From all of us here at GTA we send our deepest sympathy and much love to everyone in Boston today. In these difficult times it is important to remember that we always have the opportunity to change a life with a caring word or compassionate gesture.

If you or someone you know is struggling with increased anxiety or a sense of overwhelm in the face of today’s explosions in Boston, please contact our office by phone (703-644-8041) or via email. We would be happy to meet with you in our Northern Virginia office or help you find appropriate help in your city.
