    What were your primary goals in coming?My primary goals in coming were to work on managing/ending my depression and learning to control my stress and anxiety.
    What was your experience with your treatment team?My experience in treatment was amazing. I would never have imagined that I could come so far. When I came into treatment I just wanted to not feel so bad all the time, but as I’m leaving I have become happy and excited to live life. I had an amazing team of people who I felt genuinely cared about me and my treatment. I never felt like I was facing things alone.
    What was your experience with your medical team?My medical team was AWESOME. I had a great connection with everyone involved with my treatment, and I feel truly lucky that I was given such a wonderful group of people to help me in my recovery. They pushed me really hard, but never so far that I felt uncomfortable or angry with them. They are the reason I have come so far.
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?Sheila and Karen were particularly helpful to me. Sheila was the one who pushed me the hardest and kept forcing me to face reality and get out of my distorted thinking, I guess that is why she has a reputation as the “butt kicker.” Karen was extremely supportive of me as I faced everything, and she was always checking in to see how I was doing. I feel like she was really invested in my treatment.
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?I loved the cooking classes with Natalie, they were such a fun way to relax.
    Do you feel you have a continuation of care plan in place for your return home?Yes

    What were your primary goals in coming?To get help for depression, relationship issues and disordered eating habits.
    What was your experience with your treatment team?Absolutely wonderful. They are all very knowledgeable in their field, very sincere/compassionate, and very helpful in addressing needs.
    What was your experience with your medical team?Wonderful. They were instrumental in diagnosing health issues that were directly impacting my ability to “function” effectively physically as well as emotionally.
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?How does one choose from greatness! Each of the assigned members of my team (Shelley, Renee, Mike S.) contributed significantly to my recovery in unique ways; group leaders, such as Linda, included. I walked away from each session with something more to work on and process. Each of them has been instrumental in causing me to become aware of healthy patterns of thinking and how to apply them to foster healthy relationships with myself and others.
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?I loved how each aspect of health was addressed here…a “whole person” experience

    Please select the most critical issues addressed during your time at The Center.Communication Problems
    Please select the most critical issues addressed during your time at The Center.Grief and Loss
    What were your primary goals in coming?Learning how to not turn to suicidal behavior. Learn how to cope with depression and my anxiety. Understand and begin my recovery to chemical addiction. Start the process of forgiveness which will allow me to begin the process of moving forward from my past trauma. Being a spiritual path back to God.
    What was your experience with your treatment team?This was the first place, through all of my other inpatient & outpatient treatment centers or care, that I truly began to have hope. Instead of the basic, “lets talk about what happened and how you feel about it”, this was the first place that gave me the TOOLS that I have so desperately needed to find a better way to live. This is the first place where I was actually challenged to understand where my pain comes from and how to deal with life situations in a healthy way. This is the beginning of a long process but it gave me the jump start I needed and the tools to continue building a new life for myself.
    What was your experience with your medical team?I think they are absolutely wonderful. They took the time to explain what was going on with my body and what the best way to treat, not the symptoms, like so many other doctors do, but how to treat the actual medical problems. My only issue would be with the time frame in which I received the medical treatment that I needed on one occasion, however, I completely understand how busy they are and how full their case loads are, so I believe it was just a situational issue. Other than that, it has been an eye opening experience, to which I am grateful.
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?Wow….where to begin… Ms. Sheila, Ms. Renee, Ms. Shelley, Pastor Roy, Justin, all of my team have been so incredibly helpful. So many instances where I have really had moments of clarity and understanding. Without them, it wouldn’t have been possible for me to get to where I am at now. They truly were the people who have saved my life…or given me the tools to save my own life. They are a God send and every person that walks through that door, whose lives they touch, are blessed to have had, even if for only a brief moment, them in their lives.
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?Grief and loss, depression, one on ones, Pastor Roy, Justin, Boundries, CoDependency, so many. Too many to name!
    Is there anything we could do to improve in our ability to help you?The only suggestion would be being able to get back to the clients a little faster, when they leave notes….but again, I realize how heavy your caseloads are and how difficult that can be.
    Do you feel you have a continuation of care plan in place for your return home?Yes
    Overall, how satisfied were you with services you received at The Center?5: Extremely Satisfied
    Would you recommend The Center to other people in need of emotional support?Yes
    May we use your comments to share with others? (Your name would not be used)Yes
    Is there any other feedback you would like to give?Thank you all so much! You have all helped me save my own life and given me the strength, knowledge, and tools I need to follow through on my recovery. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers every night. I am so thankful for God to have brought this place into my life when I needed it the most. Words cannot begin to explain my gratitude. Thank you all, from the depths of my heart. I will take all of your voices with me as I continue on.

