Looking back, this program has saved my life. I came here broken, fragmented, hopeless. I was not alive - I hadn't truly been living in years. I was scraping by on a thin layer of intoxicated existence hoping each day I'd not wake up the next. I was smothered by my past and my depression. I floated in a world wed somewhere between a battered childhood and a belligerent dunkard whimsy of my mid 20s. There was no hope in my spirit, if I ever had one. I felt I had lost my soul so long ago. I am leaving here uplifted. I found my human experience and myself. I have felt surrender, peace, mirth, love, joy, hope, pride, laughter. I have also felt shame and guilt, and the release of those weights. I see a future where I used to see an abyss. I am so thankful and grateful to have come here. Not only were my needs and goals met and salved, but I am leaving here knowing I can take care of my own needs and that as I continue to do as such, all my goals will fall into allignment.
This is a very rare gem. I couldn't have asked for a better staff and environment. They saved my life. The woman's community is amazing. So supportive, I have friends for life. Psycho drama was my favorite class. It helped me process so much that I needed to deal with all the trauma that I have had in my life. I can't express the gratitude I feel towards my primary therapist Lana she helped me deal with everything I needed to deal with. Also, Caroline is amazing and has a true gift that just keeps on giving. They both are miracle workers. The RA's were also amazing. They were our on-call therapist. I couldn't have asked for a more amazing group of counselors. They really know exactly what they are doing. They knew exactly what to say and when to say it. They have seen me through some of my hardest, saddest and happiest times of my life and I am truly blessed to have had met and known them. I will forever be grateful.
