Black Lives Matter

George Floyd. 
 
His name must be said. 
 
Breonna Taylor.
 
So must her’s.
 
Erik Garner
 
And his. 
 
And hers.…
 
While this list could, and should go on to name all those who have died at the hands of police, both in our current century, as well as for the last 400 years, I want to acknowledge that we see you. We see you. It is clear that anything we try to offer won’t help to change the past. Whatever we say won’t help to bring back Travon Martin, Philando Castile, Tony McDade, or Freddy Grey.
 
Yet, we see you. 
 
As a white person, I do not know what it is like to live as a person of color in this county. Sure, I understand the history of policing in this country and how it was and is meant to protect bodies that look like mine, how racism has been written into the laws of this country, how privilege has been used to keep bodies of color down. And I also can’t begin to understand how that’s carried, felt, shared by those who have been oppressed, abused, subjected, beaten, ignored. I understand the history, sure, but not how that’s being held in black bodies, brown bodies, bodies of all people of color.
 
For far too long the names of those who have been killed or murdered as a result of being a person of color have been forgotten. No longer. We will not forget. You are seen. 
 
This support comes unequivocally: Being stands in solidarity with the black community. Period. We ask, say, demand, that systemic racism be met with systemic change. We state we will not sit idly by while a group of people is targeted and killed. We will work, whether by supplying pro bono sessions, giving of money, protesting, listening, canvassing, or whatever the means be, to bring change. We see you.
 
It has been said that if you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. We’re angry. We see you.
 
Alton Sterling.
 
His name must be said.
 
Jamar Clark.
 
And his.
 
Michael Brown.
 
And his… 
 
Being believes Black Lives Matter.

Video Therapy
(Just like when you use FaceTime or Skype with your friends or family, but with a therapist)

As we move through uncertain times, one thing you can count on is having access to the same high-quality services you’ve come to expect from the amazing therapists at Being. While the physical offices of Being are closed, we remain open via virtual offices. All you need is an internet connection and a device to connect to the video, like a phone or a computer. That’s it. Nothing else. No downloading. No installing. We’ll take care of the rest. 

Video therapy has been used for years and is a proven means to gain results. While it may be new to you, the therapists at Being have the expertise and experience to help you navigate using a new means of connecting and continue to work through these stressful times. Rest assured It is covered by all insurance carriers, requires no special co-pays or deductibles, and you can do it from the comfort and safety of your own home.

At Being, we believe in a holistic and integrative approach to therapy, which leads to physical and mental health. The discomfort and symptoms you’re experiencing aren’t just a product of your mind and emotions, but can arise from your body, spirit, and soul; a feeling of disconnection to yourself and to the greater world. Your health is dependent upon many parts that communicate and work together in an integrative fashion, and therefore it’s important to address the whole you, to attend to your needs as a whole individual.

Our goal, in order to achieve true mental health, is to help you find and address the root causes of your suffering, rather than to label and treat the symptoms alone; after all, you’re more than just a label. In a relaxed atmosphere, we will work with you to address the mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical imbalances that are causing you stress and discomfort. We support effective, natural approaches to healing that support the body’s own ability to bring about balance and health.
