Counseling

KCCASA + ISAS Counselors work to provide support, empowerment, and recovery to victims of sexual assault and human trafficking and to their non-offending family members. Like all KCCASA + ISAS services, Counseling is free and confidential.

The impact of sexual assault and human trafficking can affect victims’ lives in many ways. They often experience excessive feelings of sadness, anger, fear, vulnerability, and guilt. Sometimes these issues surface years after the assault. These issues are confusing and can cause a victim to struggle in many areas of their life, both personally and in relationships.

KCCASA + ISAS provides counseling services to help lessen and alleviate the impact of sexual assault and human trafficking. Counseling addresses the psychological and emotional needs of individuals and families whose lives have been affected. Counselors help clients recognize how the sexual assault and or trafficking has impacted their feelings, relationships, self-esteem, and ability to function. Survivors commonly receive help in counseling with such issues as:

    • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
    • Rape Trauma Syndrome
    • Depression
    • Fears/Anxiety
    • Nightmares
    • Eating disorders
    • Self injury
    • Dissociation
    • Trust and safety issues
    • Self esteem
    • Relationship issues with families and intimate partners
