I had a great experience here with an Intern therapist, Amanda, (Mar.-Jul2015), but she graduated so I had to transition to another therapist. I was put on a waiting list for another therapist in mid-July before Amanda left. However, I never got a call so I followed-up in mid-August and was told that they could not find my application at all. I was told that I would have to reapply and be put on the approx. 30 day waiting list. I reported how unprofessional this was and after finally reaching a supervisor was given a therapist the next week.
However, the therapist I was given turned out to be an extremely invalidating intern and ended up betraying my trust by misunderstanding info. I gave her. After, leaving me in crisis she never contacted me again for a follow-up visit or to check on me.
She had a few good suggestions at my initial visit but never followed up on anything she said she'd check on for me.
I don't know how this place is funded but the funders might want to take a 2nd look at the quality they are getting from the staffing there.
I am farely new to the Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan, but have already experienced many good things from this organization. Last year I was diagnosed withStage III breast cancer, and had undergone surgery, chemo, and radiation. I am self employed and have catastrophic insurance, and am currently struggling with finances and anxiety. The WCofSEM provided me with a counselor at a reduced co pay, and scheduled me for weekly appointments to help aid me in mental and emotional support. Kara has been wonderful to me and very helpful. She has provided sources to help me seek financial aid with my copays medications, and how to practice cognitive therapy. I am very lucky to have discovered this wonderful organization. I hope that other's that are in simuliar situations as I am are lucky enough to discover the WCofSEM.
Very helpful people. They helped me to find job and get back on track after divorce.
The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan changed my life, and it also changed how I view and treat other women. I felt like I could trust everyone from the counselor who helped me to the receptionist who greeted me every week. In order to do the work that they do you have to be extremely devoted to you job and to the people that you help. The Women's center goes above and beyond devotion.
