Recent events in Chattanooga, Lafayette, Charleston, Baltimore, Ferguson, Nepal, and Washington, D.C. (just to name a few) impact each of us in many, many ways. Some of us feel the impact immediately and acutely, while for others the impact may go unnoticed or unacknowledged. If you need support or would like to talk with someone about how these events, or other events, are impacting you, please know that we are here to help.