    What was your experience with your treatment team?A very positive experience. It made it so much easier to relate and be able to talk with counselors who have gone through similar trials and struggles.

    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?Acupuncture and massage. The muscle and breathing relaxation techniques. The nutrition part of the program was very beneficial. The spiritual aspect of the treatment was also very important to me.

    What were your primary goals in coming?Treat depression, get off benzos
    What was your experience with your treatment team?Amazing. Amazing. “Let us love you until you learn to love yourself.” That’s exactly what you did. Thank you. Thank you.
    What was your experience with your medical team?Kindness. Understanding. Support. Kindness. Dr. Chapek and Dr. Beusing are truly a gift.
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?Linda Ody. Incredible compassion, simply amazing. Everyone was amazing but Linda pressed hard, and she always seemed to know what I needed to look at and work on. She is a fabulous role model and her examples and compassion will guide me on my journey now.
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?I feel like the cooking classes were a gift. Thank you for that; I enjoyed them immensely. I loved the variety of classes and the variety of counselors and staff. Overall, though, the compassion and support were the key for me. Providing the books on entry was very important for me as well, and the lack of distractions encouraged me to read them early on.
    Is there anything we could do to improve in our ability to help you?I thought about this; there are minor things that I could whine about but the reality is that everything that happened here, frustrating or uplifting, is a metaphor for real life. In retrospect, not having perfection is beneficial because some things provided triggers so I could practice handling them in a healthy way. Everyone here cares and that is really all that is needed. The rest was up to me.
    Do you feel you have a continuation of care plan in place for your return home?Yes

    Is there any other feedback you would like to give?I was somewhat anxious about the religious aspect before coming, but if there was ever a positive example of Christianity, The Center is it. While I’m not a believer, I know it’s no longer something I need to be wary of. I was treated with the utmost respect the entire time, and my views were never challenged or criticized. That has been a gift as well, and I leave here with some very close friends. We are close without regard to our differences. It has been very liberating and refreshing and I thank everyone at The Center for your professionalism and support. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. You have given me a new life, and it is nothing less than that. Thank you.

    What were your primary goals in coming?To process past issues, to reduce depression and anxiety, to learn tools to help me process my feelings rather that stuffing or numbing them – which in turn would help reduce incidences of compulsive overeating/bingeing and alcohol use. To investigate my alcohol use to determine whether or not I was an alcoholic, and learn what I needed to about that.
    What was your experience with your treatment team?Oh my gosh! I cannot say enough about how wonderful they were. Everyone was so loving, honest and well-informed in their areas. They gently but directly led me on a process of self-discovery, healing and teaching me crucial tools that I need for recovery. They were honest about the work that is still needing to be done and so encouraging when I made progress, and even when I was stuck. Each one is a God-send to me and the others here.
    What was your experience with your medical team?Their knowledge in the mental health and co-occurring physical issues astounded me. They were compassionate and thorough. Sometimes communication was difficult when I didn’t have an appointment, but they did get back to me when they could.
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?Several. On a spiritual level, Renee H. so encouraged me, turning me back to God for my needs again and again and helping me to find compassion for myself by showing me in scripture where others struggled, even Jesus did and he showed us how to overcome. Mike S. and the DBT theory and application were LIFE CHANGING! Plus he is very skilled in counseling, asking the exact questions that bring about self-discovery. Shelly’s gentle but direct manner was exactly what I needed to process some very painful experiences. Linda: what can I say about her without crying? While she is trained and well informed in her field, and has life experience to go with it, it is her tenacious love that stands out boldly. Without her support, the way she created a warm, comfortable place to be a safe person for me, I don’t know if I would have come to terms with my alcoholism and addictive tendencies. God used her to ever so gently see the truth and to give me courage and hope for the journey ahead. Justin and Matt, with their “You Are Awesome” t-shirts and their willingness to share their lives with us gave great encouragement. And let’s not forget the people at the front desk. I would have been lost without their patient service.
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?Ironically, the most helpful aspect is the “lobby time” with other clients. We really needed each other to know that we can heal, and to see that we really are normal people who are going through a difficult time in life – not failures or just damaged. Also, the group sessions, even the challenging things that happen in groups serve to support the skills we are learning, and to help us know we are not alone in our feelings. “Coin out” and the fun activities help to celebrate life, even when I was still in the throes of darkness. I don’t want to forget the intake staff – I wouldn’t be here without there thorough work.
    Is there anything we could do to improve in our ability to help you?Communication with the pharmacy could probably be improved.

