My Approach to Helping

The unique first responder population can benefit from working collaboratively with a professional who is culturally competent and understands the ins and outs of emergency service work. I have worked with, for and around emergency services my entire life and understand the common stressors and needs of these hard-working, unique folks.

The specific needs and stressors for fire, EMS and other public safety professionals typically focus around prolonged exposure to trauma and very irregular sleep cycles. PTSD and EMDR are hot topics. But what is right for you? Getting an evaluation and engaging in counseling services will custom tailor the best treatment just for you, whatever the issue.

If you are working in public safety and have been looking for a counselor who can relate, who understands bad calls, shift work, and the culture of your industry please reach out and see if we might work well together. I have met so many folks who had a bad experience with a counselor who just didn't understand the public safety and gave up. Don't give up yet!

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

I would venture to guess the therapist you saw simply wasn't culturally competent with the first responder population. I've heard stories about EAP therapists crying when a client started to get into the nitty gritty of their calls! There are so many amazing therapists out there, you just need to find the one that's right for you. Some therapists will be excellent to work with even if they don't have specialty training in the first responder population. It may be helpful to seek out clinicians who do have some specialty training with first responders and public safety because it increases the chances of that good fit.
