San woman in cafeNow my dream has come. My life is peaceful and serene. I can spread my wings to fly. I am no longer a victim. I am a survivor.” – SafeHarbor client, 2011

If you’re a victim of domestic violence but do not want or need a place to stay, Safe Harbor can give you the same help we offer to our resident shelter clients. Our counseling services are available to all victims and survivors of domestic violence. Our services are for women and men who have experienced emotional, mental, physical, sexual or economic abuse in their relationships. Whether you are currently in an abusive relationship, thinking about leaving an abusive relationship or dealing with the after-effects of domestic violence, we can help.

We offer both individual and group counseling opportunities. In Greenville County, we offer an 8-week education group, discussing dynamics and issues that a victim of abuse encounters during an abusive relationship. This group provides an understanding of what domestic violence is and how this issue operates in a relationship. The group also offers emotional support in a group setting.

All services are confidential and include safety planning, domestic violence education and emotional support. Our counselors and advocates will help you to identify what type of services best fit your needs, which may include immediate crisis intervention, case management and counseling. All of our counselors and advocates are specialists on the issue of domestic violence and can offer community advocacy and referrals. A victim of abuse can benefit from Safe Harbor’s counseling services while simultaneously receiving other forms of counseling and support as well.

Our counseling offices are accessible to each of the four counties in our service area – Greenville, Anderson, Oconee and Pickens.

All of our services are free of charge. Call 1.800.291.2139 to inquire about our counseling services and to seek help.
