We recognize that healing does not look the same for everyone, and that it in itself is a never-ending process that can be lifelong. We support trauma-informed healing techniques and interventions which address the aspects of physical, sexual, spiritual and emotional health and well-being.



Healing is a process. DC Anti-Violence Center, through the DC Center for the LGBT Community, offers free counseling sessions for those in need. To schedule an appointment, please contact Sarah Lawson at sarahl@dccenter.org. To learn more about the DC Center's Behavioral Health offerings, click here
