Happy Women’s History Month from Womencare! Take a moment to give the important women in your life their flowers, and challenge yourself this month to give flowers to a woman you may not know. Radical, antiracist feminism requires us to reimagine our community by expanding resources and conversations to include people who may not look like you or have the same privilege as you. Celebrate all women. Protect all women.
“Without community, there is no liberation.”
– Audrey Lorde

As we continue to navigate the pandemic, we will continue to provide secure teletherapy options while some of our therapists begin to resume in person sessions. We welcome your call. Read more.
Womencare unequivocally stands against the violence, oppression, and injustice perpetrated on Black and Brown people by White individuals and institutions. The intergenerational infliction of trauma continues to do harm. Racism kills. Racism kills by the systems of oppression designed to keep Black and Brown people down. Read more.

Specializing in the relational treatment of trauma, Womencare Counseling & Training Center offers individual, relationship and family counseling aimed at restoring life’s meaning and the capacity to form healthy relationships.
Womencare, founded by Laurie Kahn in 1978, is committed to encouraging and sustaining healthy relationships with self, others, family and community. Collaboration, mutuality and careful pacing are key to our relational approach. We welcome people of all races, ethnic groups, religions, genders, sexual orientations and abilities.*

“Trauma is hard to speak and hard to hear. But, stories unshared don’t disappear; they return in relationships silently taking prisoners. Telling your story to a compassionate witness, in contrast, can be healing.”
