Trauma can cause you to have reoccuring memomries of the event or situation you witnessed. These memories can cause sleep issues and even affect your ability to do your work or your ability to relate to your co-workers, friends and family.

Just talking about it with a co-worker or friend can cause you to relive the trauma and sometimes make it worse. Our counselors have been trained in special techniques that can help you to process the trauma in a safe and effective way without re-living it. This can help you to move on with your life and sometimes to even grow and develop as a person as a result of this experience.

All counseling sessions are kept strictly confidential as per HIPAA regulations.

Contact us to learn more about first responder counseling so that you can begin to heal today and prevent the possible negative effects of your work.

We look forward to working with you.
