We offer therapy for first responders and their families. This includes law
enforcement, fire fighters, emergency personnel, 911 dispatchers, etc. Your
hard work and sacrifice are appreciated here.
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. So may frown upon you admitting to these feelings
or experiences. 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.
EMDR and Trauma
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a powerful tool that
we can use in therapy.It allows us to treat
trauma including PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) more quickly and
effectively.It can also be used to address
smaller things that we face in our lives.
