“Over the course of several months of counseling, I went from being
overwhelmed to feeling empowered and enjoying life again. I am now
living a better version of my life than I would have ever thought
possible. I am forever grateful to the WEWC for recognizing and serving
this need within our community by offering highly specialized resources
in an incredibly compassionate and supportive environment.”
“I’ve gone to a therapist before and never felt that I really got
anything out of it because I was never comfortable enough to be
completely honest. Not the case here, the staff at the WEWC were very
easy to talk to…In just a short time, I was able to learn techniques
that helped me deal with my anxiety and have been feeling so much
better—totally worth my 45 minute drive.”
“I had a really great experience with the WEWC…All of the staff were so
caring and after just one visit, I felt less anxious and knew it was the
right place for me. I am so thankful for my experience there and the
important service t hey are providing for women.”
