Counseling and intervention center for women* – all individuals who identify as female – fleeing domestic violence.

The risk of becoming a victim of violence and abuse is much higher in familiar, intimate social settings than in public.

Leaving an abusive relationship is a difficult step; feeling shame and fearing not being able to escape from the perpetrator are serious obstacles to overcome.

We offer counseling for women* looking to develop a violence-free outlook on their lives.
