Veterans and Active Duty

Within the Military and Veteran culture, the stigma of asking for help and support is still strong and it may be difficult to feel connected to people who have no knowledge of the culture and the concept of the positions you were in. We understand the unique values and aspects of this culture, which is vital in providing you superior treatment and support.

Serving in the military, or having a loved one who has served, can expose a person to a wide range of traumatic experiences that can lead to several conditions like:

Common signs of these conditions include:

These conditions are normal reactions to abnormal situations but it is important to know that healing is possible and symptoms can be decreased with the proper support and treatment.

The Military and Veteran program focuses on bringing cultural competency to therapy and therapeutic approaches for this special population.

Whether active duty, reserves, or a veteran, we are here to provide you with the support that you have already more than earned. It is our honor to serve those who have served.
