM COUNSELING SERVICES
SARC’s Counseling Program welcomes survivors with warmth, kindness, and an understanding that taking the first step towards healing can be difficult. Our counselors have expertise in providing trauma-specific care to help survivors of sexual assault heal.
We offer completely free individual and group counseling to individuals who:
- Are 15 years or older
- Live in Washington County (requirement for individual counseling only)
- Have been sexually assaulted in their adolescence or adulthood
- Wish to focus on sexual trauma recovery in their mental health treatment
To access our services, please call our office at 503-626-9100 x 231 or ask to speak to a counselor. *Please note that our individual counseling waitlist is currently closed for English-speaking services.
At SARC we believe that we are not defined by our past events. We provide trauma informed care in a safe healing environment for gentle exploration to help individuals find hope and decrease the impact of trauma. SARC’s counseling program is dedicated to helping folks feel empowered and reconnected with their core selves.
