Interview With Travis Believes
"Roberts., everyone Kim Roberts me. Thanks for tuning to the show this episode. I'm very excited to have a very special guest. His name is Travis believes and Travis is an entrepreneur and CEO of a company called winter light media. And that is the Premier social media agency for influences and brands with positive and life-affirming affirming messages inspiring the everyday person to reach their Max potential Travis beliefs. Thank you very much for coming on the show. Thank you so much for having me. Really appreciate it. Let's start off by talking about inter light media. How did you how did you get into a slight media? What's the back story there of of how you become who you are today? Yes. So, um, Ten years ago. I saw used to live in St. Louis, Missouri. That's where I'm from. Yeah, and there was a young man named Prince a lot of people know him. Yeah viral video creator and he was a rapper at the time and yeah, he was a rapper at the time and you know, I was very heavily into music and I met up with them because we live in the same city and along the same things and he had a brand called make smart cool which was all about collaboration, you know, spreading a positive messages, you know, things like that, right, but he wanted to do it through hip-hop. And so if you can if you can if you got a notice there's spoken word and Hip-Hop is very parallel anyway, right? Yeah. So yeah. Yeah. So but anyway, so I met up with him and you know, we became really good friends and the whole entire idea. I never forget he used to tell me cuz I used to try to get him to do shows like yep. Front of people like in clubs and things like that you punch out and he would be like why should I do a show in front of a thousand people when I can make a video and put on the internet suck really impact a hundred thousand people. Yeah that really like Changed My Mind Set On how to tackle the internet world. So anyway, long story short, we spent the next four years, you know trying to go viral which we had some some minor success, you know back with a million views was a lot of views on YouTube. We we had a few videos hit that but it wasn't in 2014 until he took off. And basically it was around 2016 I decided to because a lot of people started to hit this up and say hey, you know, what did you guys do to go viral like you guys are life. And at the time there was really nobody what this I like to call. I like to call the knowledge entertainment space. Yeah, where we are entertaining people through knowledge. The really wasn't a lot of jobs there were, you know, a couple of viral videos here and there, you know people creating spoken word, but it wasn't really kind of like an industry. You know what I'm saying? Yeah, and so, you know, once you know princy was been going viral for a couple of years 2016 now you have a lot of people like wanting to do the same thing. So bunch of people was reaching out to us and Prince. He was just doing his own thing, but then I decided to see I should probably start to open some of these people started helping some of these people and you know, one of the people I hope was Jay Shetty. Yeah, and he blew up then I started helping other people and they started blowing home. You know what? I mean? Let me create a company. But yeah, and and the thing is one of the things that really for me that truly made me want to create this a company wasn't even the fact that I knew I needed to help more people was more. So along the lines that when I was younger, I didn't have anybody giving me these messages. It was nobody I grew up without a dad without nobody was giving me these messages that I could be anything. I want or you know, I have a gift or you know anything to inspire me because it doesn't matter what occupation you have is it requires a court of inspiration? Yeah, whatever you do require some sort of inspiration and I wanted to kind of be the vehicle for that for other people around the world to try to help people be inspired to do whatever it is their gift is calling them to do so, that's how I started in line media. That's exciting. And what a great backstory that is Travis for a good so you talked about viral videos. Social media like what? What are some of the keys to making a video go viral? So the absolute number one key to make an any video go viral is emotion. Draw. What do you want people to feel a lot of times? I would say probably the most complicated thing Wednesday is when it's when you're when you're talking to people that are trying to replicate the process that's never really done this before as they they know information, you know, they know how to regurgitate what they know, It's about higher you going to make some money feel. It doesn't matter how good the information you have is if you can't make somebody relate to your story, then it's not going to go anywhere. You can have the Hope Diamond ring. But you know, if you're not telling somebody in a compelling way like hey, this is what it is. They're not going to they're not going to see the value in it and so once you connect with people and this is the thing every month, it doesn't matter and this is kind of like the key thing. It doesn't matter where you from what part of the world you from what culture you're from. We all literally have the same emotions.

