Having been through more in life in recent years than most of us have in a lifetime, you may have come to the conclusion that you need a little more than just another admission to the VA or inpatient psych hospital. Are you seeking someone to walk along side of you to give a fresh outlook or ideas? Maybe you are trying to get some coaching as a preventative to readmission to the hospital. Are trying to wake up and do something different?
In order to get help, you’re going to have to do some work first.
- What do you want? If you’ve been in inpatient care, you have an idea of expectations for you to get better. Do they match what you want? I mean, a hospital can throw their best at you all day long, but if it’s not what you want as a definition of wellness (and need) it’s not your care, it’s not your goals, it’s not who you are and frankly, it’s not going to work.
- Is what you want different than what you need? Without mental clarity, we cannot correctly make goals. Think of it like trying to hit a target without a sight. You’ll miss.
- Are you willing to change? Please, don’t jack with me and especially yourself. It’s been said, and rightly so, “You can lie to anyone but yourself.” Then, if you are really willing to make a change, you’ll do just fine. Seriously. If you WANT to. There is either success or excuses.
So, what’s your story? My father is a veteran of the Second World War. I’ve worked with veterans who fought in WWI (yes, World War 1) to present day. I’ve heard a lot of stories, I’ve met a lot of families. Let me tell you right out, I’m no veteran. However, if you choose to work with me, as dozens of veterans have in the past, I promise to honor and respect your commitment to better health and wellness.
