Veterans/Service Members and Military Families

I am a military brat who was born abroad on a  military base in Germany and traveled the United States moving from base to base with my parents. Living with the experience of making friends quickly or deciding not to because I know I will not be there very long. Based on my experience of seeing and feeling the sacrifices military members make for our country. I have spent more than eight years working at the Department of Veteran Affairs to say “thank you.”  

I work with veterans and active service members to treat readjustment issues such as learning how to transition from a military culture back into civilian culture. Moreover, helping veterans learn how to reintegrate back into their home and family. Furthermore, allowing you and your partner to better communicate with each other and adjust with you being home and taking an active role in your relationship and family. Lastly, treating veterans like you with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and suicidal thoughts.  

Thank you again for the physical, emotional, psychological, and familial sacrifices you and your family have made so the American family can be safer.
