First Responder Therapy

Specialized Therapy for First Responders

We are providing culturally competent First Responder therapy. In other words, we are experienced professionally and/or personally in working with First Responders on their worst and best days, on and off duty.  

Why Us? Why You?

We provide mental health support for first responders and spouses of first responders. We get the unique experiences and nuances that First Responders deal with in relation to stress and trauma exposure. This ongoing exposure can put you at a greater risk for symptoms of Acute Stress Disorder and PTSD. Untreated /unsupported trauma can quickly accumulate and impact your mood and behaviours, especially if you’re trying to balance the emotional load of being a parent.

You’re likely uniquely positioned to be a caregiver and protector. It can be incredibly draining to balance what you’re exposed to at work and remain soft and caring for your family at home. We’re here to help you with that. The culture within the First Responder community places a lot of pressure on you to keep going, regardless of how tough it is. We’re here to help you gain resilience and mental and emotional strength and to support you through trauma reprocessing. We can help you so that you can continue to help others. 


We accept you as you are; no judgments here.

Training & Experience

We are highly trained in trauma therapy approaches to support you as you support others.


We respect your privacy needs-from the real world to your employer. Everything we talk about stays within our session and is never shared without your permission (Unless we are mandated to report – please see limitations to confidentiality)


We are passionate about working with first responders and breaking the mental health stigma- one session at a time.
