Professional Counseling Services

Counseling staff and interns have a variety of master’s level mental health and professional backgrounds, including community counseling, professional psychology, and social work. All DVRC employees and interns complete a 40-hour domestic violence specific intensive training prior to providing services to clients at our agency. All counseling services are available in English and Spanish. We make every effort we can to offer both bi-lingual and multi-culturally competent services in all of our programming. DVRC does not conduct psychological assessments.

Office Hours: Monday – Thursday, 10:00AM – 7:30PM. Closed Fridays.
