Ruth’s Safe Haven takes a wholistic approach to healing. We know the effects of trauma long outlast the experience itself. Trauma lives on in the mind, body and spirit. Our healing approach addresses trauma from each of these angles coupled with traditional healing therapies. We engage the body through movement, the mind through creative expression and the spirit through group sharing experience.
In a safe and nurturing environment, modalities we may use include creative arts therapy, guided writing, body work, yoga and meditation, music, dance, movement, play and mindfulness. Our goal is to increase the understanding of the effects of trauma and the use of integrated trauma-informed wellness models to improve quality of life for survivors.
Our services are free of charge and provide the type of long-term solutions which break the cycle of violence for women and children.
