INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

MOCSA’s counseling department is specifically trained to support survivors of sexual abuse and assault. We offer individual therapy and support groups for men and women, and these services are available no matter how recent or long it’s been since a sexual assault or abuse occurred.  
 
MOCSA therapists provide a variety of evidenced-based treatment modalities including EMDR, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), sand tray, and other brain-based interventions. Clients identify their own strengths and are supported as they navigate through their healing journey.

Virtual Support Group
This virtual group is open to sexual abuse and assault survivors of all genders. Facilitators plan activities and discussions focusing on self-care and self-reflection. The group meets on Thursdays from 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m. virtually via Doxy and will continue to do so once the other support groups have returned to in-person services.

* Please note that support groups are different from group therapy. Support groups are facilitated by advocates and are a safe space for survivors to connect and work on fostering connections, sharing emotions, and enhancing self-care. If you are looking for a space to process trauma and work on modifying thoughts and behaviors with a licensed counselor, group therapy may be a better fit. For group therapy options, please call the crisis line (816-531-0233) and an Intake Specialist will return your call with more information.
