Abortion is an issue that has become so politicized that often what falls through the cracks are those who may need to talk with someone about their experience. While not everyone who has an abortion deals with adverse affects, there are those who have physical complications or who struggle with unexpected emotions.
Hands of Hope Tucson uniquely offers specialized counseling for women and men who have experienced abortion. This is available through one-on-one or couples counseling with our on-staff Masters Level counselor who is Certified in Reproductive Grief Care. We also host a peer-led support group.
Our counselor will give clients the opportunity to talk about their experience in a private and safe environment. She will provide clients with tools to help them process their emotions and will help them be more effective in communicating their needs to their partner, family and friends. When faith and Christian values are important to our clients, she will help them make sense of their abortion experience from a spiritual and Biblical perspective.
No matter how long ago the abortion occurred, if you and/or your partner are dealing with difficult emotions afterwards, you are not alone! Hands of Hope Tucson provides private, confidential, and non-judgmental support to help you process through your experience.
