Counseling for Veterans, Police Officers and Firefighters - Indianapolis
You've been considering counseling for a long time but you figured it would get better on it's own and you could just drive on. You were taught to adapt and overcome but you've been having a hard time shaking this. Sometimes you feel like you're just plain weak.
You finally decide to make an appointment. You call around and the wait is months, they don't take your insurance or have no understanding of the military or what it's like to be a First Responder. You don't want to sit and have to explain every acronym or feel censored. You just want to feel understood and get help now.
As an Army Veteran I specialize in treating Veterans,EMS, Firefighters, Police Officers and their spouses. I understand the fears of losing your job for being depressed or anxious, your insurance reporting back to your job or not wanting to work with civilians. I have been working with the military, fire and police community since 2014 and almost 70% of my practice is made up of these populations. If you talk like an 11 Bravo, you're welcome here.
I was deployed in support of Operations Spartan Shield and Inherent Resolve. I spent time working with Soldiers in Kuwait, Iraq and Jordan. My Army career is where I learned how to truly treat trauma and depression to return people back to duty. My clients appreciate my direct but down to earth approach.
Often times, my clients come to me after a spouse or their workplace gives them an ultimatum about going to counseling. It's usually due to some anger outbursts or anxiety. I often see military and first responder couples because this anger has taken a toll on the relationship.
