Los Angeles Family Therapy
We are pleased to announce our partnership with Los Angeles Family Therapy with the sole purpose of changing lives! At the 2016 Amber Rose SlutWalk, we jumpstarted this effort with the “Share YOUR Voice” campaign – encouraging people to share how they have overcome slut shaming, derogatory labeling, and sexual assault. Amber Rose choose five (5) individuals to receive 4 therapy sessions to continue their journey to healing with Los Angeles Family Therapy. We were overwhelmed by how many people signed up and wanted to share their story.
Given the response of this campaign, The Amber Rose Foundation has decided to continue this effort and take donations throughout the year to continue to raise money and offer free therapy. Your donation goes directly to support this initiative!
The Amber Rose Foundation partnered with Los Angeles Family Therapy (LAFT) because they understand there are many reasons to begin therapy, and there is no cookie-cutter form of treatment that works for everyone. They offer multiple therapists from various backgrounds and specialties. LAFT knows the therapy process can often be a daunting and intimidating process; often the descriptive terms fix, broken, embarrassed, private, personal, and even "crazy" are words associated with therapy or when contemplating seeking a therapist. At LAFT, the key elements they strive to embody are free of judgement, support, and an overall concern for each members’ well-being.
Attending therapy is a personal and private choice. LAFT honors every client's privacy by providing complete confidentiality and thorough assessment criteria. Often, there is a strong stigma or undertone, which prevents, detours, and or impedes the joining of therapy. While LAFT remains sensitive to everyone's process, the essential staples they value are taking the time to listen, understand, interpret, and help every client unfold and/or identify through a very personal and individual process uniquely tailored to provide support, guidance, and care for any reason the need for therapy may enter your life.
