Sexual assault silences. It silences the perpetrator because he (or she) denies the assault. It silences the victim because the perpetrator not only robbed the victim of parts of their sexuality but also silenced the voice that no one heard during the attack. It silences law enforcement because most victims remain silent after the attack.
Our faith-based approach is anything but silent. We purposefully empower sexual assault survivors by breathing the voice of hope into victims of sexual assault by providing page-turning resources, top-notch survivor coaching, and facilitating life-changing workshops where survivors can safely go through the process of healing, recovery, and restoration.
We do this by walking and coaching survivors through the silent pain, shame, and helplessness of the assault with our proven voice activated techniques. Our faith-based speech empowerment workshops walks each participant through the emotional and spiritual processing that needs to take place after the attack and into their newfound outspoken purpose where they regain their sexual identity, recoup their sexual rights and reclaim the innocence of the sexual purity that was stolen.
We also partner with law firms with our consultancy and survivor coaching services. Throughout the prosecutorial stage, victims get lost in the mental and logistical preparation needed for court proceedings. And though such preparation is both needed and commendable, victims should also be able to safely transition out of their role as a rape victim and into their newfound strength as a sexual assault survivor. Because Lavinia has made the transition and went on to fight legislatively to end rape kit backlog, she now provides pre- and aftercare coaching for sexual assault victims actively pursuing prosecution.

Lavinia comes alongside her clients to brainstorm, provide information, and examine potential decisions. A therapist can do all of these things, but they often also need to intervene at a deeper level to direct care, prescribe behavior and make choices on behalf of their client. A coach never takes that much control over a client’s life. Guide and encourage, yes. Command direction, never.