    What were your primary goals in coming?To get out of the deep dark hole of Depression I was in. Learn why I hated myself so much. Learn about proper eating and Anorexia and how to control it. To talk about and learn coping skills regarding a past abusive relationship. Learn techniques to use for helping anxiety.
    What was your experience with your treatment team?I absolutely loved everyone of them. They work so closely “behind the scenes” putting a plan together just for me and made sure it was changed as needed. I learned something from every single person on my treatment team. I can’t thank or say enough great things about them. I don’t think I’d be here today with them.
    What was your experience with your medical team?Absolutely wonderful. They were so kind, so patient, so real, so honest. I am not one to trust very easily, but I put my faith in them and they came through for me. They helped me in every way they could and went above the call of duty to see that I was okay. They hung in there when things didn’t work and came up with another plan every time. I respect them so much. I will never forget them.
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?They were all very helpful. I am so glad that Karen Brown was my Primary. She is the most kind woman I’ve ever met. She knows her job well and always knew what to say to help. She always had a plan and never brushed me off. She is a great listener. Dr. B was so wonderful to teach me correct breathing techniques and meditation techniques, he is one of a kind, very gentle, and so very patient. Renee is so full of faith that her light shines, I love that she laughs at herself and makes us learn to laugh even when the times are tough.
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?I loved the “Depression” groups. We’d discuss a topic for an hour or so and it was always a very profound topic with a great lesson. Then we would play a game which we all needed to lighten the “mood.” Renee is top notch. I learned so much from her.
    Is there anything we could do to improve in our ability to help you?No. I believe I’ve learned more here than I’ve ever learned in the over 25 years of therapy I’ve been in.
    Do you feel you have a continuation of care plan in place for your return home?Yes

Thank you Dr. Jantz for starting this program. I can’t say enough wonderful things about “The Center.” YOU ALL ROCK! Thank you everyone and May God Bless You Abundantly!

    What were your primary goals in coming?I wanted answers to help me free myself of the depression that has plagued my life since childhood.
    What was your experience with your treatment team?I had counselors that helped me see things (myself, others and circumstances) in a new light. They challenged me with homework that let me look into myself and find the answers on my own. They led me down the right path, but ultimately let me make the discoveries. In group sessions, they created a safe and open environment for me and other clients to be real with ourselves and others. I have learned soooo much from them. Especially with understanding the nature of my disease, and wonderful tools to learn to gain my power back. They helped me find my visual nature as a way to truly get in touch with myself. They shared scripture, books, handouts and lectures that made things so much clearer. They fostered my growth and celebrated with me. I sincerely felt cared for, understood, and given the gift of belief in myself.
    What was your experience with your medical team?Dr. Kabran rocks the casbah!! He was incredibly kind, generous and informative. His humble approach made it so much easier to be open and honest with him about helping to make decisions that would best suit me. It was incredible that he was able to cover so much ground in just 30 minutes. He was the first physician in my life to really listen to my needs, and consider finding that they would be best addressed in counseling instead of organically. I have never had a doctor explore my memory issues with me, and help me process the social and psycholological roots that seem a more plausible explanation than having testing and taking medication. I was astounded at his open mindedness and compassion. He also found ways for me to receive the medications/supplements he suggested for me, in a way that would be more economical for me going forward. He really took into consideration the limitations of pharmaceutical insurance, and reconfigured my treatment plan to best suit my needs when I return home. He was such a delight to work with… incredibly refreshing! I am sold that Naturopathic doctors should be the norm!
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?I was able to have many group sessions and some individual sessions with Renee, and I feel like she really got to the heart of my troubles. She has a knack of putting simply that which I had complicated for myself for so long. She provided me with tools and references to address a variety of issues I had, and I am grateful for the freedom to bring it all that home. I also cannot discount the sessions with Karen, where I found my inner voice. She put me in touch with myself in ways that seemed simple enough, but made such a humongous difference. I will fondly remember them both, and have their voices in my head when I need some reassurance. 🙂
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?I think I found each group and individual session was where I learned the most, found the most answers, and felt the most support.
    Is there anything we could do to improve in our ability to help you?Fix the troubles of insurance coverage. Lol. (you guys were so great about doing all you can… I am so grateful!)
    Do you feel you have a continuation of care plan in place for your return home?Yes

