Our Therapy Services
Roanoke Park Counseling offers a variety of professional, affordable therapeutic services—both individual and group—to address the needs of adults who are survivors of childhood sexual abuse, and to help their partners as well.
The core of all treatment is to help survivors:
- Address the abuse itself
- Deal with the life effects of abuse
- Lead more productive and satisfying lives
RPC’s goal is to reduce the obstacles to each individual's desire to heal. We realize that this journey may take place over an extended period of time. We hold the conviction that within each of our clients is the desire and power to heal.
All therapists at RPC are professionally credentialed and have received specialized training in the areas of childhood sexual abuse and trauma.

Individual therapy creates a healing connection so a survivor can address the abuse, the life effects stemming from the abuse, and begin to regain the sense of self lost through years of coping with the effects of abuse.
Based on an initial interview, a client's needs and preferences are considered when selecting a therapist. Within the framework of therapy, the therapist gains understanding of each survivor's unique experience and provides support and guidance to foster healing and growth to allow survivors to become their own agents of change.
RPC offers 10-week introductory and 21-week closed process groups for men and for women. Gender-specific groups offer survivors the opportunity to experience growth and healing with others who share a similar history. Group therapy creates therapeutic connection and allows for the lessening of secrecy, isolation and stigma resulting from the trauma of sexual abuse.
Together with the skilled leadership of the therapist, group members create an environment of safety and consistency, where they may explore the effects of sexual abuse and develop trusting relationships with others.
Introductory 10-week groups are formed as a beginning step for survivors in understanding the impact of their abuse. This gender-specific group is ideal for survivors who are beginning to address the effects of childhood sexual abuse in their lives and wish to join with other survivors for support and education.
Partner Support Groups
These co-ed groups offer support and education to partners of survivors. The primary focus of the group is to provide support for the partners, recognizing that there are often challenges inherent in relationships with individuals who have suffered sexual abuse in childhood.
Sexual abuse often creates profound and negative obstacles in a couple's relationship. RPC offers couples therapy services to couples wishing to explore the impact of the abuse on their relationship. Difficulties with trust, communication and sexuality, among other topics, can be explored with the skilled help of a specially trained therapist.
The effects of childhood sexual abuse can damage all relationships within a family. RPC’s therapists understand the often far-reaching effects of sexual abuse on a family system, and offer services that support healing family relationships.
