caringThe team believes there are two key approaches to use when dealing with the storms that come into our lives.

The first is coming alongside outside agencies focused on helping with the physical aspect of storms, like moving tree limbs, restoring electricity, moving debris, tracking down loved ones, or stabilizing medical symptoms with first aid. Links to these type of relief agencies are located on the toolbar to the left.

The second approach for relief from Storm Stress comes from building emotional stability over the psychological aspect of storms. This type of relief may be harder to find and harder to receive because it can be very difficult to face the overwhelming emotions that come flooding in after a disaster. This normal tendency to avoid reaching out to let others help is complicated and even compounded by the many sights, smells, sounds and feelings that invade our world after a crisis event. is here to guide you in understanding the recovery stages of Storm Stress, before, during and afterwards so you can make it through the disaster. Our team is committed to helping you gain perspective as a leader by directing you to face the dangers ahead and take bold action to change now.

We are here to guide you from experiencing stress to building stability back into your life. Remember, we want you to come out of the storm with both physical safety and psychological strength.
