1. What makes JRM&A Therapy unique from other clinics?
We all really love the work we do and believe in the resilience of our clients. Our staff comprises of trauma experts that work with a variety of different therapy modalities.
2. What would you say to someone hesitant to use therapy?
If you’re hesitant give it a try. Therapy really should be viewed like your yearly physical checkup, but for the mind. Also, it should not be viewed as a luxury, but rather a necessity because mental health and well-being should be prioritized.
3. Have you struggled with mental health yourself?
I currently have many responsibilities since I am a wife, mother of a 5 and 4 year old, I work full time at JRM&A, and I am currently completing graduate school. I am very busy oftentimes and I feel stress and anxiety from time to time like most people. I have sought therapy in the past and the only regret I ever had was that I wish I would have gone earlier!
4. What is your role at JRM&A?
I am the Director of all Personnel. I manage the daily operations of the business and do client intake processes for establishing new clients within the practice. I also provide weekly training to staff on important subject matter relating to therapy.
5. What do you enjoy most about JRM&A?
I love our team! Every therapist and staff person is unique and has incredible skills that they bring to make this company thrive. I strongly believe in the mission of supporting and providing quality care to the military, law enforcement and their families.
At JRM&A we lead with compassionate, trauma-informed therapeutic models that are personalized and solution-focused to help support our clients’ needs and attain their personal goals.
