Update, Sep. 2020:
SASS’s counseling services are on hold as we transition providers. Anyone needing immediate support can contact SASS’s 24/7 Crisis and Support Hotline at 541-343-7277 or 844-404-7700. For those seeking counseling, we can recommend the following resources:
SASS offers free counseling services to sexual assault survivors as well as the partners, friends, and family of survivors. Our counselor has experience in providing trauma-specific care to help survivors of sexual assault heal.
If you are seeking to work through the fallout from a traumatic experience, our SASS counselor may be able to help. Counseling at SASS may include processing the trauma, or working on the remnants left from the trauma, such as managing emotions and reactions to situations, boundary setting struggles, self-worth issues, how to manage emotions connected to our past, struggles with developing trust with others or forming intimate relationships, and much more.
In addition, if you are seeking support for the vicarious trauma experienced by being close to someone who was sexually assaulted, SASS may be able to help.
Due to community needs, there are times when the use of a wait-list is necessary. When this happens, we will work with you to locate other counseling services within the community so you have options available, and we will notify you as soon as we have an opening.
All SASS services are free and confidential. Donations gladly accepted. Speak with your counselor (or any other staff person) if you would like to make a donation.
Support groups provide an opportunity to share experiences, learn new perspectives, and experiment with new behaviors in a safe and supportive environment. Drop-in groups are led by experienced facilitators and offer a constructive environment for peer support. For more information, visit our Support Groups page.
