Witnessed a lot of trauma?
Seen the unthinkable?
Repetitive experiences of disturbing events can be
emotionally and physically exhausting.
Do any of these sound familiar?
FIRST RESPONDER ONLINE COUNSELING was created after a conversation
with my brother, pictured left, about the disproportionately high number of
suicides in the first responder community.
I asked him if his department provided any type of Suicide Prevention training and
he mentioned they once had a seminar facilitated by a fellow firefighter.
My next question was whether he noticed a decline in the suicide rate or felt
this training was effective. His answer was that the firefighter who ran
the seminar took his life shortly thereafter.
That's not acceptable. In fact, that's bullshit.
That conversation made me wonder if first responders (firefighters, police, medics,
911 dispatch, ER staff) were getting their needs met.
In order to help fill the gap, and hopefully work towards stoping the stigma
of getting therapy,I started FIRST RESPONDER ONLINE COUNSELING.
We don't have to do touchy-feely, we can just shoot strait with
short-term, solution-focused therapy.
You don't have to suffer any longer.
Are you ready to get back to your old self?