"I. They're all trying which is nice and I. I think it's funny. Because in south city we already. I believe have like a pretty strong Gardening community And I got moved here. Originally like my friends from high school came and visited. What does everybody have to have a garden lived here all my friends? Part of the mindset right totally but I do you know but I think there are a lot more people. Who are you know just trying out and I can tell with you. Know what they order. They order one rhubarb one asparagus. Strawberries Really GonNa get you anywhere. But it'll be cute to watch. Yeah Yeah and then. Next year they'll be repeat. Customers will be more confident yet. Three Rhubarb and four. So is that sort of awareness of growing your own carrying over into the way people are ordering flowers for example are they. You have something really cute on your website where you say. All arrangements are custom and designers choice but any suggestions like bright and cheery or romantic are always welcome. Is that new or have you always had that kind of approach to the the floral arrangements? Oh that's always been my approach because I have been. Td Four is more and I have You know you get the picture and it's called. I three yellow daisies and two yellow roses. And you don't have it in you have to go to the market and then it's like all flowers are facing one direction in the picture. They take where you have to make a three hundred sixty degrees rain. Nothing like the picture and so I I lived that life so I mean every now and then if people call in the you know she really loves lilies. And it's a week in advance or a couple of days in advance and I'm going to the market or I can make it happen. I'm happy to do you know like that But we try and just you know make it. I think that those suggestions go really far like I love. I love amuse. I love eating something small that somebody says like oh she loves herbals or something like that and going with that and it helps to make our designs more beautiful when we're not restricted. The more pictures we get or the more You know direction that we get from a customer. I feel like the last creative. We are and the more stress out. We are trying to fill this vision of theirs. That's not our vision and it doesn't really work right but in general direction. It sounds like you were for pallet or kind of five. You're good with like the word by. Yeah well know. I hear a lot about what what's happening with flowers and weeds. Because Karen Thornton the event manager for this Lavar Summit. Who helps me with so many things with slow flowers? Her mother and mother-in-law are St Louis residents and they they have been the recipients of some of her orders through flowers and weeds and she's always text me the photos and she's just so happy because it is that it is that artisan character like you're never going to see an arrangement like this on a wire service website and it's just his alien so. Nice Karen that yeah and thank you thank you. She even said to me I think would whatever one of those MOMS is out of your delivery zone. She goes but they take good care of me and they know that I'm part of slow flowers so anyway I appreciate that. My goodness well established best friend of our. Hey Floor Friends. Right well high. I was so looking forward to coming to see your cutting garden and I will be back. I mean we're going to try to have a do over on this tower Grove Park event. But in the meantime what do you think the rest of the year is GonNa look like or do you have any idea I mean none of us have a crystal ball. I realize. Yeah well I I don't know I'm hoping that we can perhaps like. We did a little bit of a farms sand setup outside of the shop for Mother's Day so like you know putting some carts or some things out that people could grab quickly but it's really just so difficult to think of all the things we have in the store. We can't get them out on the sidewalk in off of the sidewalk every day. So right now. We're just trying to think about safety. I think what we have right now is working so the online ordering next day pickup. I'm assuming our shop will be able to stay open longer and longer As you know come down and You know just trying to think of inventive ways for in marketing and trying to push things that people want And you know could use right now and Right yeah right in in other words like the your everyday orders are potentially could replace that know multi thousand dollar. You know wedding that you had to the basically probably had to reschedule. I don't know I don't know how that pencils out but yeah yeah yeah exactly. We don't know if all you know we're booking weddings and fall and we hope that we can do them And you know or next spring. I was supposed to get married June six. That's what this coming June six. Oh my goodness I'm still getting married but we'll see what happens to the party. Might be different. Yes yes you were. Were you going to design your own wedding florals or event florals for the wedding I was GONNA try and ease up on my control and maybe just do the ordering and then let somebody else. Carry Out my vision but yeah. I don't know how much it would be able to Michael new well. You've you've sound positive and you sound like this. This is the kind of approach that is the healthiest life is thrown. You a huge curveball. As it is has done for everybody in our floral industry in our community. And there's things that you simply can't do to support you know your customers or to fulfil certain demands. So you're just you're just ramping up on what you can do and trying to enhance that that part of the business for now and you're right as the as the safety issues get addressed and maybe the curve flattens whether whatever that means. It's hard to know. Maybe he'll open for shopping by appointment or something. Some other kind of component that you'll add into your offerings in in the coming. We might like open the outdoor area but keep the inside club right you know people could walk around the garden and just limit it to however to be. You know. It's interesting because it's like jobs are just There's like doormen in home security this Interesting the way that things are shifting but right now we have The staff is staying. And were able. We're very fortunate in so many ways that we're able to link maintain What we have going on. And it's amazing it's fabulous. Well I think you so much for just giving us a snapshot of how flowers and Weeds is enduring. This this pandemic and I think because you've grown in a sustained organic kind of measured way as businesses. Now eight years old. Is that right? Yeah you're you you have. I'm assuming paid as you go kind of thing. And you have a lot of sweat equity so you're in a good place to weather some of this Suck it up for you. Know six months and not you know not have to close your doors right. Yes and I just you know. It's so funny because it is interesting. How this It seems like there are people who are really extremely busy. All the farmers that I'm working with are working their butts off and we're working our best ball. And then there and grocery store workers and healthcare workers and then the pandemic has made a lot of other people. Very board right. So it's like extreme opposites. You're either like you know Going stir crazy or you're just like a little jealous of the people that are going stir-crazy binge on Netflix as much as people think I you should right. Yeah but I I did have some bread rising right now my garden right now. I'm taking my one day off and I'm just doing the most I can hear a little bit of ambient noise behind. You are in the background so I appreciate you talking to us while you were doing a little weeding amongst your flowers. Kind of your brand any way right. Oh my gosh. Thank you so much Jessica and please give my best wishes to your whole team and stay safe and thanks for sharing and it was lovely to talk to you and I'm sorry we didn't get you know. Hang out in Saint Louis this weekend but I hope it what happened day. Yeah thanks so much for calling in traffic. You Bet I've literally would have been today And.

