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.”

-Laurie Kahn

Dear Colleagues,

Happy New Year and take a deep breath. Be proud of the tools you’ve picked up to allow you to endure, and at moments thrive, another year amid a global pandemic. It’s okay to name the fact that we are not the same people that we were at the beginning of 2020.

This article, The Fragile Frontier, was written with you in mind. I was inspired by our discussions, collective experiences and the many stories you have shared with me throughout the pandemic. I dedicate this to the many clinicians who have learned and been changed by these unprecedented times. Our minds, fears, hopes and dreams have all been significantly altered, but we still see you. We see you figuring out how to show up for yourselves and your clients every single day and it is appreciated. We are the midwives to our clients’ untold stories and as storytellers themselves. Please take a moment to read Fragile Frontier and share your thoughts with me, and the article can be found at If you wish to view this from a mobile device, please view

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse, and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.

- Archbishop Desmond Tutu
October 7, 1931 - December 26, 2021

May we live up to the gift of his legacy.
