At Freedom Within Center we understand the unique challenges our military folks face!
Military Counseling at Freedom Within
Being part of the military, whether as an individual or a couple, brings with it unique challenges that are different from those experienced by civilians. Sometimes those challenges can become overwhelming. At Freedom Within Center, we are familiar with what you’re experiencing. We have therapists with extensive experience providing military counseling to both active duty service members as well as veterans and their families. Additionally, many of our counselors have spouses, siblings or family members who have served, so they know first-hand some of the very struggles you may be facing. We are trained in evidence-based treatments for this unique population which equips us with the tools to effectively treat these concerns.
Whether you are looking for individual counseling or military couples therapy, we can work with you to develop a plan that will help alleviate the pain and bring you closer to that person you once were or the person you want to become. With military counseling, we can help you to meet these challenges and overcome the obstacles in front of you.
There are many pressing issues for individuals in the military. Freedom Within Center military counseling can help with post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, anger management, trauma reactions, grief and loss and relationship issues. We can also help reconnect people with family, friends and society as a whole. We recognize that these kinds of concerns are unique to military personnel and we have the experience to help you manage them in the best way possible. We also have gold star training and certification in most of the evidence based treatments used at the Veterans Affairs facilities including Prolonged Exposure therapy (PE), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Individual Military Counseling for Veterans and Active Duty
Are you troubled by some of the experiences you had during deployments, or the losses you may have encountered? Maybe you are not sleeping well, having nightmares or just find yourself more on edge. Or perhaps you are just tired of the military lifestyle or the difficulty in adjusting to civilian life after service. It takes a lot of strength to overcome lengthy deployments, long-term separation from family, relocation and other issues that might arise as the result of various duty assignments. In addition, you may be struggling with anxiety, depression or post-traumatic stress. That’s where individual or couples military counseling can help. We have a genuine passion for helping those who have helped us and feel it is our duty to serve you.
Military Couples Therapy in San Diego
Military couples, whether married, engaged or dating, also face many unique challenges. These challenges might be long-term separation, financial stressors, frequent moving and difficulty reintegrating into the civilian workplace. Not to mention that the potential for suicide is of major concern. This is why it is so important to seek out help! It can take a lot of courage to serve one’s country, it can also take a lot of courage to be able to seek out help, but it might just be the “life change” that you need.
Choosing individual or couples military counseling with Freedom Within Center can help with many of these issues. It can also help to educate civilian spouses or significant others around the signs and symptoms of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress (or PTSD) and suicide.
We’re here to help you help yourself live the life you were meant to live. You have served to protect our freedoms and we want to serve you to restore that sense of freedom within yourself. To get in touch with one of our expert military therapists, request an appointment.
