SAVE recognizes that survivors and their children often experience trauma as a result of intimate partner violence. SAVE further recognizes that there is no time limit on trauma recovery; abuse from years back may still impact an individual today. SAVE provides free mental health services to support survivors and their family as they heal from their abusive experience.
SAVE’s support groups, individual therapy, family therapy, empowerment groups, and couple’s work help individuals break the cycle of violence and live healthier lives. Therapy is provided by master’s and doctoral level trainees and supervised by a licensed clinical psychologist. While each clinician brings their own style and theoretical orientation, all therapists provide care through a trauma-informed lens and utilize best practices in cognitive-behavioral strategies.
