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.

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
