The Nest’s Domestic Violence Counseling Program is designed to provide support to families dealing with domestic violence, both currently and in the past.

We counsel domestic violence victims in individual and group settings, and offer these services to Spanish-speaking clients.  We also offer a 10-session educational workshop, giving victims the opportunity to heal, learn to love themselves, and develop healthy relationships.

Our staff offers an ongoing support group for victims and survivors of intimate partner violence and works with children who have been exposed to domestic violence through art therapy.  The Nest provides the tools to assist in healing, as well as the skills for parenting children who have witnessed domestic violence.

The Nest also offers legal advocacy and representation in court with the emergency protective order process.