"Up the shop so Right we have to take down the shop and leave the car and it. Just it does cause confusion And we are. Yeah we're battling through that but The shop is when you log on at ten. Am To fires and we dot Com. It will be live and you can just go onto click shop online on Wednesday. It's listed out Wednesday through Sunday. I can I am until we hit about fifty orders which is usually about two o'clock And you know people are like. Why do you not take orders all day long like the time? Three is discouraging. And it's like we just can't work until midnight. Can't the water flowers and we have to clean and you know we have to hot up there route stuff and get things ready for sale and there's so much more that goes on than just ordering are playing out orders for right right. Well that kind of makes me want to ask about the labor issue have you. What is your workforce like and I know you have some co owners. So are you all you know able to save. Are Definitely you know? Safety was the first priority I think we were a little later here in down in Seattle. Obviously I think our last day of retail was march eighteenth march seventeenth so Then we closed down for about a week and I got our February taxes taken out of the account. And all of the all everybody started cashing their checks. All the vendors. And it's like. Oh my gosh okay. Well we have to figure something out so I started just going back to work. I just took a ton of pictures of our merchandise and the garden center and started ordering stuff for Spring and Carli is my partner. And she's lived the Tech Wiz and the computer persons if she put an entire online shop together and like a couple of days and And I've been working pretty much every day since Thank you for having me and I just interview. Oh No yes. Of course. I'm happy to chat But Yeah my Please have been absolutely amazing The thing about the places that we really all care for each other and I think you know at first when I started to Think about what I do to back up. I forgot to like really sit down and have a meaningful conversation with my employees about like how we can do this and I just started doing it on my own and then it got too busy for it so we all had to sit down and zoom meeting and we talked about what we needed to do and how he needs to do it and you know everyone loves the place very much we all love each other very much and So there are there's carly and myself And she's actually rehabbing her house right now as well so she's thinking stubble stress mode no And then Sam who's our gardener She you know she comes into works out in the garden My Partners Actually. Just been helping out The pickups which has been really nice he just comes over and reasons magazine and make sure nothing happens. then 'cause. I lived three doors down from the shop. So that makes it very easy. You mean Supervising the pickup process of customers. Coming to pick up their orders right. Yeah that could be a disaster. Otherwise out dedicated supervisor. Yes Adams dedicated unpaid super and he's just been great. That's great. Wow that is so interesting that you're kind of You know you pivoted into this like Capable like this fix it mode and then you realize you had to step back and have you know kind of get everybody into the same conversation right. And you know my Our Employees Jasmine. She's wonderful she's our shop manager and she was like you know she had concerns that like she didn't want to talk to customers. And so like Adam stepping in to be able to be that like medium between even though they're not allowed to come in it's so like that boundary and we respected that and adjusted accordingly. You know and Just making sure everybody has the proper. You know protection gear and you know we are. I kind of see like I'm quarantining with Adam and all of my employees because we have been like seeing each other a lot and working together a lot And we're not going out and doing anything else. But right Missouri is reopening Missouri reopened on Monday and Nobody else wants to like in the city and county. They're reopening bars and restaurants on May eighteenth and I know plenty of small business owners. That are like this is too early. We don't want to reopen. That's where we're at right now and We are getting more and more frustrated. People that want to come in and don't understand why we're not letting them and we are really trying to if who are guns there were just for right now. As far as like we don't feel safe with a lot of people coming in and touching a ton of US eight. Oh Yeah I mean you have so many more moving parts than typical just a gross overstatement like the typical flower shop. That doesn't necessarily have tools and pottery and you know a whole full-service nursery. It's just it's yeah I can see that you know. Y- that next level is going to be a real challenge like okay. Do you have to have gloves masks to Inter our store like are people going to play along with that? Are they going to resist? And it's just it's like right now. Your rules are pretty clear. And even though you've got frustrated customers at least you're all safe and they should be grateful that you're setting boundaries. Yeah but it sounds like and it's it's just a strange place Missouri right now. I think the city is doing a lot of a lot of people in the city are being very respectful But there's some counties that haven't even ever show anything down. They never shut anything. Yeah Yeah and those people they come into the city to shop. Then they're bringing their exposure to you so I can see where you you have to. You have to make some smart business choices and if you lose a couple unhappy customers and they go to the big Box Center. I guess that's okay right. I mean you're you're alive absolutely I think so. Yeah well what is You said you're going to start up on deliveries again. Tell