TheLomi Psychotherapy Clinic implemented ourLegacy Fire Relief Program in 2017, offeringfree counseling to community members who were in need of treatment as a result of the fires. This program continues as our fire problem has not ended. This program has provided over 1000 hours of care to people who could not afford the care they urgently needed.
With the Kincade Fire, we now have more people who need care from this traumatic event. Also, people with PTSD from prior events are seeking care as this fire, the loss of home and work, the evacuation, and power losses have triggered symptoms again.
The initial shock of the fires is devastating with the loss of people, pets, houses, businesses, and jobs. But as the initial shock diminishes, and the outpouring of support leaves, the reality of the devastation becomes very real. In this relief phase of disaster response, we help clients begin the process of getting back on their feet.
With the support of counseling, they can begin to grieve the losses they have experienced and reduce their symptoms of stress, trauma, and PTSD. They have a safe place to explore their symptoms and emotions with their therapist. They can learn to re-find a sense of safety and calm.
Recovery from trauma often requires support and professional care. The Lomi Psychotherapy Clinic continues to be a safe place for our community during this time as our community builds its capacity for resilience.
Calling our intake line will start the process of beginning therapy. Our number is: 707-579-0465, ext. 227.
Tax-deductible donations can be sent to us by mail, or on-line with a credit card. Donations will directly serve people who have been affected by the fires, people who cannot otherwise afford the care they need. We appreciate support to help us help people find recovery, resilience, and healing.
