LPC needed Pro-Bono for non-profit:   We are a non-profit surgery center who is dedicated solely to victims of female genital mutilation. We evaluate and perform life changing reconstructive surgery all free of charge to the victims. One of our services that we would like to continue to offer to our patients is psychological counseling. We have some patients who we believe would greatly benefit from some counseling since they have a lot of PTSD related to the mutilation. We had a Psychologist but she is not longer able to help us so I am hoping we can find a Licensed Professional Counselor who is willing to work on a pro-bono basis to continue offering this invaluable service to our victims.
