The Sexual Assault Navigator Therapist is the first point of contact at Avalon Sexual Assault Centre. They provide immediate crisis response services to callers, handle walk-in requests for support, and provide up to 5 counselling sessions. The Navigator works specifically with clients with marginalized identities who face additional barriers to accessing services after experiencing sexualized violence. Like all our counsellors, the Navigator provides support services that are trauma informed/specific and culturally appropriate to women and trans individuals, 16 years and older, who have experienced sexualized violence. The Navigator also works to support other organizations in referring individuals to Avalon, and to help community members access the network of support available to survivors of sexual assault.
