    Nicole H., 46 – Female. December 2017

    I came to The Center to 1) break the depression funk/cycle I had been in for several months and learn to identify value in myself again, 2) strengthen my faith in Christ, and 3) learn to love my body and address years of abusive relationship between body and self.

    My experience with the treatment team: Blessed! I could not be more grateful for this team. I feel as though they truly care about me and my well-being and that they are cheering me on. They are intentional and have given me what I needed when I needed it which was not always what I wanted to hear but certainly what I needed to hear. The staff here is EXCEPTIONAL and truly a gift from God.

    I am grateful and thankful. Thank you!

    I came here to get my life in order and stay off drugs so I can have a career. I loved the admission team. They were very kind. The treatment was absolutely amazing.

    Thank you so much for helping me. I really needed this and it was the best experience they I’ve had with treatment. Thank you.

    Neal, 40 – Male. November 2017

    My first impression of The Center was excellent. My call with the admissions team was very organized, professional and engaging. I had high expectation of The Center (which were met in abundance) after working with them. My primary concern before coming was to understand what was wrong with me and why all previous therapy programs didn’t seem to work. (Which I now understand that these previous programs were only attempting to treat symptoms – not the root (not to be confused with the cause) of my issues).

    My one-on-ones were right on the mark. Between the Biblical counseling received, the HEALS program, and the classes (apart from DBT- especially CBT, Boundaries and Faith) I now believe the root of my bringing issues was that I did not have any self-worth apart from my performance in the given role I was fulfilling at any given time (Husband, Father, Employee, Soldier, Student, etc.) and have a whole different schema through which I am viewing life, myself and those with whom and am relating. Though I find the DBT a critical part of the program, my comments above were with regard to my healing – I believe DBT is going to be critical to master going forward as it provides skills that I did not learn during my emotional development thus far.

    The medical team was excellent – very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Completely exceeded my expectations (as I was only expecting Mental Health Treatment), especially the DNA test ordered and thoroughly explained – answered a few lingering questions as to why previous psychiatric medication treatment have had a radically opposite effect than my psychiatric provider at home intended – I hope to gain more insights as I study the results of the DNA test more.

    my entire treatment team to be excellent teachers/group facilitators (the classes tended to shift back and forth between class and group therapy) as they are not only very knowledgeable, able to communicate that knowledge in a understandable way – but are highly skilled at knowing when to shift into group-therapy mode as needed and facilitate this aspect without getting side tracked.

    Aside from the whole person approach and DBT, which I think was key – if I had to pick one aspect that was most beneficial to me, it would be the group therapy. Though the information and skills that the program is designed to impart was integral to my overall experience here, I don’t think I would have been able to apply those well, if at all, without the testimonies of my fellow and the experiences that they have shared.

    I give my strongest recommendation to The Center for anyone considering treatment.

    Julie, 49 – Female. October 2017

    I came the The Center because I of my broken marriage. I had given up after suffering years of emotional abuse and I was completely depleted. Every morning when I would wake up and I would realize I was awake I would began to cry realizing I would somehow have to make it until bedtime home alone and single with 2 teenagers that I desperately loved but had no way to feel I was adequate to handle anything. I had just been shamed for 4 months by my church and I was despairing isolated and filled with darkness and shame. I came to The Center because the admission’s individual with whom I spoke, their words were so life giving that I was hoping God would help me here.

    The admissions team was loving, compassionate, encouraging, patient, gentle and wise. The admissions director truly infused hope into my heart and made me feel so valuable and gave me peace. She spoke words of life to me and she truly knocked some shame off of me that was trying to crush me. She believed for me things I could not yet believe. She prayed for me and sent me scripture. She helped give me a countdown that helped me stay focused on getting here. The times I would be filled with fear and panic and worry and write incredibly long and anxious emails she always lovingly and gently let me know that she understood and she comforted me and really each interaction she reduced shame, infused hope and peace into my heart! Another member of the admission team’s loving and kind encouragement to bring my guitar was a HUGE blessing and a true part of my healing!! This dynamic duo lets the kindness and gentleness of Christ shine through them so brightly and truly helped guide me here!

    You helped save my life, my marriage and you have forever changed my life and my marriage!! My children will be loved so much more deeply and fully in healthy ways. I know God will use this to break Generational curses and sins in our families!! Dr. Jantz forever thank you and may God pour HIS mighty favor on you and every single person who works here and walks through your doors!! Come to Charlotte NC and do seminars!! We will help! You all have given me comfort and love from God and I will take this and go and comfort myself, my marriage my precious children and the people God brings though my life. Thank you for my life. I will go and live a VERY meaningful life with purpose!!

    Shonda, 45 – Female. August 2017

    Before coming to the Center, I was in a such a deep, dark place of depression and having suicidal thoughts and I didn’t have the tools to climb back out of it on my own.