me how the mothers stay a deliveries worked was were you happy with how that worked I we did about a hundred deliveries I would say in two days. Wow and We had to delivery drivers each day and You know they were mostly in the city or close. County is we. Didn't we didn't leave a out of thirty minutes. Outside of the shop terms are cut off and so we just would drop them off nature. There was like a porch or somewhere where you can drop it off Contact contactless and then get back in the car and give a phone call to the recipient and just let them know that they had flowers outside so because a lot offered little annual planter basket. Oh what were those like? Oh they just had like solution. Some Zinnias of you know Sweet Potato Vine. Maybe a derain eum we did like a citrus of purple and pink And then they were kind of like like A gift to mom who could then plant them herself or that sort of they were in a little charakata so they would just go straight onto the porch. They're not a diy they were already. Do they already done? I love it. They were yeah. Yeah I am so curious about the plant side of Your Business. Where are you getting all your like your flats of of bedding plants or your veggie starts doing a lot of that sewing yourself We do not. We've done some a few things We started soil box this year on some interesting herbs and veggies that we can't usually find growers But we mostly we have a farm that we work with Just like thirty minutes away. Beaver farms and they grow a ton of really beautiful herbs and Veggies And then we have one called Ritter Greenhouses. There's actually two different. Breeders ones perennials and one's annuals so And then we always go down to the Mennonite Auction and the central Missouri Produce Auction every year And we usually dock up on big lots of veggies. Annuals or perennials. From did you do that already or were you able to get on that? When we didn't we weren't able to do it this year. Yeah just you know. Three hour trips and Yeah it's not this year because of the current. Wow that's interesting so the feel like that. You're you're narrative about how busy you are with people wanting to potting soil and veggie starts and I see this playing out all across the country and this kind of shift to. I don't know it's almost like wouldn't it's not hardcore food security but it's like some kind of peace of mind that I can grow something it of course here in the city so a lot of people don't have large parcels but Is this a bigger kind of awareness than you've seen in past years? Oh I think.

"You know start being able to provide you know deliveries in the city or close county for people who have chronic phase or are morning someone or something like you know the things that we all need flowers for okay so the deliveries will be more for everyday flowers flower orders and then the curbside pickup is is also for flower. Orders most mostly. It's it's the bags of soil and and that sort of thing Wow Wow that's so. This is all an answer in response to my question about the cutting garden so now the cutting garden has a purpose. It's just maybe not the original purpose or maybe it's just they just you know. We usually supplement with the stuff from the flower market. And hopefully now this coming year. We'll just have more and more powers for every day so off You know not have to go to the market as much and when you started Jessica you really took the I thought you the initiative to develop relationships with flower farmers in in you know the key greater St. Louis and be suburb urban and country areas outside of Saint Louis to source from establish fire farmers. Before you started cutting growing more of your own. Didn't you oh yes. So this past in Mother's Day this last week we did Seven different Farms that we gathered. Well actually six different farms. We gathered from plus our garden and then we also supplemented a little from the foul markets. Wow it's really a a huge mission of ours to support local farmers and also work with them to you know I know that urban grows amazing relentless so we don't really even try with this but we grow a lot of columbine and bleeding hearts and things but you know perennial wise. They pop up and they're beautiful. They don't really take much work I'm and they complement each other right. That's so smart. Like let them be the go. Deepen widen in that category of over nonetheless. Which you know you can still get a premium price for in a an arrangement even if you're not growing at yourself right so the on your website right now. It says online shop is open Wednesday through Sunday at ten. Am and closes after fifty orders. Pick up his always next day between two and five PM. I read. That and I was like that makes sense to yes but I cannot tell you how many retail florists are probably thinking. Oh my God I would be so I die and go to heaven if I had fifty orders I mean is that kind of how did you come up with tickle? Not It's not a florist number. That's the garden okay. So I mean that's like you know we do a lot. We're just doing a lot of herbs. A lot of tomatoes so You know it's maybe there's ten cut maybe ten bouquets day but The orders are definitely for fardon centers stuff. Wow it's definitely been really it's hard to Just get people to understand that. And there's a lot of questions a lot of phone calls but we're doing our best to try and you know. Remain Calm and Jessica. Do you have any kind of ECOMMERCE component on your website or is this all like every call is like a custom? Customers shop online shop opens at ten. Am So we have to go onto squarespace and physically enable the page to be on. That's because okay that's why I'm not seeing otherwise. Yeah otherwise you can't brow and that's the hardest part about our technology that we haven't been able to figure out that we can't like take away the cart but.

