The Cambridge Women's Center is a physical and digital community space open to anyone for whom woman is a meaningful identifier or lived experience. We offer a safe space for learning, emotional support, empathy, and empowerment through self-determination.
Our understanding of the terms woman and feminism is intersectional, and we strive to create a community that is inclusive and actively working towards justice for Black, Indigenous, People of Color, LGBTQIA+, those with disabilities and/or mental illness, folks experiencing housing insecurity and other Powerful Groups (both national and international) targeted for oppression.

WOMEN'S MENTAL HEALTH COLLECTIVE
We are experienced, interactive, feminist therapists who believe that the therapeutic relationship must be compassionate, trustworthy and genuine. We emphasize that therapy is an active, collaborative process of working toward self-acceptance and change. Insight, tolerance of feeling and specific behavioral strategies may all be useful toward this end.
We work with people experiencing depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and conflicts in relationships. We have developed expertise in the treatment of trauma, including especially the widespread effects of violence against women, parenting challenges and difficulties in the workplace.
Throughout the therapeutic process our focus is on helping clients identify strengths and understand the sources of their pain. Equally importantly, we support the development and recognition of their resourcefulness, resilience and competence.
