I first came to The Refuge Center to get some help for my teenage son who was facing difficult challenges and crucial life choices. Not only did my son make a great deal of progress, but I also realized that doing some intensive work on my own issues was imperative. With my counselors help, and the use of EMDR, I was able to face the deep seated wounds that I had held from an extremely traumatic childhood. I overcame the fear, anxiety, and intimidation that held me back for a lifetime. For this I am deeply grateful. The changes that I am experiencing are wonderful. I finally feel like I am becoming free to be the person I was always meant to be.
