Counseling & advocacy

It has helped me understand myself and move forward, letting go of my awful past.  The facilitators were such sensitive people, making us feel safe and not judged.  I was able to set new goals and share experiences with others.  -- Support Group Member

Counseling services

The Women’s Center provides individual and support group counseling for victims of domestic and sexual violence as well as those dealing with other major life crises. Services are also available for family members and significant others.

Counseling services provide critical intervention, opportunity for healing, and assistance in the development of client-centered safety plans which minimize risk and danger level. Support group counseling helps to lessen feelings of isolation, self-blame and denial. In groups, clients are offered the opportunity to learn from each other and to express and better understand their own experience. Learn more about our Support Groups.

The Center is open 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Some evening individual counseling appointments are available upon request. All services and programs are free and confidential.

Advocacy services

Advocacy services are provided on both an individual and system level. Through the advocacy program the client learns to navigate medical, criminal and legislative systems. The Center's advocacy work extends to legislative, criminal justice, medical and educational institutions to obtain changes in laws, procedures and quality of response.

The Women's Center has advocates housed at Danbury Superior Court located at 146 White Street in Danbury, Connecticut. Our Court Advocates work closely with domestic violence and sexual assault victims by providing information about the law, the court process and other legal options available to crime victims in Connecticut. Advocates are available to discuss safety planning strategies and to connect clients with local resources in order to support the individual and their family's needs. The Court Advocate office is open Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. To speak to a Women's Center Court Advocate, or to make an appointment, please contact our satellite office at 203-207-8701 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
