“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” ― Brené Brown
Everyone at the Dean Center have been very helpful in educating and helping patients find coping mechanisms for day-to-day symptoms. I am thankful to now have this toolbox to help me find some sort of balance in this totally chaotic and stressful life. This balance can be attained through guidance and through practice, the Dean Center provides all these services to their patients, free of charge. I must say that the work that has been going on at The Dean Center has been nothing short of miracle. In such a small amount of time they have helped so many people get their lives back. And for those of us who have felt there was no hope left, it has been a place where magic truly happens.
