Reclaiming Your Voice: Survivors of Sexual Assault Support Group

Description

“I survived because I remained soft, because I listened, because I wrote. Because I huddled close to my truth, protected it like a tiny flame in a terrible storm." - Chanel Miller, Know My Name

Experiencing sexual assault is often an isolating, traumatic event. This support group aims to be a safe, healing space where you can be supported in community with people who have had similar experiences. Utilizing narrative, art, mindfulness, and social justice principles, this group will help you reclaim your story and move forward with strength.

Group participants must attend all six sessions. It is highly recommended to be in individual therapy concurrently, or to have at least participated in therapy in the past. This is a support group and is not meant to replace individual therapy. Please reach out to me to schedule an introductory phone call to see if you might be a good fit for the group.

Group Therapist

Rooted in a social justice perspective, Natasha draws from a range of therapeutic styles to meet the needs of each unique client, including person-centered therapy, Internal Family Systems, mindfulness, and feminist therapy. She emphasizes self-compassion, mindfulness, and radical acceptance to help you reach your goals and feel empowered to make changes in your life. Natasha has experience working with clients dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, self esteem, and relationship issues.

Natasha is passionate about supporting clients experiencing perinatal mental health issues during pregnancy and the postpartum period. She also enjoys working with college/graduate students, survivors of sexual assault, healthcare workers, and people who have experienced reproductive and/or medical trauma.