    Would you recommend The Center to other people in need of emotional support?Yes
    May we use your comments to share with others? (Your name would not be used)Yes
    Is there any other feedback you would like to give?I am close to tears when I think about how broken I was when I came here. I am leaving with a sincere sense that I can do this. I am good enough, important enough, and worth all the love that I can muster for myself. I have a different appreciation for the people in my life, as well as a better connection to God, who is the reason that I am so wonderfully imperfectly perfect. I now have faith that he has a great plan for me, and I have only believe and love myself to know what that plan is. I never thought I would leave here with such a feeling of grace. This was my little piece of heaven, and now I get to go back to my reality on earth and spread some of my newfound love of life. I cannot be more greatful that Dr. Janz created this place, as part of His divine plan for him. There would be many more lost souls in the world without this place.

    What were your primary goals in coming?I sought a respite-care center where I could grieve the death of my marriage by my husband’s addictions with spiritual and therapeutic support.
    What was your experience with your treatment team?Fabulous. All therapists were fully invested in my best interests, supportive mentally and emotionally. I am forever indebted to The Center, Shelley Miller and Sheila Michaels, Dr.Jantz and GOD!!!!
    What was your experience with your medical team?Great.

    What were your primary goals in coming?To address the main issues affecting my life and keeping me incapable of functioning in the real world. Alcohol addiction, eating disorder, depression, anxiety, suicide and spiritual issues.
    What was your experience with your treatment team?My treatment team was excellent and brought the most rounded and extensive care that I could have ever hoped for.
    What was your experience with your medical team?I am very pleased with the medical team. They helped me figure out what medications were effective for me, which ones I did not need any longer and ones that would help in more effective ways. They also helped me to get a lot healthier using supplements and natural medicines instead of relying solely on mental health and pain medications.
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?Shelley was the most helpful. She helped me work through the most difficult trauma issues that I had never been able to touch in the past. I was finally able to look at them and be able to address parts of the past that kept me stuck in pain and anger that I have needed to let go of for many decades.
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?I found that the Chemical Dependency part of the program was particularly great. I have been to a number of treatment centers for alcohol addiction and this is the first group that really allows for you to get to the “heart” of issues and share your real pain. There is education involved as well, but to be able to actually share the difficult stuff in a safe environment has been very beneficial. Justin does a great job at facilitating the group and allowing people to bring their issues to the classes.
    Is there anything we could do to improve in our ability to help you?Sometimes it is difficult to find out exactly where you are in the insurance process, but I am pretty sure that this is an issue with the insurance company and not the Center. There was only one facilitator that I did not feel safe sharing in her groups, but beyond that, I felt that the Center worked in all areas to help me get what I needed to get on the path of recovery.
    Do you feel you have a continuation of care plan in place for your return home?Yes
    Overall, how satisfied were you with services you received at The Center?5: Extremely Satisfied
    Would you recommend The Center to other people in need of emotional support?Yes
    May we use your comments to share with others? (Your name would not be used)Yes
    Is there any other feedback you would like to give?When I called around to find help, the Center (and Laura) was the ONLY place that would actually help me, everyone else I called turned me down. You truly were my last “Hope”. I was not sure at the beginning that you could really do what you said and give me any resemblance of a life back. However, to my utter surprise and gratitude, six weeks later I actually have hope that I can live a life. Not just exist, but live a life full of Joy, Grace, Happiness and Hope. I may not be there yet, but I can see glimpses of it coming. Jesus has provided me with a lot of gifts, I believe the Center (and Laura) was one of those gifts!

