we provide vital mental health services for women regardless of ability to pay


starting WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 12:30 pm. we will reopen MONDAY DECEMBER 30, 9 am.



The Mission of The Women's Initiative is to provide effective counseling services, social support and education to empower women to transform challenging life situations into opportunities for renewed well-being and personal growth.


The Women’s Initiative is a leader in providing innovative, effective evidence-based mental health care to women, regardless of their financial means.


We believe every woman has a natural capacity for healing that once uncovered and directed, results in better mental and physical health. We believe it is critical to address each woman’s unique emotional, physical and spiritual needs.
