Supporting First Responders and Military

We are a not for profit peer support group that strives to help preserve the healthy minds of Military / Veterans, Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS, Dispatch, and Nursing through treatment and counseling for depression, suicidal tendencies, and PTSD.

They struggle with the hidden battles fought in their minds on a daily basis. Whether it is the horrors of war, personal injury or a fatal car crash, the effects are everlasting. Over the course of their careers, the stress piles up to sometimes a fatal level.

If you are in need of immediate assistance, call or chat with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline!

What Is Trauma?

Trauma is a psychological, emotional response to an event or experience that is deeply distressing or disturbing. Trauma can refer to any stressful life event that is upsetting to an individual, such as being involved in or witnessing an accident, having an illness or injury, losing a loved one, being criticized, or going through a divorce. However, it can also encompass the far extreme and include experiences that are severely damaging, such as sexual or physical abuse.

Each person experiences and processes stressful life events differently because we see them through the lens of our prior experiences. For example, a person who experienced bullying as a child might have developed the negative belief of “I am not good enough”. Later in life, they will most likely continue to re-experience that same negative belief in everyday situations. EMDR Therapy helps by treating the source of our negative beliefs, assisting us to transform them into positive ones. Through this process we become more resilient and gain confidence in ourselves.
