Counseling Services

The Counseling Department at the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center provides free, trauma-focused interventions for individuals directly hurt by interpersonal violence and their loved ones. Services are provided in our Fargo office; in Fargo, West Fargo and Moorhead high schools; and in various outreach locations in neighboring communities.

Through individual and group counseling, master’s-certified counselors serve children (ages 4 and up), adults and elders by educating about abuse and healthy versus unhealthy relationships, treating symptoms related to post-traumatic stress, processing the experiences and effects of abuse, and improving coping and emotion-regulation skills.
