Counseling

 

Rockford Sexual Assault Counseling (RSAC) therapists aim to provide a safe, non-judgemental and empowering space for survivors to work through the effects of their trauma.

 

RSAC understands the impact sexual assault can have on a person's life, including those around them. Sexual assault can have a huge impact on the way a person expresses themselves personally and within relationships. Survivors may feel guilt, shame, fear, anxiety, depression and vulnerability after their trauma. It may take years after the trauma event to recognize these feelings. Counseling helps the survivor recognize these feelings, create coping skills, and help adjust to life after sexual assault.

 

    Survivors who seek out services often receive help with issues such as:

  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Rape Trauma Syndrome
  • Flashbacks
  • Repeated Thoughts and/or Memories
  • Anxiety/Fear
  • Depression
  • Nightmares
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Eating Issues
  • Trust & Safety Concerns
  • Relationship Issues
  • Self Esteem

 

*All therapists are master's level clinicians who have specialized in the treatment of sexual abuse*

Types of Counseling

 

Individual

RSAC offers a wide range of counseling services including individual and group therapy. For children we

offer play therapy and we have a therapist who specializes in adolescent sexual assault/abuse therapy.

 

Group

Sexual assault survivor groups are facilitated based off of need. Members must be assessed

by an RSAC therapist and attend individual therapy sessions twice a month in order to be considered

for group. If you are interested in group, please contact us to start individual therapy

sessions or talk to your RSAC therapist for more information.
