Tom and his six year old son Josh have come a long way in the last year.”
Tom was abused as a child and struggled with anxiety and depression in adulthood, often using alcohol to deal with the trauma. He was struggling to raise his son alone, and Josh frequently missed school, acting out at home and in class. The unstable home situation was impacting both of them.
Tom entered counseling at Peaceful Solutions Counseling to confront many of the problems he was facing, and work through the numerous issues Josh was experiencing. After several months of counseling, Tom is now sober and went back to school to obtain his GED. He enrolled at Northcentral Technical College to study computer networking and recently moved into his own apartment.
Tom connected to other community resources for his son; Josh is now going to school every day and is much happier. It hasn’t been easy, but Tom and Josh are making real progress toward their goals. Tom feels strongly about the counseling he received and said, “The help I received at Peaceful Solutions Counseling has been a God send…I couldn’t have done it without them.”
