Military Veterans Therapy and Counseling


Today, make an appointment with DrBev, don’t let another minute go by alone.  Soldiers, veterans, civilians, together let’s discuss your “here & now” situation and make a plan to save you emotional time, pain, and suffering, now that you are home and readjusting to society.

Early evidence suggests that the psychological toll of multiply deployments, many of which involved prolonged exposure to combat-related stress over “multiple rotations” may be disproportionately high compared with the physical injuries of combat. Concerns have been most recently centered on two combat related injuries in particular: post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. Many recent reports have referred to these as the signature wounds of the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts. With the increasing concern about the incidence of suicide and suicide attempts among returning veterans, concern about depression is also on the rise.

I too am concerned, committed to  my mission and passions of aiding our Soldiers returning home to our cities and towns. I ask you (society)  to ponder, “What is the emotional impact of the returning soldiers to their children, wives, lovers and society at large?”   My mission is to increase  EMOTION HEALTH KNOWLEDGE.  For example Soldiers who are under-diagnosed or never-diagnosed may be have  Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and is at risk for developing other mental health disorders such as panic, phobias, major depressive disorder, and/or obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Military PTSD is a reality and exists.

Moreover, I am concerned with Military spouses and their need for more information on PTSD; family emotional health treatment needed before, during, and after deployments. Lastly, my heart goes out to the  military children in need of treatment for coping with injured  or deceased parent(s) as a result of war.”

Traditional psychotherapy approaches, focusing on working with and correcting mental events and conditions, have placed little importance on the fundamentally physical nature of the person. Yet many of the problems veterans  bring to therapy are linked with or manifested in the body–such as obesity, psychosomatic distress, chronic tension, sleep issues and sexual problems.

My approach to military veterans mental health can be particularly effective with a range of clients, including survivors of sexual abuse, chemical dependency and other addictions , or those suffering from physical chronic illness.

Creativity, traditionally seen as a special gift of remarkable and exceptional personalities, is considered in Gestalt therapy to be a quality of spontaneous adaptation in interpersonal processes, as well as an important ingredient of healthy social living. This revolutionary concept of creativity is approached in therapy sessions from three aspects: the theoretical foundations, the healing relationship, and applications to certain social issues, such as the couple’s relationship, treating psychosis and understanding children’s emotional suffering.
