We offer therapy for first responders and their families. This includes law enforcement, fire fighters, emergency personnel, 911 dispatchers, etc.
As a first responder, you struggle with many challenges day to day. You may face the stress of making a split-second decision. You may witness many traumatic things throughout your shift. Some situations may seem more difficult than others. These situations may leave you feeling stressed, having images maybe popping up in your mind (flashbacks), you may be experiencing nightmares, and/or you may feel on alert. Some may frown upon you admitting to these feelings. We offer you a safe space without judgment to work through issues. Your information will be held in confidence.
There is a stigma around mental health and first responders. It is okay to need help dealing with the awful things you have seen and experienced. It does not make you weak, quite the opposite, because most people could not endure what you have witnessed in a given week or even a given day. It takes great strength to tolerate these things. It takes even more strength to ask for help when you need it.
Additionally, police officers are currently facing more negativity than ever! It is a very difficult time to work in this role. You do amazing work and are now facing disrespect. We believe you and your families need more support and resources to cope in this tough time. Whether you are an officer who has decided that it is time to retire or you have decided to stick it out, you may need additional support.
We offer scholarship options for those who need it. Please ask to see if you qualify.
