Another colleague.

Returning to civilian life isn't always the smoothest transition.

Beyond the newfound freedoms of living out your days the way you want, there are so many more underlying feelings that come with the transition. Often service members will feel like they don't fit in since their experiences seem way different than someone who hasn't served.

Many individuals struggle to ask for help because of the way they've been taught. They might not communicate that they are struggling with the transition, and may just dive into whatever work, school or task is at hand without stopping.

If you're feeling this way, you're not alone.
We want to help you get back on your feet with a sense of purpose. Nercy can help!

Protecting our children and our families...

When it comes to this new school year, a lot of parents are feeling the pressure to make the right decision for their children, but this is uncharted territory. When you don't have examples to follow or a sense of certainty about the future, it can be even more difficult to make that choice.

We understand how stressful this can be and we want to help you feel more at peace with your decisions for the new school year.

Connect with one of our therapists for just 2-3 sessions to help untangle your thoughts and build a plan as you face these challenges.

We're here for you.

Collectively, we witnessed the world transform in the span of a year, and collectively we're tasked with the need to recover from it. The "pandemic rut" is real, and it's left us unsure how to process the year we just had.

We invite you to let it into your hearts and thank it for being a year where we were challenged to adapt and where we can see the areas we need to improve more clearly. Although we were greeted with pain and loss in 2020, we can use it to fuel our growth this year.

Are you having a hard time processing the pandemic? Connect with a therapist today:

Keep trying.

Motivation is not easy for a lot of people. If you are trying to learn how to pick yourself back up, trying your best to root for your own success, seeking help and resources, you ARE courageous.

This is a moment to celebrate anyone who has said this to themselves.

We get it. The world is changing and it's hard to keep up. As much as we've tried to prepare ourselves mentally, it's been impossible to predict how the return to socialization was going to affect us.

It is so normal to feel anxious and have a degree of social anxiety after living through a year of limited contact. Checking in with a therapist for even just 1-2 sessions can make all the difference as you navigate this post-pandemic world.

One of our therapists, Marti, calls herself a "wisdom coach" for this exact reason.

It's so important to work with a therapist who understands your culture, understands your hesitation about speaking about the difficulties you face, and someone who can help you overcome those fears about opening up.