"Hi Jessica I debra. How are you allowed? I'm not as good as I would have been because I was supposed to be in your fair city this week in Saint Louis collaborating with you. That didn't happen but doing so. We're doing this. Virtually what was that event that we were going to do together in in Saint Louis? So it's the annual fundraiser for our Tower Grove Park which is one of the most beautiful parks and one of the closest parks. My House And last they always do like a tribute to flowers in spring. They have beautiful gardens. There and You know last year. The Putnam flowers came and they did They got to clip from the garden. Which I was very jealous. And they got beautiful Peonies and had a you know a display which was really fun and this year. They were GonNa have deborah calm and talk about slow flowers. Yes Oh my gosh. And we're going to have a luncheon that would include all the center we're going to be designed by local slow flowers members and I guess that was part of the fundraiser. As well and right maybe they were gonNA give them away or some or auction them off. I'm not sure I don't remember those details anyway. The event is called flower power this year. It is now rescheduled for September. I'll put those details in the show notes at debris printing dot com. And I will get to Saint Louis and I will get to see when person again Jessica but in in honor of this big scheduled disruption in our lives. I thought we could get on on an episode of the podcast and just talk about what's going on with you and flowers and weeds. Tell us just give us well? I I'll stop and say there's a wonderful interview that I recorded with you in person in two thousand sixteen when we first met it's combined with a episode with an interview with Vicky Lander Flower Hill farm also Missouri Flower farmer. So I'll share a link to that in today's show notes but So you can get caught up to speed if you want to go back in here that back story but give us a snapshot of what what flowers and weeds is right now. And then we'll talk about how you've been coping with the pandemic so we are a lower and garden shop We have a lot of indoor house plants and a lot of linked terrariums and cool glassware. And Make Your own little station And then the outdoor Garden Center We sell veggies herbs annuals perennials native. And then we have our Cut Flower Garden so we just built Eighteen very large raised beds And have a huge project in the garden this year in February and we're geared up to grow a lot of flowers this summer which is very exciting and then we have a perennial lot that we've been planting in is probably ten blocks away or so So cutting garden is growing and growing And then we yeah. We got the wedding flowers going on but as of right now it's we don't have any wedding flowers going on. Well you're really a hybrid because you will first of all I recall you got into the business really through designing a terrariums. So plants have always been at the core of the flowers and weeds product. Offering right yes. I would say first and foremost I was a florist I and then I started working in garden shops and you know designing in plants more and then You know it's like am I just designing this? 'cause I could just grow it would be cheaper and it would be easier. It would be better for the environment and then it just you know I I guess I Spent a lot of years trying to think of what I wanted to do. And then I just kind of ended up doing all of the things that you know. We have a lot of different sides of the business you too well. It's so interesting because you're right in the heart of the city and yet you've been able to access growing land in a couple different parcels. Which is what is it. Because your neighborhood was sort of had been kind of slow to redevelop or what? Despoil Abraham a lot Saint Louis South City It's really beautiful. Lots of beautiful old brick buildings But a lot of them. Have you know it's been torn down and are just lots set along to the city R. A lot are very affordable or You can rent it for five years for five dollars here so Land is not as precious as other places Well I mean I think precious right just not it doesn't go for the real estate in New Yorker Co our something just success It's very accessible and Also we use a city on fire hydrant. Keys so We get free water from the city for our garden Which is also something that I assume California. Is You know. I told people from California that and they're just like completely legit. You're allowed to do this right. Oh are older woman. Set it up. Our older woman is and aldermen. They're very accessible as well. They're amazing people We're fortunate enough on Cherokee to have like two alder People so They're just you know alien in touch with the neighborhood that's nice. What was the term you used about the L. are something slots is that mean like vacant or l? Ra is They are just owned by the city. they are usually just lots But there's sometimes houses And I think the Land Redistribution Act Ellerey That makes you know. Wow so if you live next to Anelle are a lot. You can buy it for a dollar. So how many lots do you actually own with? The business Well our shop is on three parcels. But it's just one One address And then we have the kid cock lot just to while And then you did talk about the wedding business sort of being on hold but up until this year you you had a full service. Floral Design and event studio attached to the retail nursery and garden. Center right yeah so You know with a budding industry. We've just been doing a lot of like quick elopement wedding or something like small words just like she wants a little bouquet or couple nears for something that was already planned But you know. And we're we're booking definitely for next year so we'll see what happens so many questions on that one. Is this cutting garden? That you've put so much love and energy to really get established. How do you feel about all those flowers that are already in the ground? I've sure in your mind when you were planting you were thinking about particular clients. Who had to major in July weddings Well you know I the other side of the business Floral business the like everyday flowers and You know that actually is going strong and people are I think in real mead of That friendly lovely reminder. That's flowers are when you send someone something like there's been a few times where something terrible happens and people right now. They can't get together and so all you can think of to do is send flowers. You know So we have. We have kind of laid off of Just of doing deliveries right now. We are only offering floral pickups and we are offering we just did a big mother's Day thing where we did delivery and pick ups But it's just online next day picked up right now as well as all of the retail. Because what we've been focused on mainly right now is garden center sales We've never sold so much soil in her life while the amount of herbs that we've gone through the Basil's just like it's really encouraging to see that side of the business Flourish during all of this is that means people are in their garden and they're using small businesses more and more because they don't want to go to lows right now. So wow but yeah so. We're going to relaunch.

