Do you feel angry all the time and aren't sure why? Are you having recurring nightmares? Intrusive memories and thoughts? Do you avoid activities and places because they remind you of a painful experience? Has it been months or years and you are not getting any better? We chose to serve our country with a career in the military. We trained to be strong. What happens when, despite our best efforts, we are injured?

At times, we all struggle with the inevitable trials of being human. You may be a parent or partner in a significant relationship struggling with connection, and in need of both practical and emotional support. At times, feelings of anxiety, apathy, and depression arise, and feelings of disconnection and loneliness can take hold. For others, we may be at a crossroads in our life, brought about by divorce, relocation, caregiving for a loved one, or a desire to have a bigger impact in our communities and the world. We may be asking ourselves BIG questions, “what’s next”, “what should I do”, and “what do I want from life”.

Do you feel like you’re doing your best but are still stuck in old patterns of anxiety, sadness, or loneliness?
