The Feel Well Empowerment Center started as a mental health agency that serves primarily children, families and persons with anxiety and depression. We found through expansion of our clinical skills into mindfulness and yoga movement; that it was an effective treatment modality for decreasing maladaptive symptoms. All ages also responded very well to art therapy and as a result we now offer The Feel Well as a community based supplement to the Therapeutic services we already offer at Fields Family Counseling Services.