    What were your primary goals in coming?My goals were to get treatment for Bipolar disorder, to gain a support group, to learn coping skills for my illness, to improve the relationship between me and my husband and to have emotional & spiritual growth.
    What was your experience with your treatment team?I really enjoyed working with my treatment team, especially Mike Weiford and Sheila, during individual sessions. They both worked hard to treat me and I valued the time I had with them. I feel that all of the staff was supportive and considerate of my illness and needs for this program. I enjoyed having group classes with all of the staff members especially Renee and Linda.
    What was your experience with your medical team?Dr. Kabran Chapek and Dr. Scott Buesing were very thorough and thoughtful in treating me. I enjoyed Dr. B’s humor, knowledge and insight of my bipolar illness and nutritional supplements. He recommends for me to have my primary doctor (outside of the Center) test me for a possible thyroid condition.
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?All of the team members at the Center were very helpful! I particularly enjoyed Renee, Karen and Linda for interesting group sessions. I appreciate Sheila and Mike S. looking for content for me that specifically covered bipolar mania. That was truly helpful for me! I want to thank my entire team for challenging me and for being dedicated to my care. I’m thankful for Mike W. for being so understanding of my circumstances and for allowing my husband to join us in my final individual session with him so we could discuss my continued care and transition back home. Thank you for caring and supporting me!
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?I found that the nutrition classes, anxiety management and having access to the Harbor Square Fitness Center were very informative and beneficial to my well-being at the Center and for my treatment to be successful. I felt that the individual session were really important as well.
    Is there anything we could do to improve in our ability to help you?I really enjoyed the program at the Center. The group classes were mainly for depression, anxiety, abuse and co-dependency…I only wish that there were classes that discussed an overview of all mental illnesses such as Bipolar. Most of the group sessions were helpful but some were slightly less relevant for me.

    Would you recommend The Center to other people in need of emotional support?Yes

I have learned so much and I look forward to going home tomorrow with the knowledge I’ve gained about Bipolar disorder and the underlining issues. I also enjoyed having access to the Harbor Square Fitness Center. Also, thanks for the informative books, Dr. Jantz. I really was impressed with my treatment at the Center and with the staff and other clients; this program exceeded my expectations!

This has become the hardest but most rewarding season of my life. I have found out who I am in Christ and that I am forgiven which has enabled me to forgive myself.

    What was your experience with your medical team?It was enlightening and enjoyable, with lots of good tips and insight.

    What were your primary goals in coming?Finding inner peace and joy
    What was your experience with your treatment team?My treatment team was AWESOME!!! I felt they took the time to listen and understand me. I am thankful to have had the pleasure to work with Roy, who helped me regain confidence in my relationship with Christ. I am grateful to have been able to work with Shelly who has a gentle heart and listened to me and gave me validation through compassion. I am blessed to have been able to work with Sheila who taught me it is ok to feel my inner core and stand up for what I feel is right, even though others may react in ways that might make me feel uncomfortable. It is not my business what how they react, it is only my business how I feel and if I am doing the right thing for me. Renee was not assigned to my treatment team, however I feel I should add a special note to express my sincere appreciation for her love for the Lord. It was an amazing experience to be in every one of her group sessions and I know the Lord is working through her because her heart is open an filled with the Holly Spirit. I also will add that Justin has a great way of relating to people and a truly compassionate heart, it was a pleasure to be in his groups. I am thankful to Laura Minor for the love and support and continued encouragement for me while I have been here. She was prompt in calling me from the moment I submitted my online depression survey and she did a fabulous job putting together my treatment team. But above all I have to thank God, for giving Dr. Jantz the means to found The Center… and bring me here at a time in my life that I was fully ready to receive everything I have.
    What was your experience with your medical team?I appreciate the way Dr. Kabron listened to my wants and needs. He informed me of my options and took into consideration my feelings, this gave me confidence in myself and in him. Dr. B. is a great source of knowledge and I am grateful to have been able to pick his brain about natural ways of treatment and biofeedback.
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?See Above
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?I loved my time with Peggy, she makes fitness fun.

This is something I am seriously considering continuing at home. I would like to educate myself more on the practice.

