For many survivors of domestic violence, therapy offers a wonderful avenue for healing and growth. Therapy at W.O.M.A.N., Inc., offered in Spanish and English, is provided by MFT (marriage and family therapist) interns and trainees from various universities in the Bay Area. Our unique program focuses on the strengths of the survivor, offering non-judgmental support for their individual journey. It is a safe space for survivors to share their experiences, gain a greater understanding of the dynamics of domestic violence, and learn invaluable skills needed to live a life free from violence.
In addition to individual therapy, W.O.M.A.N., Inc. offers family therapy for survivors with children. In this venue, parenting skills and other family dynamics are addressed. This not only improves family relationships, but serves as a violence prevention tool as it teaches children models for non-violent, healthy relationships.
Our trainees and interns are an integral part of the W.O.M.A.N., Inc. team. They participate in all aspects of agency services, including the provision of crisis line counseling, support group facilitation, and program planning and development. They are greatly valued and appreciated for the amazing work they do for survivors.
