Clinical Director

South Valley Services is a non-profit organization. Our mission is to provide safe shelter and supportive services to anyone experiencing psychological, physical, emotional, economic, or sexual abuse at home. South Valley Services’ programs aim to empower individuals and communities to recognize their self-worth and to develop the necessary skills to reach their greatest potential, contributing to the collective wellbeing of the community.

Our Clinical Department offers therapy services to survivors of sexual and domestic violence. They work with adults and children and can meet virtually or in person. This service is open to anyone in the community, meaning survivors do not need to be shelter residents to utilize therapy services.