    I want to highlight the admissions team because made me feel like The Center was the right place for me. That was such a quantum decision for me which I did not think I would ever make. And they helped me make that life-changing decision for which I am so thankful.

    I did my intake with the admissions lead and he was great. He was very calm and supportive and answered all of my questions. I called him back a couple of times with questions and he was very prompt in returning my phone calls and calming my nerves. I also talked to a second admissions team member who was wonderful. She was my go-to person after I decided I was coming to the Center and answered all of my questions about what to expect, what to bring, general questions, etc. They were both great to work with and were so nice.

    My overall experience with the treatment team was excellent. Everybody I worked with and interacted with from the front desk to the clinicians to the therapists were helpful, friendly, and invested in my recovery. I felt like everybody cared about me and everybody at the Center. Everybody listened to me and was very genuine in wanting to help me. I am forever grateful for your love and help. I am a changed person and excited about the future again. Thank you.

    Anthony, 47 – Male. July 2017

    Edmonds is an ideal setting for this facility, the city is very welcoming and inviting and clients don’t feel like they stand out. It is really wonderful to have a place like this to heal. Everyone here on my team and leading the classes I had were excellent. I want to commend the staff here for their patience and ability to provide the space for people to share.

    Just an amazing program that any person struggling should have the opportunity to experience.

    Robin, 33 – Female. July 2017

    I think I had the BEST team. My primary was fantastic. She is so knowledgeable and incorporates a ton of resources and approaches into her treatment. She was so compassionate and understanding of me through my difficult times and made me feel supported and heard. She pushed me so much on self-esteem issues, an area in which I was quite resistant, and it absolutely transformed my thinking. 

    I gained SO much from being immersed in the whole program, particularly the DBT, CBT, and individual sessions. I have done other therapies and programs in the past, and nothing has worked as well as this in changing my thinking and behaviors from the inside out. I am extremely grateful and had a very, very positive experience at The Center

    Raylene, 44 – Female. June 2017

    My review is “Exceptional”!!

    The admissions team was incredible. I felt heard, understood and like what I needed was valid. They were very accommodating. The first day orientation session was great. Very informative, it was well explained and gave all the right information. The treatment team was incredible. My primary was a God send. I have never felt more understood or valued in my entire life than speaking to him in my one on ones. The whole-person approach is really impressive.

    Everything intertwines. In my second week things started to click and I could see why this type of approach is the most beneficial to complete healing. Overall, this is an exceptional program and I recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    Melissa, 38 – Female. June 2017

    My goals were to be able to control or have tools to help my anxiety, panic attacks and depression. I needed help in dealing with grief, loss, guilt and shame as well as relationship issues dealing with emotional and verbal abuse. I also needed help with withdrawals from Ativan.

    The admissions team was great, they got me in immediately which I was hoping for. They also were able to get me my own room with bathroom. It was nice to know that they considered my weakened immune system and inability to walk long distances to get me a place close to the center. They were very caring and detailed to get me into the right classes as well as a team I could really relate to.

    My primary was so caring and really wanted to spend the time to go through everything that I needed without me feeling rushed. She even went the extra mile to bring flower petals, walk down to the pier (in heels 🙂 with me and do a little memorial for my pets. She knew all their names and helped me find the teaching in each ones life and passing. It meant the world to me and I am forever grateful. I really appreciated the fact that I had help 6 days a week, pretty much from 9-5 and quite a few one on ones. I was extremely satisfied with the program.

    Doris, 56 – Female. May 2017

    My primary goals in coming to The Center were to address some long standing emotional hurts. 

    I loved each of my treatment facilitators. Would not change one…but overall it was great having each of them as group counselors!

    Continue to love and transform God’s people…

    Mary, 55 – Female. May 2017

    My admissions team was reassuringly helpful…received answers quickly which helped with decision making while under duress.

    My treatment team at The Center was amazing! Everyone was kind, gentle, understanding and provided appropriate and heartfelt guidance covering emotional, spiritual, health and relational assistance; adding thought provoking questions to help me think, value myself and evaluate my situations and experiences.

    The Center’s holistic approach is what I was looking for as life experience has revealed just how complicated we humans are. I do feel this has helped me come to a point of Hope more quickly and clearly than I had even initially hoped.

    Anna, 26 – Female. May 2017

    My admissions team were very thorough and helpful throughout the whole process. Each time I called, all my questions were answered and everyone seemed happy to help. I never felt like I was bothering anyone with my multitude of questions.

    By coming to The Center, I wanted to address my main issue of depression and anxiety. I wanted to leave with tools to better cope with sever depression and anxiety. I was looking for a way to regroup and get my life back on track and out of the dark hole I was living in at the time. I wanted to learn how to love and accept myself for the person I am. My side issue was to deal with my alcohol abuse.

    The treatment team overall was great! Everyone for the most part was extremely helpful and available when needed.
