All Options Counseling Service

For many years, Colorado RCRC has offered all-options counseling for women and girls in the midst of a decision regarding their reproductive lives, or in the aftermath of an abortion procedure. Usually, if the caller has a preference, we try to match her up with someone from her faith tradition or one very similar, including the Jewish tradition and the Buddhist faith.  The counseling is provided free of charge by clergy from many denominations and faiths who are trained by RCRC in even-handed, caller-focused counseling on these topics, and who are aware of resources within the community for adoption and other specific needs.  Most of the counseling is now provided by telephone, and we have quite rapid response times (usually within 24 hours of a request.)  All of our counseling is anonymous and confidential.

It is unusual to get a call from someone who may be experiencing emotional upset long after a procedure, but should this occur, we take these calls also, and attempt to help a woman to process her feelings.

We do not offer couples counseling per se, but once in a while, a caller has a significant other who wishes to be included in the counseling. If this is clearly the desire of the woman calling, we may accommodate this request. We usually offer one session, as we find that most of the time, this will be sufficient.

We do not make referrals to specific providers nor are we funded by any specific denomination.  We encourage you to take advantage of this compassionate, nonjudgmental resource.
