The hearts at our clinic are heavy laden.  We grieve with the broken-hearted and recognize weariness from the pain around us.  We stand in corporate grief with the family of George Floyd, and all those who suffer due to the pain of historical trauma.  We stand in regret for our nation’s past and current division as we continue to battle racial bias.  We also acknowledge the psychological challenges faced by our first responders.  We offer an open and welcoming door for all those who are hurting and needing support.  The virus has taken a lot from us and now we are facing another significant challenge.  So, as we continue our work at LDR, our passion grows and our focus sets on caring for all people who seek our services.
