Counseling & Support Groups

Individual Therapy

The HAVEN counselor provides individual therapy sessions to participants. Our counselor offers 20 hours of therapy a month on a first come first serve basis. All sessions are free and confidential. Our participants may request sessions by calling the crisis line and speaking with their advocate. One on one sessions address issues regarding self-esteem, understanding needs, recognizing feelings, learning effective ways to communicate with others, healing from abuse and personal growth. Individual therapy is a participant driven process where participants set personal goals they would like to achieve during individual sessions.

Adult Support Group

The Adult Support Group meets weekly on Monday nights at the shelter for an hour and a half. These sessions are open to women staying in the shelter and women in the community and to women at all stages in the healing process. During these sessions, our facilitator Ania leads discussion about current or past abuse. Members of the group are encouraged to share their experiences and relate with the experiences of their peers. The HAVEN counselor educates the women on patterns of abuse, life skills, personal finances, effective communication, healing from abuse, self esteem and more. Participants who attend the Adult Support Group have realized that they can make positive changes in their life and the lives of their children. Survivors find courage to get orders of protection, reconnect with their families, learn new life skills, become economically self-sufficient, and to live their life expecting respect. To attend Adult Support Group, call (406) 586-7689 for directions to our confidential site.

Three Forks Area Support Group

We are excited to announce that we will be holding a weekly peer support group for survivors that live in the Three Forks area. The group will be run the same way as our weekly meetings at the shelter but will allow participants that live farther away to benefit from this service. If you are interested in attending the Three Forks Area Support Group, please call our crisis line, 406.586.4111.
