Crisis & Trauma

Dr. Wesley has worked exclusively in crisis counseling work during the early 2000s. He encountered many types of crises and trauma cases, so he has vast experience in this area, with many populations including adults, children, families, homeless, seniors, and more. He approaches these situations with a calm but proactive demeanor. He understands the systems at play and will work to guide you through this serious and difficult time, both during the crisis event in providing crisis intervention; and afterward, providing the counseling you need when you are struggling to make sense of it all.

Helping to pull you through a crisis is one of Dr. Wesley's specialties. This type of counseling is different from psychotherapy, in that it focuses on a specific event and your thoughts and feelings surrounding that event. It is often fairly brief, usually between 4 and 8 weeks, depending on the individual. We will offer you immediate coping strategies to minimize the stress of the event, help to make sure you are safe and your needs are met, provide emotional support, and help you find ways of coping for the long term.

If you have experienced a traumatic event, such as a bad vehicle accident or the death of a loved one, a diagnosis of cancer or another long-term illness, a physical or sexual assault, or a hundred other things that we could list here, whatever it may be...we are here to help you. Please reach out today and make your appointment with Dr. Wesley.