All About Virtual Therapy
"Thanks so much for joining me for session. One fifth of the therapy for black girls podcast as many people are now beginning to work with their therapist. Virtually a might be looking so work with the therapist for the first time it will be meeting with them. Virtually I thought it'd be a great time to rewind and share this interview. I did with Melissa Douglas again as she has been providing virtual services in her Saint Louis Practice for the past couple of years. Melissa is the owner of goal driven counseling a private Tele Mental Health counseling practice where she supports teens and millennials challenging educational career and life transitions through secure videoconferencing. She's a native of Chicago Illinois but has called St Louis Missouri home for almost a decade. She's a proud Triton who received a best of social work degree master of social work degreen and also as a ticket in nonprofit management in leadership from the University of Missouri Saint Louis. She's a licensed clinical social worker and a distance credentialed counselor who has diverse volunteer work experience with us in juvenile detention community based and educational settings. Melissa and I discussed some of the differences between traditional in virtual therapy. How you can decide if it's right for you how to find a virtual therapist and she shared all of her favorite APPs for Mensa weld is if you hear something that resonates with you are listening. Please share with us on social media using the HASHTAG. Tgi In session. Here's our conversation. Thank you so much for joining us today. Listen thank you for having me Dr Joy. I'm very happy you were able to join us today. Because I know there have been a lot of questions about people looking Virgil at therapy or if they live like in a town that's further from a big city and they're not like a lot of therapists they're people are wanting to know do therapist offer virtual action so. I know that you have a completely online practice and this way correct. Yes so you are the perfect person to talk with us about some of these concerns so I can you tell us a little bit. About what virtual therapy is and how? It might be different from traditional therapy. Yes so it's very basic in so we're gonNA talk about has basically tele mental health and virtual therapy because there's a whole other section of just telemedicine that covers a lot of different professionals by talents evolve. Israeli when the clinician and the client are in different physical locations using technology to communicate pretty much and so it's referred to eat therapy virtual therapy online therapy distance counseling. And what I tell. Clients is Dora virtual counseling or virtual therapy sessions. We can do almost everything other than I can't handle a tissue if you start to cry at a time and I can't be a physical support in a crisis but because I use all video and actual platform designed for telehealth. It helps me to have the same relationship report to be developed and the resources to be used. Because I can share my screen. With people's we can work through resources things together in actually see worksheets and stuff like that. I can have more than one person in a session with me. So couples counseling family. Counseling can be just the same as as traditional therapy but when you talk about Tele Mental Health. There are other options other than video. So you have phone counseling as well as a synchronous methods. Such as email and text based counseling. And so all that means is that you there are not live communicating. So you may send a message and you have to wait until the counseling therapists can respond to that. And then you go back and forth that way. And so with those methods there has to be a comfort with communicating fillings in POPs in a in a written format but the largest difference. Is that the responsibility of ensuring privacy of the session is a little bit more shifted to the client because they're in their own space but I always share that tell them will help isn't better or superior methods to traditional counseling. It's really all about appropriateness and our preference so it sounds like it is very similar to coming into the Office for therapy except that you might be in your home. Like in Pajama Bottoms. So what kind of feedback have you gotten from your clients? Melissa about whether be you know like like it better or worse than traditional therapy. Like what kind of feedback have you gotten so again like I said it's all about preference but I received a lot of great from our clients because again because I use the video base we really are able to establish the same relationship and report because we can still see and feel each other's personality we can hear the to- now with the end we can see affect from each other and so it's a little bit more van just communicating written format? And so we're able to really Bill at relationship. They also enjoy the flexibility. It allows in their schedules as well as the convenience of just having to log on. And I'm right there. They don't have to travel or really fit it into their schedule. In addition to travel and things like that but I always share with people who are a little bit unsure about telehealth. Because you know honestly it's it's still a fairly new thing. It's been around for about thirty years and we talk about the telemedicine space but for Tele mental health. I think it's gaining more traction in the last ten years more visibility and so. I always tell people that it's been researched for effectiveness in solid in the early two thousands. There were a lot of different studies but a couple that I like. I like to share is added. Two thousand one. A study was conducted by the Department of Psychiatry at Washington University. Here in Saint Louis. So patients quickly adapt and establish report because the basics of relationship building. Is there with telehealth? And then there was another one another study done in two thousand five by a psychologist from northwestern university who conducted trials that show that clients living with depression tended to stay in counseling longer and saw a larger reduction in symptoms by participating on counseling. And so I like people to know that. There is research back to the effectiveness of elements of health and virtual. Yeah I mean and I'm glad you brought that up right. Because that he is I think another benefit of virtual therapy is you know sometimes one of the more significant symptoms of depression is like not wanting to move and not wanting to leave your house so if you can talk with your therapist via you know your laptop or your tablet then you can still participate in treatment in you know may receive some benefits from the treatment that you wouldn't have if you stayed home. Yeah absolutely as well as the social anxiety is as well and we know that. That's the largest mental health illness in the world and so police will stay in the US and so that's also a great benefit as well. And I think it is important for us to mention that this is not jumping on facetime with your therapist right so it's not like your therapist will just facetime call you and you just answer. These are very are at least therapist should be using hippo compliant