Being a cancer survivor myself, I've found Wellness Place to have a wonderful team of individuals with the talent and compassion to offer assistance and guidance in every facet of the healing process...for everyone involved in the cancer experience. I'm happy to give my time to a place that not only provides incredible FREE 1-on-1 services & classes, but also wonderful information (counseling, guest lecturers, groups) that you can really learn from. Another nice thing, is that it's in a beautiful setting - nothing clinical looking - very inviting! You'll really feel like you're part of a cohesive group that makes a real impact on someone's life - and it's quite a feeling.
