First responders include Police, Ambulance officers, paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT), Firefighters, News Reporters and some other professions.
Witnessing traumatic situations can be distressing. Counseling can help prevent the development of Post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.
Trauma can cause you to have reoccurring memories 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.
