Family Therapist that will come to my house?

I'm in serious need of a family therapist that will help counsel/mediate between my Mom, Dad, brother and my sister and myself. The problem is that my Mother has had knee surgery and she can't make it to a therapists office... it would be easier for someone to come to us. It would be nice if I could find someone that took insurance and also that is holistic minded. Any ideas out there?!TIA!See More

Hello again, lol.
I'm trying to change my e-mail address but forgot my password (I normally get logged in automatically so I always forget my password when I do need it). I did not know what else to do other than sign up again. Sorry!

Welcome again, lol.

Are you changing email addresses or losing your password? I think both could be altered, perhaps.

Thanks again for doing the "uncooking" class. I love the coconut pudding I made. And the coconut was easier than I thought to open.

Does anyone have suggestions for relieving poison ivy itch?  I'm new to holistic treatments, and hubby has a small case of what he thinks is poison ivy or oak on face and hands.
