Healthy Minds, Healthy Heroes (HMHH) is providing no-cost counseling services to veterans with PTSD, depression, and anxiety.

The program will also counsel the veteran's family
members as long as the presenting issue relates back to supporting the veteran.

The program is composed of an intake specialist, licensed professional counselors, and licensed clinical social workers. Our counselors are either veterans themselves, or are a part of a veteran family, or have other experience with military culture. Counselors are trained in specific trauma therapies like Cognitive Processing Therapy and Prolonged Exposure Therapy. Counselors are also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Family Therapy informed by the research and work of Dr. John Gottman and Dr. Sue Johnson.

HMHH does not provide medications and is not an emergency service for walk-in clients.

To be eligible for the program, the veteran will need to provide a DD-214 and a photo ID. (HMHH can also help the veteran obtain their DD-214 document.)

A veteran with a dishonorable discharge will not be eligible for this program.

Call with questions or to schedule an appointment.

PTSD can affect a person in many different ways. What many people don’t realize is that an individual can suffer from PTSD, even if they weren’t directly involved in a threatening or scary event. For this reason, there may be many people who aren’t seeking the treatment they need.

At First Step Psychological Services, we are dedicated to helping people of all walks of life receive the PTSD therapy that they need to live a happier, healthier life. We have more than 10 years of experience working with people just like you, and we have the tools needed to combat and work through the root cause of your PTSD.

  • Prolonged Exposure Therapy: At First Step Psychological Services, we use a treatment method called Prolonged Exposure (PE) to help patients work through their PTSD. This treatment is used to help expose an individual to the event that caused them trauma in an effort to better understand their symptoms. 
  • Cognitive Processing Therapy: this is a tool that we use at First Step Psychological Services to help treat PTSD. While PE trauma therapy helps to explore the traumatic situation and feelings themselves, cognitive processing therapy helps to explore the way the traumatic event is interpreted. Our psychologists understand that while the traumatic event may have passed, the feelings can still impact an individual’s daily life.

At First Step, with 10+ years of experience, we guide and educate you to help you improve the overall quality of your daily life with individual counseling to help you focus on your goals and future milestones.

For stress-free, fight-free, sometimes couples counseling comes in handy for you and your partner to better understand each other and look through the foggy clouds formed between both of you due to constant fights or arguments.

Art Therapy Is a form of psychotherapy based on the process of creating visual images through drawing, painting, sculpting, and the use of other art materials. In art therapy, emotions and thoughts are expressed symbolically through the creation of personal imagery. Art bypasses verbal defenses and limitations, allowing for insight to occur in a non-threatening way. The art produced can be reflected upon, and with guidance from the art therapist, one can explore the meaning of the images and work through areas of conflict and distress.

Notice

We are only offering online teletherapy while COVID-19 restrictions remain in place.

All behavior has meaning. It is a way of communicating feelings and needs. So-called problem behavior is one way a child expresses conflict, which is difficult to conceptualize and verbalize. A child can channel and give conceptual form to negative feelings and behaviors through working with art materials. The clarification and responses of an art therapist facilitates the child’s awareness of patterns, intentions, and the meaning of behavior.

A child-centered approach curriculum addresses social and developmental issues for children and teens in the foster care system. This curriculum incorporates culturally-rooted concepts and values of each individual through indigenous teachings, writings, and expressive modalities.

In addition, clients will have the opportunity to learn meditation, guided imagery, and the calming effects of quieting the mind through meditation techniques.

Licensed professional counselors provide confidential psychotherapy sessions to individuals, families, and in group settings to those who are experiencing behavioral, social, or challenging situations as it relates to being in the foster care system. Counseling session objectives are to strengthen personal awareness, nurture, heal, foster positive social changes, improve family communication, and expand and deepen their personal skills needed to help cope with the challenges that come from being the foster care system.

We understand many of the unique issues effecting those suffering from Military sexual trauma. MST is defined by the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) as “sexual harassment that is threatening in character or physical assault of a sexual nature that occurred while the victim was in the military, regardless of geographic location of the trauma, gender of the victim, or the relationship to the perpetrator”, is a significant and pervasive concern in the military. We offer relief from the symptoms of MST.

There are a variety of emotional, behavioral, physical, and mental health issues that have been linked to MST. Primary among these are depression, posttraumatic stress, anxiety, substance dependency, and an increased risk of suicide. Roughly 50-60% of female veterans who experience MST eventually develop posttraumatic stress. This rate is approximately three times higher than male veterans in similar circumstances. Of servicewomen who develop PTSD due to military sexual trauma, an estimated 75% develop co-morbid depression, and over 30% may develop anxiety.

Servicemen who experience posttraumatic stress due to exposure to military sexual trauma are more likely to abuse alcohol, drugs, and other substances than servicewomen who have experienced similar trauma. A study involving more than 2300 male and female military personnel who served in OEF/OIF revealed that sexual harassment was the only stressor that was independently linked to suicidal ideation among female veterans—even when accounting for depression and the misuse of alcohol.

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed…

What is EMDR Therapy? Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from different treatment approaches. How does EMDR work? EMDR therapy is an integrative psychotherapy and uses a technique called bilateral stimulation to repeatedly activate opposite sides of the brain. Therapists often use eye movements to facilitate the bilateral stimulation. These eye movements mimic the period of sleep referred to as rapid eye movement…

Horses can serve as an important tool to move from post traumatic stress to post traumatic growth. Equine Therapy can help the individual build confidence, self- efficiency, communication, trust, perspective, social skills, impulse control, and learn boundaries. Since the horses have similar behaviors with humans, such as social and responsive behaviors, it is easy for the patients to create a connection with the horse. Riders with disabilities demonstrate their remarkable accomplishments in national and international sport riding competitions. Equine-Assisted Therapies have been recognized in the medical and mental health field by most major countries.
