Equinox counselors address needs identified by the victim and provide options for safety, an understanding of the nature of domestic violence, and problem-solving strategies. Individual counseling appointments are available for victims and their children.

Support groups provide peer support and an opportunity to discuss experiences about family violence in a group setting. We offer specialized groups for adults and children.
