Empower Counseling created the Open Empowerment Counseling Program to provide quality, accessible counseling to meet the needs of clients seeking mental health services that are uninsured and low income.
There is no charge or insurance required for the service.
Open Empowerment Counseling services will be provided by a skilled Masters Level Graduate Student for the duration of their internship.
