“The core experiences of psychological trauma is disempowerment and disconnection from others. Recovery, therefore, is based upon the empowerment of the survivor and the creation of new connections. Recovery can take place only within the context of relationships; it cannot occur in isolation.”
Judith Herman, "Trauma & Recovery"
YWCA Golden Gate Silicon Valley’s mission is supported through the deeper healing of trauma with a focus on empowerment, equity, awareness, and unconditional positive regard.

Therapy sessions are typically weekly and last 50 minutes, however it will depend on your unique needs and situation. We have locations in San Jose and Sunnyvale.
