Individual, Couple, and Family Counseling
Verity offers counseling services to trauma survivors as well as their significant others, friends and family, who may be struggling with their own reactions. Services are provided by supervised MFT Trainees and Registered Interns who are working toward licensure and are extensively trained in trauma. They are also certified by the State of California as Sexual Assault Counselors. They are supervised and trained by Sharon Bergeron, who is a licensed MFT. Sixteen sessions are offered on a sliding fee scale.
Sessions are held in a safe, supportive atmosphere. Anything you tell us is confidential within the agency. This means we will not tell anyone that you are being seen by us and we will not tell anyone what you have told us. If you request that we converse with someone else, you will be asked to sign a permission form before we release information to anyone outside the agency.
Our interns and trainees have intensive training and supervision in Trauma and in Rape Trauma Syndrome. We understand the social aspects and psychological symptoms of dealing with trauma and surviving sexual assault as well as how all other aspects of life are affected.
Counseling sessions are by appointment. Call the Counseling Services Manager at 707-545-7270, extension 14, for more information. Leave your name and telephone number. It may take up a week for our team to get back to you; please don’t hesitate to utilize our Crisis Line (707-545-7273) in the meantime.