    What were your primary goals in coming?I came to the center to focus on my disordered eating which ran included the spectrum of compulsive overeating, bulimia through exercise, calorie restriction, extreme high anxiety, depression and anger. I had severe marriage challenges, overwhelmed from an intense blended family situation with 5 children (teenagers), 2 biological children, 3 stepsons, a 20 year career, and traveling sales workaholic husband, with heavy drinking
    What was your experience with your treatment team?Because of my “type A” head first aggressive personality, I was welcomed with several learning opportunities and a “loving, nurturing, faith-based staff” who was well trained, good with boundaries who did not tell you what you wanted to hear, but provided you the supporting and “truth” to wellness and tools to get you on your way to the “whole person” approach if in fact you “were motivated” do do the work!
    What was your experience with your medical team?The medical team was thoughtful in their approach to your medical care. They did not jump in with conclusions. They welcomed and listened to your past history, did the appropriate assessments before making a diagnosis and working towards a natro-pathic type solution that promotes health nutrition, exercise and brain wellness. They again, do not let the client, run at their speed, instead they are sure to monitor your meds, supplements for safe keeping to keep you and others in the program safe at all costs. Excellent job by Dr. B., and Katy! There is a method to their directions. Follow what they say, it does work!
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?Renae was my hero! She led me back to Christ and to prayer! She showed me once again, I cannot do this alone. Jesus is my savior, and the only way for me! Without Him, I will not succeed! Thank you for Psalms 23! Karen Brown, bless her for being the catalyst to take a risk, show me the way. She believed I was strong enough to change!
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?I must admit, the nutrution classes were very enlightening. Who knew! As an eating disorder expert, or so I thought, I didn’t know everything about proteins and carbs…. Tracey did a fabulous job coaching us in these areas. Plus the QFC runs ended up being informative!
    Is there anything we could do to improve in our ability to help you?Fun Fridays, or the Friday afternoon, a bit painful after the long week. I know the coin out’s are imperative, there has to be a way to make them more efficient and yes more fun….. We should break out the coin out to 1 hour max, go play frisbee outside, take a walk, do something, besides sit…. another hour…… get creative!
    Do you feel you have a continuation of care plan in place for your return home?Yes

    What were your primary goals in coming?To stop having anxiety attacks, anger management, and to find a level of peace.
    What was your experience with your treatment team?I had a great experience with my treatment team. I was skeptical of having different people for my individual sessions but it worked really well. I didn’t always like what I heard or had to do but in the end it helped me a great deal. Thank you!
    What was your experience with your medical team?I worked with Dr. B. He took the time with me to answer my questions (which I had a lot). I’m used to having 10 minutes with my doctor so this was nice. It’s hard when you have anxiety to determine where the anxiety ends and medical issues begin. Dr. B. found an issue with my thyroid and that’s now being treated. I was able to get off medication that was making my anxiety worse. I am happy I got to work with Dr. B.
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?Gigi is amazing! I love all of my team but she sticks out for me. She really helped me see my need for balance. She helped me see I am more than my job. She helped me think of alternatives so I will have time for self care. I now see I have value and when I came here I thought it was only my work and money.
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?I liked stretching with Peggy, art therapy, and relaxation with Dr. B. These are tools I can use to help me relax and I really need that.
    Is there anything we could do to improve in our ability to help you?The only thing I can think of is sometimes it’s difficult to hear when your class has been called.
    Do you feel you have a continuation of care plan in place for your return home?Yes

    What were your primary goals in coming?Handling issues that involved my depression and anxiety first and formost. Processing traumatic situations that were also feeding into my depression. As well as getting back on track with eating and sleeping habits, and overall health. I also got an oppurtunity confront my addictions.
    What was your experience with your treatment team?I was very happy with my results from where I started from and where I have come. I felt very safe, and felt most of my issues were dealt with in a very good manner. I was not rushed with each process and I really enjoyed the variety of perspectives I could learn from and take with me. I never had any problems with any of my team. I couldn’t of asked for better.
    What was your experience with your medical team?My medical team was very informational as well as helpful. I thank them dearly for the way they had helped me get my physical strength back. I got back up to date with eating and sleeping habits. I found many ways to cope with a panic attack if necessary among other things. They answered all my questions and I am very thankful for them. They did a very good job to look out for my personal best interest.
    Was there a team member you found particularly helpful?There were two in particular. Karen Brown, my primary, who I enjoyed very much. Although in some situations I was uncomfortable she enabled me to break the barrier, and hit the ground running. She did wonderful. The other, Justin Hartfield, was very supportive, easy going and made me feel as if I were safe here, and right at home. I respect the both of them so much and thank them for helping me grow. I was ecsatic with the way they led the way to a good recovery.
    Were there aspects of the program (fitness, art therapy, certain classes, such as cooking classes) that you found particularly beneficial?Intensive outpatient program was the best class I had ever been to. It was a giant part of my recovery and I felt trustworthy about every person in there. I stated it was like our own little family because we could all reach a deeper level. I presented all assignments in that class before individual sessions. I enjoyed the different perspectives and the feedback. This class was incredibly supportive, I reccommend it for anyone with chemical dependency.
    Is there anything we could do to improve in our ability to help you?Keep doing what your doing here, I’ve seen lives change. That brings me hope.
    Do you feel you have a continuation of care plan in place for your return home?Yes

