Project H.E.A.L. (Women's trauma recovery & support)


Project H.E.A.L. (Hope...Empathy...Acceptance...Love) is a safe place to unburden yourself, find support, and develop relationships with other women in similar situations.

The group is led by a woman who gets you, because she’s been there, but has also received incredible hope and healing and wants you to experience that, too. You don’t have to be a Christian to attend the group, but the group focuses on biblical principles and building strong relationships with Jesus Christ and other people as critical parts of the healing journey. If you are not a Christian, you will NOT be bullied or beat up on. We deeply believe that every human being is worthy of honor and respect because we each bear the Image of God in us. We will always strive for you to be treated with honor and respect in all that we do.

Project H.E.A.L. meets by video on Thursdays from 7-8:30 PM. Meetings are only $35, and scholarships may be available for women in financial crisis.

Group Therapist

The four counselors and coaches of The Center for Mighty Marriages & Families (CMMF) believe that every human being is made in the Image of God and, as such, is worthy of honor and respect solely because of that. We strive so that every interaction a client has with someone at CMMF leaves that person feeling honored and respected. Because of the often very difficult things we help with, not every client leaves with a smile on their face, but they do leave feeling like they're not alone in dealing with what they are facing in life and/or relationships and that they are honored and respected by the person they have allowed to come alongside them to help.

We have a variety of education and experiences that allow us to help a wide variety of people who are hurting. One of the highest goals all of our counselors and coaches have is to "work ourselves out of a job with every client." We work very hard to get every client to the point that they say, "I just don't need you any more. I'll take it from here!"