software and platforms that will increase the security of the session. Correct absolutely yes. Yeah so there are precautions that your therapist should be taking but like you mentioned you know like if you decide to have your session and you know your partner is like right next to you. Then you're compromising you're all confidentiality but your therapist is taking the repercussions. They need to make sure the session is. Yes absolutely. You got you okay. So what kinds of consideration should somebody consider if they're thinking about virtual therapy like what kinds of things might be WANNA think about? Yes so I always say that. The virtual therapy is the method in which we're doing the actual therapy. You definitely want to consider the expertise of the clinician if their focus is what you need and saw. You WanNa make sure that that the actual option is not the main thing that the person if you're experiencing depression or anxiety that that actual clinician that's offering the virtual therapy specializes in those things. Another huge thing because of the the lack of geographical barriers would tell them it's a health. We WanNa make sure that the commission has licensed in the state that you resign him because legally required men. So that's a misconception that a lot of people have is that because we give us our phones or computers and things like that that we can work with anybody and that's not true. Also I tell people to do a real self assessment and consider if they would be comfortable sansom on from a distance the end because the confident the impact of separate therapeutic space is really important to some people in Psalm as well as thinking about if you have a support person that is is nearing assessable if there is ever an emergency situation and so that's not something that was mentioned yet but emergency planning. It's something that is very important when it comes to tell them health because if a client were to experience at some time some suicidal thoughts or things like that there has to be an emergency management plan in place that that usually includes a emergency support person near the town of triage. That with the therapist in the end client should be feel free to access their tele mental health therapist or counselor has completed any chiming in so some states required in Psalm. Donning in you also share that you know it's not just jumping on facetime call. Any really really speaks to the clinician operating in their areas of competence. Which is a a safeguard for the client and the client should be comfortable and aware of talking about that with the clinician. Yeah and like you said all the states don't require it but you know it does feel like most therapist who are doing significant amount of virtual. Therapy are tele. Mental Health have completed at least some like trainings in maybe even some additional certifications. Yes yeah so. Can you talk a little bit more about the emergency planning because I know that that is something that often comes up and I think something that you know frightened some therapists away from maybe wanting to do elements? Health is like okay. We'll do I do in case of an emergency. So can you talk a little bit about with their processes like with you? And your clients. Yes so assessment of fit is very important so when a client contacts me for consultation. We're having that initial call. I'm usually doing a brief assessment at that time and so I'm assessing if they are at high risk of currently having suicidal thoughts or have had a plan or intent also assessing for any homicide Any active substance use Any delusions around technology and so that means some people experience thoughts and things that someone is spying on their computer things like that. So that wouldn't be comfortable in a therapeutic face if that's some concerns as well as some complex traumas in some those are some things that I quickly assess floor in consultation with also the assessment phase and so with the emergency planning share with clients that if any safety issue were to come up and we'll just speak about the the suicidal thoughts and things like that. If that was ever be concerned that I definitely openly share with them. That is my ethical responsibility to call the police to do a wellness check and things like that but I also wanted to be a little bit more comfortable for them too so we talk about any support people that they have in their life that has click access to them. And so if it is a spouse work is a parent that they would give me permission to disclose and contact them and say that. I am their therapist in Bay are having a very hard time right now and if they could check on them. I remain on the phone or in a session with my client during that time but then I also triage with the support. Person is what okay so it is very similar to what you would do if you were meeting with the person in your office absolutely but unfortunately they have the ability to hang up and disconnect right thank you know they have the Leave your office. Like I've had clients that leave. You know like just abruptly into session if you know things are not going the way they want us something. So they're still option even in real life. That's true yeah so Melissa does insurance. Pay For ritual therapy yes. There are many insurance companies that pay for virtual usually equivalents of the cost traditional but it varies state to state and it also varies between insurance companies as well and so I always tell people the best thing to do is to contact their ensure to ask about the the details of their specific plans. Okay Okay and so if that is something that is going to be like a priority like if using your insurance

Savior is one of thirteen children who have been shot dead in Saint Louis this year alone many like him simply caught in crossfire people show up when a black is already dead and it's a hash constrain you or something is on fire nobody wants to do the work to prevent those things from actually happening but this is it just a story about the horrifying impact of gun violence it is about a community rising up to demand change from the Guardian I'm Donna today and focus why so many black children being shot dead in one US city what do people who know Exurbia you Sanga say about him what kind of Kate was the people who you exit you're Songa said that he was this really bright happy kid who have always smiling guardian US reporter Amanda Hope recently traveled John Lewis to report on the number of black children killed in gun violence every time he walked into a room he was always looking to give people hug even if he had just seen someone thirty minutes ago he'd still run up look at them and expect a hug he was really close to his older sisters and they used to just wander around the neighborhoods and Paul called them the welcoming committee because they went up introduce themselves every new person that would share whatever they learned about them with everyone else in the neighborhood what happened the day he died so the day Xavier died the day before school was about to begin he was with his sisters angel who is twelve and Trinity who is ten and they had just gone to a neighbor's house they were just walking back it was about five him and shots rang out the girls said but they dropped to the floor and then ran inside their home that's when they realized that their brother wasn't with them they turned back he was on the ground and they said they looked at him and he took one last breath and was gone why did you go to Saint Louis we went to Saint Louis because since April thirteen children have been shot to death some of these kids were two three years old a lot of them were playing outside their homes somewhere with family somewhere by themselves somewhere in really public readings with the children it started in April with Canaan Johnson a two year old who was killed in his home in her arms police found the body of Christina Curry in a high school parking Korean sixteen year old was shot near her high school to Shawn Johnson Sixteen year

