Also known as telemedicine, this growing practice has been shown to be an effective treatment option lending convenience and flexibility for those struggling with depression, anxiety, and relationship problems.

We were created for relationships and when things are not going well in our relationships it can be hard to accept and reach out for help. Finding a therapist that is a good fit for both of you can also be challenging.
Setting goals of what you would like to see different in the relationship, finding solutions to the problems you are struggling with and enhancing the strengths of the relationship are what can be experienced in therapy. Couples
become well-versed at handling issues whenever and wherever they arise.
Individuals who find themselves in the role of pastor, church leader, ministry or community leader are no different than any other person. Once you look past the exterior, they are all human. They deal with the same emotions, fears, insecurities and challenges as anyone else. Life can throw many surprises at us, and while we cannot predict the outcome of any situation, we can take control of how we respond to certain situations. With the added pressure and responsibility to those we serve, leaders can find themselves dealing with depression, anxiety, and relational issues. In therapy, leaders can find a safe, confidential, non-biased place to process and work through stressors, pressures, and difficult relationship issues. Utilizing a faith based approach the leader will find the needed support to overcome these issues and be well-equiped to continue serving in their role. It is time for leaders to attend to their mental health needs and seek the care they need.
