 Advocacy for Veteran Mental Health & Trauma

I come from a long line of military heros.  My great-great grandfather was in the Civil War, my grandfather served in the Army with the Military Police during WWII, my father was a medic with the Army Reserves, my Great- Uncle was in the Navy during the attack on Pearl Harbor, and I am the wife of a retired Army Colonel who served for over 25 years. Military runs on all sides of my family.  I have lived this life, longer than I haven't, with over 25 years of experience. I get it. 


I have a strong appreciation for what our men and women do for this country and the sacrifices they make.  Their sacrifices can leave invisible scars that hold them captive, frozen in time, stuck with memories that won't leave and keep coming. 


I have extensive training in trauma and military combat issues, that have equipped me with tools and skills to effectively help people navigate their trauma.  I have dedicated the majority of my professional life to serving our heroes, giving back, listening, walking, and supporting them during some of their darkest days.  I've learned the clouds part, the sun does come back out and many are able to recapture some of the joy they at one time had.  I integrate several evidenced based approaches, such as Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy,  Post Traumatic Growth approaches, and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is an integrative therapy that helps people heal from Traumatic events as well as, life disturbing experiences.  


The key is meeting people where they are.  I do.  I will continue to do so. Let me walk with you through your storm.
