Regarding COVID-19: Womencare recognizes the many difficult, traumatic and compromising impacts of the coronavirus on our individual lives, relationships, sense of security and mental health and well-being.  We are currently providing secure teletherapy, easily accessed from your home.  We continue to be a 100% teletherapy practice at this time.  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.
Womencare is proud to be offering free workshops during COVID-19 that help support three local non-profits.  If you are able, join us in making a difference by donating to one of these organizations:


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.*

*Womencare is located in an ADA accessible building.

“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

For those who celebrate, Happy Hanukkah!
1 week ago

We have to break the cycle of hurting children to raise children. Hurting children grow up to believe that children deserve to be hurt, that they MUST be hurt to be raised well. And thus generational pain is passed along. But, sometimes, hurting children grow up and recognize the destructive pattern. They do the work to heal themselves and to find ways to raise their children peacefully. And the generational pain cycle is broken. This is our time, our chance to heal ourselves and to heal the future. Let’s choose the path of peace, my friends. Let’s break the cycle, not the child. Let’s change the world, one little heart at a time.🌎
