Advocacy & Consultation


Our Advocacy and Consultation Services are designed to offer support, strategies, information, tools and guidance regarding social-sexual matters. Just a few examples include: concerning sexual behaviors, sexual or relational trauma, the need for sexuality education, consent and boundaries, and healthy relationships.

While we can work with anyone, we specialize in working with people who experience intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, neurodiversity, a traumatic brain injury, sexually maladaptive behaviors, mental health issues, and more! Our clients range in age from 3 years to 93 years.

We also work with the people who support them, including: parents and families, foster care providers, case management staff, direct support professionals, special education teachers, and medical and mental health professionals.

If you have questions, or would like to schedule a consultation, please contact Cara at 503-832-0787 or
