“If you know of anyone who is struggling with anxiety/depression etc., I highly recommend Meier Clinic. It was truly an amazing experience. . .The last week I was there, the anxiety and depression had lifted. . .I learned so much about allowing myself to feel and experience my emotions, being honest before the Lord and processing them and expressing them in healthy ways. . .I learned so many things it is really hard to describe it all, but mainly to trust the Lord again, even in the midst of pain. . .My experience at Meier Clinic has been among the most meaningful and healing experiences of my life. There is no way I could ever express in mere words the blessings I received. How each person I met became so dear to me and helped me along the climb out of the pit of anxiety/depression. . .I truly felt so loved, valued, safe with everyone at the clinic . . .Here it is two years later and I am walking strong in the Lord, filled with His joy and helping others to find healing as the Lord led me to healing. I will never forget my wonderful experience at the Meier Clinic. . .” Teresa 9/10/12
