Counseling Services

Cleveland Rape Crisis Center offers counseling services to children and adult survivors of rape, sex trafficking and sexual abuse as well as support services to partners, parents and family members.  Our highly trained staff will work with you to design a recovery plan that is right for you.

We serve children and adults, women and men, impacted by the continuum of sexual trauma exposure, from acute incidents such as a recent rape or sexual abuse, to chronic experiences of childhood sexual abuse.  Many clients come to us years or decades following their traumatic experience and after many years of unsuccessful treatment.

Our Approach

We strive to create a safe, welcoming, healing, and respectful environment where survivors and their families find support.  We serve all survivors of rape and sexual assault and those supportive of them, regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, race, income, ability, or religion.

Priority Services

For any survivor assaulted within the last 30 days to cope with the immediate traumatic effects.  We will make every effort to see you as soon as we can possibly arrange an appointment.

Short-Term Counseling

Counseling sessions for any survivor of rape or sexual abuse looking to process the ways in which their sexual abuse or rape impacts life today, and to learn how to cope and move forward in their lives in healthy ways.

Child and Family Services

In-home counseling for children ages 0-8 impacted by rape and sexual assault, and counseling for youth ages 8-18 impacted by rape and sexual abuse.  We also offer counseling services for non-offending family members.

Support Sessions

Up to four counseling sessions for partners, parents, siblings or significant other relationships to cope with secondary trauma.
