The Door is Open Counseling Center opened their doors in November 2013 to an Intensive Outpatient Program, A Safe Place for Women to Heal. A gender specific program for women who have recently experienced trauma or who are ready to explore feelings about past trauma.

At A Safe Place for Women to Heal, we promote recovery by addressing the individuals’ physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual growth using a wide range of educational, practical, and experiential modalities. We strive to help women build resiliency through strengthening their relationship with the present moment. We help them to process past trauma and to acknowledge and change maladaptive behaviors that may be affecting daily life only when they are ready to do so in a safe and healthy way. A Safe Place provides time limited treatment to adult women (18+) in an outpatient setting with an emphasis on the individual needs of the whole woman. It is intended as a transition back to the community for women discharging from higher levels of care or when weekly outpatient treatment isn’t enough. Our program design reflects this philosophy.
