Our VOICE offers counseling services to residents of Buncombe County, ages 13 and up, regardless of gender identity, ethnicity, socio-economic status, religion, immigration status or sexual identity. Counseling is available in English and Spanish. At Our VOICE, we believe that counseling can provide the support and tools for a person to heal from an experience of sexual violence. We believe that anyone should be able to access counseling services.
These services are beneficial during crisis periods as well as throughout the lifetime of the survivor due to the impact that victimization has on one’s self-esteem, interpersonal relationships and patterns of behavior.
Individuals who request counseling are offered up to sixteen (16) individual 50 minute sessions. The needs of each client and completion of all 16 individual sessions may not be indicated for all. There is a one-time $20 administrative fee for counseling, however that fee can be waived or paid in installments.
