When it comes to counseling, you have a choice of whether or not to use health insurance.

Are you looking for an extra layer of confidentiality? Have an impossibly high deductible? Can’t afford your co-pay? Unable to find anyone who accepts straight Medicaid?  We can work with you!

Our Guiding Principles

Self-determination

We believe that everyone wants the opportunity to shape their our own life stories. We offer opportunities for women to explore, challenge, and make decisions about their futures in an atmosphere of mutual respect.

Confidence

We encourage intelligent, courageous, resilient, creative, and resourceful women to discover and amplify their inherent strengths.


Connections

We bring together women and resources to construct a continuum of support. Relationships nurture our desire to belong and promote an ongoing sense of integrity and well‐being.

Change

We work with women to distinguish individual problems from systemic problems, and to carry out individual and social change. Each of us actively seeks skills and resources that enable us to adapt to a complex and changing world.


Our Vision

 

Mission Statement
