Helping service members and their families is my passion. I understand you don’t necessarily want to have your command knowing you are seeking counseling. If so, active duty members can arrange a reduced fee and you can pay me directly. Just ask. Payments accepted are cash, check and now, Paypal. I am now in the Tricare network and your family can be seen using these benefits. Please call your provider for an initial authorization.
I have years of experience assisting non-military individuals, couples and families, as well, and have a great deal of experience working with the elderly and their families. I and accept Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Medicare, and Lifesynch at this time.
You can get a jump start by reading. While it may be uncomfortable if you are struggling with deployment issues, it is a form of therapy, and much less expensive than an hour with your therapist. A recommendation for wives and families struggling to understand their service member is War, by Sebastian Junger. (He also wrote The Perfect Storm.) It is available as a book, and as an audio book. He won an Oscar for the documentary version of it, Restrepo, another recommendation, which is available as a DVD. Please feel free to ask me for a copy of my complete (but ever-growing) reading list.
