How Does Survivors’ Counseling Work? You may be referred to individual counseling. This means you will meet by yourself with one of our trained domestic violence counselors or advocates. Our counselors are not only well-trained, but also kind and caring. Your counselor will help you set goals and take steps that could lead you to a life free of abuse. You’ll need to work hard at achieving your goals. But we will be there with you.

You may also be referred to group counseling, which is led by a domestic violence advocate or counselor from Esperanza. You will meet with other domestic abuse survivors, with whom you will work together to share your pain and joy and  gain strength and wisdom from one another.
