Are You a Survivor?

If you are a survivor, we are glad you found us.  The Association and this website are for the training of licensed mental health professionals because we recognize the undertraining that has been prevalent in the field and wish to help survivors by training therapists in an evidenced-based, trauma-informed model of care.

As an FYI, the newsletters we offer are for therapists to become trained in working with survivors and are not survivor-oriented.

The first part of a two-part training was launched in January 2021 and we are happy to report the first workshop has trained over 2,000 people in 2021.  Therapists are required to take the second part of the training which will become available in February of 2022. 

Once therapists have taken both trainings, this website will house a database of therapists trained by the Association. You will be able to use the database to select a therapist. Please check back.

In the meantime, you may want to contact Bree Bonchay, a therapist who serves on our Board of Advisors. (The other Board members do not provide therapy or do not have openings at this time, so please do not contact them.)

Please note Bree is not a pro bono therapist, and neither are any of the others.

Ultimately, YOU are the reason that the Association exists and the reason we are working so hard to train professional therapists to best help you. We look forward to providing trained therapists in the near future for your recovery needs.  Thank you.
