Many active duty and military veterans experience mental health problems including but not limited to PTSD, depression, anxiety, substance abuse and traumatic brain disorders. Due to the traumatic environment in which active military serve, veterans are at a significantly higher risk of developing mental health issues. These concerns can often be addressed and resolved by a qualified mental health professional.
Local Experts in Veterans/Military Service
Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Couples Therapy, Individual Therapy
Having spent the last 15 years working with Veterans and Military Personnel in the Veterans Health Administration, I have significant expertise in understanding military culture and addressing common difficulties faced by Veterans (including combat trauma, depression, and anxiety).
I have 11+ years of working with veterans with PTSD, depression, and anxiety at the Department of Veterans Affairs. I'm trained in numerous evidence-based treatments that are supported by research to bring you relief quickly, and to get your life back following combat exposure, military sexual trauma, and other distressing life events.
Individual Therapy, Couples Therapy, Group Therapy
I am military service-oriented as a result of growing up in a military family, and then marrying a serviceman who served in the Army and suffered from PTSD, alcoholism and was abusive.
Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Child Therapy, Group Therapy, Individual Therapy
I have additional training and conducted research in the area of combat trauma. Unfortunately, service members have difficulties reintegrating into civilian life which often leads to ongoing difficulties coping with the past and moving forward. I focus on helping veterans access supports and participate in healthy, meaningful daily activities. The key is to go slow and take one step at a time.
