Women Helping Women at Rutgers
Women Helping Women at Rutgers developed a partnership with Women Helping Women,
a 39-year-old non-profit organization in New Jersey devoted to empowering women, girls
and teens to take control of their lives. While the original locations of Women Helping
Women have since closed their door, Women Helping Women at Rutgers continues to offer
services to women from throughout central New Jersey. Our women therapists provide
therapy and psychoeducation sessions to women of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions,
sexual orientations, nationalities, and physical abilities.
WHW History: https://brainyboroblog.com/tag/women-helping-women/
Women Helping Women at Rutgers offers individual, couple, family, and group therapy to
female-identified clients of all ages. Our therapies include a variety of evidence-based
practices that can help children, teens, and adults deal with issues related to domestic
violence, sexual abuse, divorce, depression, anxiety, loss, self-esteem, peer pressure,
relationships and addiction. While we do not accept insurance, our therapy services are
provided on a sliding scale based on the client’s current household income. We also are
able to help women find therapy outside of Women Helping Women, if we are not able to
help them directly for any reason.
Additionally WHW at Rutgers offers community consultation services. Our therapists are
able to come to your community organization and offer workshops and/or groups in a
multitude of areas impacting women’s wellness. For example, in the past, we have
facilitated community workshops on substance use and assertiveness skills in teen girls.
