Harvey, Katrina, Celia….to some people, these are just names, but to Texans, they are storms. There are more names on this list, and there are unnamed storms that have caused flooding, fear and havoc to add to this list.

“My Session Was Great, but Now I’m Feeling More!”

Memorial Day

This week is a bit crazy here at the office, with a Monday holiday, we are not sure what day it really is today.  The office will be closed Thursday afternoon and Friday, since all therapists are taking a John Barnes MFR class in Dallas this weekend (more crazy for the schedule). We appreciate your…
