From our patients

“The entire atmosphere of the Women’s Emotional Wellness Center is so warm, comfortable and welcoming. I came here after the lowest and most stressful time of my life and felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. Everyone has been wonderful.”

“It was an incredible experience; I’ve learned a lot about myself, how to address feelings and became insightful of what I need to work on.”

“I really enjoyed IOP. It was so nice to have a safe space to talk about my issues, in a judgement free place. I would definitely recommend this to any woman who may need a little extra support.”

“This place saved my life.”

“The therapy, group support and educational materials along with the therapist’s guidance at each session made me feel like a valued person and that my life and wellness is important…this program saved my life, absolutely wonderful experience.”

“I look back to when I first came here and where I am now and am proud of how far I've come to be able to go about my day to day life without fear and depression I had.”

“IOP helped me come from a place of darkness, not wanting to live, not knowing how to stop racing thoughts, control fears, and anxiety (and panic) being sleep deprived, dealing with grief, loss of family, loss of job, loss of friendships and loss of self due to past trauma in childhood and adulthood… You all should feel very proud of yourselves you are saving lives.”

“Thank you all…I really feel like another person after completing the IOP. I feel like this has saved me! I hope I won't need to come back, but I feel comfortable knowing I have you guys to ‘rescue’ me if I ever need it. Thank you!”
