Diversity Welcome Here
Odyssey Psychotherapy serves and supports a diversity of individuals and families. Below, I highlight some of the specific ages, roles, and experiences I feel best qualified to serve. Included as well is a bit of information about why you might choose to seek treatment and how it may benefit you.
- Military Personnel (active or inactive status, or veteran)
- First Responders (police officers, firefighters, paramedics, etc)
- Medical Professionals (nurses and doctors in ER as well as those helping the seriously-ill)
- Victims of Crime (such as assault, rape, child abuse or neglect, etc)
Because “Get over it” is Rarely Helpful
When discussing your trauma, perhaps you’ve found that others either don’t understand, don’t want to talk about it, or offer the unhelpful advice to “get over it.” Worse, even family or close friends may disbelieve or judge you for speaking your truth.
I can imagine the difficulty to trust that anyone else would be compassionate and understand your pain. My experience, however, is that persistence pays off. Finding the right person takes time and discernment. I offer you my compassion and sincere desire to hear you and help you. Of course, the first step is yours alone, but, I will be your companion every step of the way along your path to healing.
Teens and Young Adults
Normally, the transition to adulthood is tough enough. This challenge is compounded when traumatic experiences occur. For adolescents struggling with unresolved PTSD or depression, a safe and confidential space can be vital to resolving these issues. Group therapy also helps to develop peer support, increase acceptance and understanding, and learn from others.
Children’s natural language is more play, less talk. Play therapy, creative arts, and games are more natural mediums for expression, learning, and resolution of internal conflicts. Often, family conflict or child misbehavior is best addressed by a family therapy approach and/or parent consultations. I’m happy to speak with you regarding how to best help your children.
Odyssey Psychotherapy is committed to diversity and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), immigration status, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations.
