About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide competent, professional services to public safety professionals in the form of counseling/psychotherapy, psychological assessments and consultations, critical incident stress management, and effective, proactive training and education to enhance job fulfillment, overall wellness, and longevity

Our History

“After experiencing two consecutive traumatic incidents in a four-month period early in my career as a trooper, I learned through personal experience how devastating work-related stress can be on one’s emotional, psychological, and physical health. As I progressed through my 25-year career, I realized how grossly under serviced public safety professionals are in the area of culturally competent behavioral health services, which fueled my desire to obtain the necessary education, training, and state licensure to effectively provide these critical services”.
