Programs & Services - Healing

Trauma Counseling - free and confidential counseling services to victims and their families to help strengthen emotional stability and healing.

What does individual counseling look like?

  • Following a traumatic event such as physical or sexual assault, clients can receive short-term counseling to help process what occurred, identify a support system, build coping skills, and seek other resources if needed.
  • Oftentimes after homicide or multiple victimizations, it may be difficult to deal with immediate emotions. Our counselors can provide ongoing support to help navigate complex emotions and process traumatic grief for years after the incident.

How does individual counseling work?

  • Potential clients can call or click here to schedule an intake assessment, which will determine if services are appropriate.
  • After the intake, clients will have sessions as frequently as needed. The counselor will provide psychoeducational information such as normal responses to grief or trauma, and they will discuss different strategies to help cope with the feelings that may arise following a traumatic event.
  • CVRCC counselors are licensed and master’s level clinicians who use evidence-based treatment modalities such as Interpersonal Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Who can receive counseling?

  • Adults and youth age 13 and older are eligible for counseling services.
  • All residents of Shelby County are eligible for services. A person may also be eligible for services if the crime occurred in Shelby County.
