Louisville has a long and rich history. For instance, Louisville was a major stronghold for Union forces during the Civil War, keeping Kentucky firmly in the Union. The city was also the center for planning, recruiting, supplies and transportation. Fortunately, Louisville was never attacked, but had skirmishes around the city. The Confederate veterans took control of the city after war. In 1875, the first Kentucky Derby was held. Meriwether Lewis Clark Jr., the grandson of William Clark of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, created the derby.1 The weather in Louisville is a humid, subtropical climate with the summers hot and humid with an average rainfall of approximately 44 inches a year. The winter sees snow usually in January and February. However, due to its location, the area can see a wide variety of temperatures and weather during any season, such as tornadoes, ice storms or thunderstorms, along with severe hot and cold temperatures. The location of city traps air pollution, exemplifying the heat island effect, which is where temperatures in commercial areas are higher than in the suburbs, or where there is more shade lowering temperatures.

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Louisville, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Louisville may have flexibility or sliding scales
