New Client Story at The Refuge Center for Counseling:
I thought I was content living with major depression and consistently straining to stay thin and to get thinner. Partially because I’d yet to find good therapy that I could afford (and frankly didn’t believe I deserved), but mostly because I’d grown comfortable within the sadness I had known for so long. Then one day I took a leap and called The Refuge Center, and my life changed forever. In around nine months my therapist and I have been able to unravel and begin to heal copious amounts of complex trauma. It hasn’t been a cake-walk, but every step I take is like giving my lungs more room to breathe, to feel alive again. Female, Age 20
