Women’s Mental Health Counseling Center Uses Spruce for Secure Communication

Meet Virago Wellness, a women’s mental health counseling center in Portland, Maine.

Virago offers therapy, group support, and education for women. And, use of the word ‘women’ is inclusive of gender diversity. They serve all individuals in gender affirming ways and the counselors build real connections with clients and provide education, information, and targeted support to empower everyone to make the changes they need to go from feeling alone and overwhelmed to empowered and loving life. ​​

A Virago is a woman who doesn’t play by the rules. She refuses to keep the status quo. She knows in her bones there is something better for herself ‘out there’. And, she goes after what she wants. Most women come to Virago Wellness feeling like anything but a warrior. They feel powerless and stuck and have tried to make it work on their own but need support. That’s where Virago Wellness steps in.

A bit about the business…

The therapists at Virago Wellness work with the unique mental health needs of women. Women experience anxiety and depression in different ways. They struggle with self worth and often put the needs of others before their own. Further, women are more relationship-focused and need a therapist they can connect with. 

Virago Wellness makes the process of getting started with therapy both easy and streamlined so clients can focus on their healing goals. Clients will be empowered with support, knowledge, and tools to make real change. This kind of healing takes courage and fortitude. Virago Wellness serves all genders and identities and their specialized intersectional approach honors the unique needs of women, LGBTQA folks, BIPOC women, and neurodivergent, or other-abled women.