    Personal Letters written to The Center’s staff 2011

    “I would like to take the time to Thank you for all your help, support and sacrifice for me! My words of gratitude just don’t seem to express just how grateful I am for you and the amazing opportunity you have given me.

    I would like to first tell you that your program at the Center has changed my life. I knew I was struggling, I felt I needed help but didn’t know what help I needed. I felt stuck, alone and hopeless. I had been crying out to God for him to help me out of that place I was in for some time and I believe he answered that cry and used you and all the wonderful people at the Center. When I arrived at the Center it was the first time in months that I felt safe, loved, and hopeful. I learned that I was suffering from depression and had more issues than I thought, ha ha ha. But I was given so many great tools to overcome these. I realized that my thinking of who I was, my self worth, was wrong and distorted. I was sacrificing all my needs, thought I should be strong enough to do it all on my own, ” the perfect missionary just needs God and no one else”. I learnt that I have needs too, Jesus had people to support him, and I am human. I have always been extremely hard on myself, I was to the point that I felt whatever I did was never enough, my body couldn’t rest, I was restless and felt guilty anytime I did anything for myself, bought anything for myself etc. I thought that I needed to suffer like those suffering here. But I have learnt that I need to put on my oxygen mask before I can put on anyone esles’. I need to allow myself to enjoy life, to have my needs met (receive God’s blessings), and to take care of myself. I also needed to grieve many losses in my life that I had pushed down inside for so long. And I am dreaming again, I had thrown all my dreams out the window as another sacrifice, but I am dreaming again and this brought such great hope to me. This is just an overview of all that I learned, only the beginning.

    I have just begun my journey to healing and overcoming these battles but God has equipped me with many great tools. There are many changes I need to make and I am making but I am trying to take one day at a time and to enjoy the moment I am in. I feel stronger now than I ever have in my entire life.

    My experience at the Center is one that I will never forget and will cherish forever. I not only was changed but I had the privilege to watch God change others’ lives as well in the 2 short weeks I was there. I grew very close with the other people in treatment there, was so encouraged by them, and had great opportunities to to speak God’s truth to them. I could relate to them, felt deep compassion for them, and found it so hard to say goodbye. I found myself looking at them, seeing where they have been, the scars, and could see their great value, I could see them as if I was seeing them through God’s eyes. I saw drug addicts who so badly were searching for acceptance with deep emotional and physical scars but saw hope in their eyes, smiles emerging on their faces, and these people becoming who God created them to be and dreaming again. I saw women who suffered from abuse emerging from those deep scars, becoming strong women. I saw people in deep depression, consumed by their thoughts and then smiles and peace filling their faces, hearts and minds.

    You have an amazing mission, God is using you all in great ways to heal people. I am praising God for this opportunity I have been given and pray he blesses you and the Center greatly. You have an amazing team there in the Center, very equipped, compassionate, helpful and I could go on and on.”

    “Hello, my name is Patty. I am a 54 year old woman and on November 23, 2009, I died. I took an overdose of a muscle relaxer and called my brother and said goodbye and then proceeded to call my dad and do the same. My husband took me to the emergency room where I went to sleep and stopped breathing. This was not the first time I had wanted to “just go to sleep,” “just get a break from life for a little while,” but it will be the last.

    Through an exhaustive search process by my children, they found The Center, A Place of Hope.

