What is
Crisis Counseling?

Crisis counseling at the Elizabeth Buffum Chace Center is a vital service that provides immediate support and assistance to individuals facing traumatic experiences. Trained counselors offer a safe and empathetic environment where survivors can express their feelings, fears, and concerns without judgment. These counselors are equipped with specialized knowledge to address the complex dynamics of domestic violence and sexual assault, offering personalized guidance and resources tailored to each individual's needs. Crisis counseling aims to empower survivors by validating their experiences, helping them navigate the legal and medical systems, and connecting them with additional support services such as shelter, legal advocacy, and therapy. Through compassionate listening and validation, crisis counselors play a crucial role in helping survivors regain a sense of control, rebuild their lives, and ultimately break the cycle of abuse.
