Goals include developing acceptance for self, an action plan for change with openness to new possibilities leading to being self approving.   I also work with adhd families since traditional parenting is often not effective enough.  Creative behavioral systems are often called for and an understanding of anxiety that often accompanies adhd in children.

I provide an effective and healthy outlet for an individual to address issues which are preventing them from adaptively coping in their world. I foster an atmosphere in which an individual's mind, body, and soul can heal allowing the individual to reach resolution on issues that are interfering with feeling “whole and connected” in the world around them. I currently work with adults, couples, families, first responders, and military with PTSD/complex traumas, grief, and eating disorder issues. Other areas of specialty include: sexual/physical abuse & medical/health issues (cancers,infertility,etc.), adoption attachment, women's issues, relationship and marital issues, and LGBTQ population. I have worked with patients from all over the world and do consulting and trauma therapy in many of the islands. I was commissioned to work the September 11th 2001 trauma recovery effort. I additionally am EAP for the Sheriff's Department, US Boarder Patrol, and retired National Security Administration. My website www.heidisalonia.com

I am an empathetic and experienced therapist who is passionate about helping individuals struggling with trauma, PTSD, relationship issues, addiction, and anxiety. I strive to provide healing, hope, and the tools needed to regain peace, a sense of self, and to build successful relationships.

MARTIN THOMPSON, LCSW “We all struggle from time to time. Everyone needs help at some point. I know what it's like to need a hand and how important it is to find it from a non-judgmental source. One of the key elements in the way I work with you is to listen to your story. Each of us is unique, each story is different so I take great care to listen and understand how you see things and what is important to you. My goal is ”to walk in your shoes”. .I have always had a passion for mental health, working in the UK and US for over 30 years. I am a Qigong teacher which in combination with “talk”; therapy I utilize to help you to tap into your own inner silence - an ability that we all have within us. Through EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and mindfulness practices including meditation and Qigong. Developing a healthy lifestyle I can also help you learn to approach daily living from a more balanced place. These practices allow one to better manage the stressors of daily living, relationship problems and major life changes.”

Nancy believes that a metaphor for progress in therapy is a turtle: in order to get anywhere you've got to stick your neck out.

United Recovery Project is being built on the premise that using a task centered competency based approach to therapeutic interventions is vital to assisting clients with internalizing and accepting specific beliefs/understanding of key recovery and mental health paradigms. The Shatterproof Group is a First Responder specific practice which includes group therapy focused on managing PTSD and other co-occurring disorders, providing individual counselling sessions, multiple assessment tools as well as trauma specific interventions such as EMDR and RRT. The focus is comprehension of how their trauma expresses itself, managing the symptoms effectively and substantially reducing the impact of trauma related manifestations to improve quality of life, resilience and empower the client. Anne Weymouth was recently the Program Manager for Station House Retreat which is a specialized and unique approach to treatment for First Responders suffering from addiction and other trauma related symptoms. The program was designed based upon an evidence based task centered competency approach in which every component, group, assessment, session has specific objectives and curriculum to assist with the multifaceted struggles that First Responders face. The research focused approach has created the optimal opportunity for First Responders to receive the services that they need and to put them in a position for future success with greater understanding and symptom relief. Anne has prior experience working with culturally specific populations and specializes in working with closed systems. Earlier work includes being a Supervisor of a Women’s Program, Clinician with the Seminole Tribe of South Florida as well as years of work with the Department of Corrections in the State of Florida.
