Client Spotlight: Thankful to be Doing Better
Jim has spent his career helping others lead healthier lives. Today, he is grateful for how KYC has helped him do better at nurturing his own emotional health.
Jim has faced true challenges in his relationships with family that have caused emotional pain. He also lives with a condition that causes chronic physical pain and fatigue. After years of working in healthcare, his worsening physical health made it impossible for him to keep his job as a care provider in a retirement community, and he had to give up a job that he loved. After years of caring for others, he knew it was time to care for himself, and he reached out for help.
Without private insurance, Jim had a tough time finding the right fit for his emotional and mental care. He recalls travelling long distances to visit mental health agencies, only to find that they could not accept his health care coverage. Other organizations that could accept his coverage did not provide the level of care he expected.
Then Jim found KYC.
At KYC, he sees a therapist that he feels is truly committed to him. He receives individual counseling and also attends a group that has taught him different tools, exercises, and strategies to form healthy relationships. He found a support system not only from his therapist, but also among the other people who attend the group meetings.
From the time he walks in the front door of KYC’s office, he feels that the entire staff cares about him.
Jim feels thankful to have found the right support, and wants others to know that KYC is here for them, too. He is doing better emotionally, and has regained the confidence he needed to try to re-enter the work force. He hopes to once again help others in need.
Like Jim, many of our clients do not have private insurance. KYC is proud to be an organization that can provide crucial services and programs to people with a variety of health care coverage networks.
