The Mental Health Services Program has been licensed by Arizona Department of Health Services since 1999 and offers intensive outpatient psychotherapy to crime victims in order to reduce the trauma of sexual assault. Trauma is an overwhelming emotional experience of shock, horror, and helplessness. It can create substantial and lasting damage to a person’s psychological and relational potential.

Staff therapists are all licensed by Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners and provide individual, couple, family, and group therapy related to all mental health issues resulting from sexual trauma.

Psychotherapy is designed to help survivors and secondary survivors increase their coping skills; improve social, emotional, and behavioral dysfunction; improve the quality of their relationships; and increase their capacity to build a support system. The client and therapist in collaboration create a Treatment Plan with measurable goals and objectives. All therapy goals and objectives are targeted toward helping people function optimally at home, at work, in school, in their families and other relationships, and as productive members of our community. As a result of VOCA funding, four staff therapists are also able to offer all clients Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as an aid to their therapy.
