Family Counseling

One Family's Journey With Walter Rice

The fact that Walter also has a private practice in his home made it easier for my kids, who had proven to be anxious waiting in traditional waiting rooms.

"Walter Rice's wealth of knowledge and diverse techniques are a wonderful resource in reaching people who do not respond to traditional talk therapy."

"Our family adopted three older children internationally, who unfortunately had serious mental health issues, PTSD, unresolved grief and anger issues, attachment problems and trouble trusting."

"Using various healing methods, Walter approached each of our children differently, despite their diagnoses and issues being the same. He assessed what each one was receptive to and centered their healing from there."

"One responded well to sound healing. One, who is highly visual, responded well to Walter's use of tangible objects to help him focus his emotions and direct them differently. One was helped greatly with a family "enhanced" Reiki session, which included each family member playing an instrument until we were in synch and each family member being involved in the Reiki session with Walter facilitating."

"I don't think it is possible to "shock" Walter. Whereas other therapist refused to work with my kids unless they spoke properly to them, Walter let them say whatever it was they needed to say and show them they couldnt throw imaginary barriers up with him. It went a long way in establishing trust with them and allowed them to progress far faster than they had with previous therapists."

"The fact that Walter also has a private practice in his home made it easier for my kids, who had proven to be anxious waiting in traditional waiting rooms. Not having to sit and wait, be around other patients, reception staff and paperwork helped with their anxiety levels and allowed them to enter their session with Walter in a much more calm, receptive state of mind. Knowing they were going to someone's home, versus a center or clinic, also helped put them at ease and break down their defenses. It conveyed as sense of openness and trust that my kids needed in order for their therapy to truly be effective."

"Although I think Walter would be effective with anyone he works with, I can't recommend him highly enough for any person who has difficulty with traditional therapy in a clinical setting."
