I am formally inviting you into the “eye of the storm”– you know that place in the middle of a hurricane where it is actually calm even though there’s chaos whirling all around. That is what I would love for your reality to be like during this coronavirus pandemic.

Whether you are stressed out by the uncertainty of this situation or maybe you are overwhelmed with your children’s school closure, I want you to know that we are here for you. Perhaps you are frustrated with your partner and the way that you two tend to handle things differently or maybe you’re in a position of leadership and you’re faced with some difficult decisions to make, I want you to know that we are here for you. Whatever your current circumstance is, we are here for you the same way we have been for the last 15 years.

We’re going to get through this together, and we would love to teach you some coping strategies and offer you some support. Or if you’re bored to tears from being stuck in your house, maybe we’ll just hang out and sing campfire songs together. Just kidding…Marcilla is the only person on this team that can carry a tune at all.

Right now, all of our services have converted to online counseling and online therapy via videoconferencing at zoom.us. I understand that videoconference sessions may not be your favorite. Being quarantined at my house is definitely not my favorite either, but of course, it’s a vitally important role we are all playing right now as socially responsible community members. And it turns out, videoconference sessions have been proven to be every bit as effective as coming in in person. If it’s a concern to you right now, we are happy to talk to you about some cost saving strategies. You can reach out to us at 303-455-3767 x5 or by filling out our contact form for more information.

But with the challenges that lay ahead, here is my wish for you. May you feel more grounded. May you have more tools to utilize at home. And may you be confident that you are bringing your best self to everyone that you care so much about.
