First Responder Counseling
Here at Dr. Stephen Oreski & Associates, we strongly appreciate what our men and women do for this country and the sacrifices they make. Those sacrifices can often leave invisible scars that hold you captive and impact you in ways you may not understand. Unfortunately, the effects of these experiences can be even more dangerous than a single traumatic event, largely because it is more likely to go unnoticed and untreated.
The decision to seek counseling can be a difficult one. Often, issues of pride may be the obstacle. For first responders, the appearance of weakness or problem-solving challenges may illicit feelings of shame or inadequacy. However, this is not uncommon. The aversion to feelings of vulnerability prevents many people from getting professional help. It can be difficult to admit problems out loud.
We specialize in working with first responders and their families. This includes law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMTs, paramedics, dispatchers, and others. Often it takes first responders an extended period to address the challenges of public service. Unfortunately, many never obtain the help that they need and deserve. The results are often life-changing for those who decide to seek counseling.
