Hi all,
I would like to say hello and a little bit about why I'm here. I am rape crisis counselor, I am a female, and I want to do what I can to help create a safe, supportive space in the survivor movement for folks of all genders to get the help and support they need in their journey of recovery from violence. I am very honored to be welcomed into these forums, to learn and to add my voice to the chorus of support for all of the strong, brave men who are working to survive abuse. I recognize the absolute need to regard all survivors as deserving of support and able to heal, no matter their gender. Thank you all for your hard work and for letting me into this inspirational healing community.

Welcom, Jane!
Thanks for coming here.
Thanks for caring.
Hoping you find additional encouragement here to help support your efforts in our struggle.


We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9
