At Vibrant Women Wellness Counseling (VWWC) our mission is to bring the good news of God to the brokenhearted, to set them free from their emotional and or other forms of bondage, thus we are guided by Isaiah chapter 61 verses 1-4.
Our goal is to support women as they go through life’s challenges. By addressing areas of mental, physical, and spiritual health, we work to strengthen women’s resilience amidst their challenges, to foster the development of vibrance in their lives.
Our staff are Christian believers that incorporate spirituality into their work. Using spirituality as a positive coping method is embraced and encouraged, reminding women of God’s love to help them persevere. However, while staff encourage the use of spirituality, they recognize that not every woman receiving services from VWWC may identify as Christian or desire to have spirituality addressed in their treatment, so women’s preferences are respected with regard to whether or not spirituality will be incorporated in their treatment.
We encourage women to focus upwards to develop hope in God that He is able to help them through whatever they encounter.