fourth grade and was gearing up for a big birthday celebration Santino Cox eighteen year old was killed in the street nears home with balloons in their hands and grief in their heart to family and friends of fifteen year old said Tonio Cox March to the sea where his body was found like God is heartbreaking to do we know what's going on there are a lot of factors that people you are blaming for these killings the neighborhoods these children live in our poor dangerous they've been overlooked for very long time confidence is common there's a lot of people saying that there are a lot of guns on the street and there's also this level of hopelessness that means people feel like resolving conflict with a gun dots find way to deal with things and the consequences of doing that aren't that high there's just this feeling that all of these kids were in the wrong place at the wrong time the circumstances of where they grew up have put them in a dangerous position what's going on in Saint Louis so saintly risks it's a lot smaller than along big cities that people think of but per happe- There's more people being killed there than in Chicago Detroit Baltimore it's wrapped with poverty it's deeply segregated when we arrived we were driving around you turn off a main road into these neighborhoods and suddenly you see crumbled buildings empty watts drug addicts in the playgrounds and this is all in the afternoon it's very shocking that city can be like this one the wealthiest countries in the world what sort of adds to the shock is that you're in these neighborhoods and then you can drive seven minutes out of them you're in a neighbor hood where the streets are clean the plants are well manicured there's plenty of people walking around there's nice restaurants bookstores can't hear the sounds of gunfire this in-between the north side and West is right in the middle of audible she didn't happen a-block over drugs being so people being shot I went around with these activists Rica Tyler I'm a mother of two kids it's too little black boys so I thought it was my duty to speak up for the kids and the partner Tito is no opportunity opportunity they both grew up in the north side of St Louis which is predominantly which is much poorer than the south side we went to one of these nicer neighborhoods and they were pushing the stroller of their five-month-old child in this neighborhood because this is where it's safe to do that skyscrapers construction nice plants landscape warning the son even shines brighter I mean this is not a joke this is reality people in so no trash you don't worry about smelling pissed or seeing feces all over the ground okay. Homeless people won't vote recurrent Dabo into activism do that Rica said that moment activated her was over five years ago there were a couple of high profile killings of black men by police officers and the one that sort of aw huge amount of tension in the United States and also across the world with Mike Brown there is growing outrage tonight after an unarmed African American teenager was Brown was unarmed eighteen year old who's walking to a convenience sore when he was shot by a police officer who was killed in Ferguson a suburb of Saint I just of Different Ages and races demanding answers in the shooting death of eighteen year old Michael Brown at the hands of a policeman this is bigger than what just happened here in Ferguson this is a real problem react sleet lived nearby where he was killed people she knew him she pictures of his body in the street on her facebook feed police shucked is boy outside my apartment and just felt like she had to go out and speak up for her community. I didn't really know what I needed to do but I knew I had to be out there so the next day actually I was at Ferguson police department demanding answers what happened who's a police officer our charge is GonNa come out we sat in the middle of the road and I remember that was like my I like sit down I was screaming sitting down for Michael Brown and we stayed out there for hours they both on the front line he's those protests which lasted for weeks happened about five years ago this and it really shifted the conversation in the United States I think the reason that the organizers use the phrase black life matters was not because they were suggested nobody else's lives matter rather what they were suggesting was there is a specific problem that is happening the African American community that's not happening another to force the media and politicians to reckon with the reality of policing in black communities as well as the underlying issues of poverty and what kind of job opportunities are available health outcomes exist it was a really galvanizing moment for a lot of people in the United Sates including Rica and Tito but it feels as if five years on lives in Saint Louis still not valid in often a huge amounts of problems what approach they taking now to their activism of education it was really shocking to see how the center of all of this has had so few games we see the issues and we attacked and we'd be proactive instead of reactive I don't Wanna see on twitter that another kid is dead and I gotta show up and protests and sing songs hoping that they stop killing us I wanNA ah the variables that create the conditions that make it okay to kill us so that's what we started doing they provide food to poor communities and I think so after all these children were killed she was really concerned about the mental health of the community this is just general nations of trauma that's been happening for years and years to come and no one and feared that there weren't enough resources available and she held this big town hall I created family townhall where I wanted to you know have a safe space for people to just come and tell their stories she invited block psychiatrists social workers for an anyone who was feeling upset about the killings to just come and talk she said that there were teenagers there who had really been impacted by the gun violence in their community but never felt that they could talk about the emotional aspect of it and also a mother of one of the children who died the sixteen year old why is it that so many of these killings are unresolved first of all it does not seem like the city or state government has been that children each I want to announce today that we have secured a twenty five thousand dollar reward for information leading to the arrest best of individuals responsible for the.
