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 each 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, in order to continue to raise money and offer free therapy. Your donation does directly to support this initiative!
The Amber Rose Foundation partnered with Los Angeles Family Therapy (LAFT) because they understand that there are many different reasons to begin therapy, and that there is no cookie-cutter form of treatment that works for everyone. They offer multiple therapists from various backgrounds and specialties. LAFT makes knows that the therapy process can often be a daunting and intimidating process, very often the descriptive terms fix, broken, embarrassed, private, personal, and even "crazy" are words that are 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 and every members’ well-being.
Attending therapy is a personal and private choice at which LAFT honors every client's privacy by providing complete confidentiality and thorough assessment criteria. Very 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 each and every client unfold and or identify through a very personal and individual process which is uniquely tailored to provide support, guidance, and care for any one reason at which the need for therapy may enter your life.
