I am working toward my MSW degree at the University of Michigan. The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan has been a great place to learn how to do therapy. It is an incredibly supportive environment, and everyone who works there works incredibly hard to serve TWC's clients well. It's one of the only places in the area people can get counseling on a *true* sliding scale (many people are priced out of sliding scales that bottom out at $40). TWC continually gets clients calling for counseling because our reputation within the professional community grows; other social workers I know smile when I say I work for TWC and tell me that many of their clients they've referred to TWC were greatly helped. It's a truly amazing place.