    Now fast forward to December 7th 2009; my life began again. On December 7th, I walked into The Centeron Dayton Street in Edmonds Washington a very very broken and scared woman, not knowing what to expect, but knowing that this was my last hope. What I ended up finding there was not my LAST hope, but rather my FIRST hope. My only quest when I went to The Center was to get knowledge about depression and the tools to treat it. What I ended up walking out with after a short 30 day treatment stay was self esteem, inner peace and for the first time in my life, happiness.

    For me the key to this success was the whole-person approach to treatment. The Centertreats your emotional, spiritual, nutritional, relational, and physical self in order for you to leave a whole person. My days consisted of many hours of one-on-one treatments with various counselors that were handpicked for my particular needs – “My Team” as they were called, and also many group sessions where you got to listen and learn from others that shared your same feelings and challenges.

    It meant so much to me to be in a room with others that I didn’t have to explain how I was feeling; they were feeling that too, but even more importantly to be “heard.” To be acknowledged by counselors that really wanted you to be better, wanted you to succeed. That felt good. Don’t get me wrong, this was not an easy, cake walk of a process; it was anything but that. I had to dig in and want to change, want to learn, and want to be free of this life sentence called depression. It meant working sometimes 8 to 10 hours a day on me, on my issues, and be willing to do whatever it took to heal with the guidance of my team.

    On January 3, 2010 I flew back to my home and my family a whole, happy woman for the first time in my life. The days and weeks that have followed have not been met without challenges, but with the tools that I learned through my counseling sessions at The Center, I am able to work through them without that dire, “the world is coming to an end” mentality. I now am able to find my truth in a situation and work through it.

    I will forever be grateful to my family for finding A Place of Hope and for investing in my life and in my future. MY FUTURE…what wonderful words those are.


    Dear _____,

    It is with great gratitude and joy that I send you this note.

    Most people think that one person can’t make a difference in this world. You have made a difference in the lives of so many people-and you have made a difference in mine for which I will be eternally thankful.

    Never in my wildest dreams could I ever think that I could feel so “whole”. I am, however! I feel “oneness” with myself-no longer disjointed and fragmented. It feels wonderful! I am so free to be!!

    I want to thank you again for what you are doing at The Center! Thank you for your vision and your faithfulness to live out your “calling”. And thank you for being a true professional-your commitment to excellence in service is highly regarded.

    You have influenced me greatly! I hope one day I too will be a true professional!

    Letters From Professionals Recommending The Center 2011

    It’s my pleasure to recommend Dr. Gregory Jantz and The Center for Counseling & Health Resources as a support for your ministry. As a pastor I have found The Center to be an excellent source for professional Counseling (therapy) for those individuals whose needs exceed my skills. The fruit had been indicative of a professional, God-centered, and compassionate “methodology”. Our people have been helped and blessed by the association. Personally I have found the staff to be of the highest integrity using good Biblical & Psychological techniques to effect health and well being. They are a legitimate resource and extension of the work of the church.

    Pastor Bennett 


    In the six years that I have taught nutrition, I have become increasingly aware of the need for nutrition counseling to be in tune with emotional needs. Counseling without nutrition is limited, and nutrition without an awareness of the emotional state of the client is also very narrow. The Center skillfully blends the two to meet the needs of the whole person. The many clients who have been guided in their healing are a testimony to the strength of The Center’s programs.

    I was also impressed by the peaceful atmosphere of The Center. Busy schedules do not interfere with the efficient and professional atmosphere. Too, I was impressed by your generous sharing of your knowledge in your role as a preceptor.

    I wholeheartedly support The Center’s mission and wish you all continued success.

    Dear Dr. Jantz:

    Thank you so much for being our guest on Book Talk. You are so fun to interview! I enjoy your enthusiasm.

    I really appreciate your book on depression. I think many of us who are Christians feel we should not suffer from depression. As a result, we do not seek the help we need. That is why your book and your ministry are so important. Thank you for all you do.

    My experience has all been positive and I am happy to recommend your services to Christians everywhere.

    Dear Dr Jantz,

    I hope I get the opportunity to speak with you at some point because I respect your work, and feel you really do understand the complexity of eating disorders, and also understand that it is possible to heal from them…I also appreciate the practical guidance you’ve offered for integrating back into a normal lifestyle after the emotional, spiritual, and psychological healing has taken place. You are a very wise man. Take care and I hope to talk to you in the near future.

    Sincerely,

    Cynthia French
