Family Check-ins should not be hard! Check-ins are great tools to use when you have kids that are old enough to express how they are feeling. Check-ins also allow parents to continue fostering bonds with their children.

1) family group chat

2) family game night

3) family pizza night

Freedom Is Not Free, A Letter of Thanks On 9/11

Freedom Isn’t Free

Blog by Ginny Vose, MA, MeD, Counselor with JCAC

I want to take time to thank all of our first responders, fire fighters, police officers, and our men and women from each branch of the military for volunteering to put yourself in harm’s way to keep us all safe. I can only imagine the high cost that you have or still are paying for me to be able to live as I do. You have my utmost respect and full support. You are always in my heart and in my prayers. Because you run toward danger each day, you are subject to being traumatized. You can even develop ...
