FREE Sessions

Due to COVID-19, we are conducting small group sessions to replace individual sessions.

In response to the needs of our community, we are expanding our services. Tuesday and Wednesday 4-week sessions, starting in April, are now open to both breast cancer survivors and women experiencing post traumatic stress from the events of 2020. 

Sessions are conducted in April, May and September on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Little Creek Ranch, 2900 Siskiyou Blvd, Ashland, OR.
