Testimonials

"My therapist at SAVA helped me feel safe. She has helped me understand that what happened to me was not my fault. She has helped my self-esteem and I feel more deserving of a happy life."
-SAVA Client, age 17

"I was embarrassed to call SAVA. I felt it was all my fault and I was ashamed. I had been 'stuffing' the pain away. I learned that I didn't deserve it and I happily reached my goals to live again, love myself, and love others. I am strong and I love life!
-SAVA Client, age 55
