Treatment for Veterans and First Responders

 

  • Therapists in both offices (Ashley, Cari, Kai, Kathy) have specialized training and experience in working with veterans and first responders. Among our therapists, we have many decades of personal and professional experience in matters that are unique to veterans and first responders. We are aware of the unique experiences and concerns you have that are not shared by the general population.

  • For veterans, we accept referrals from your community care case manager at the VA (Department of Veteran Affairs). However, a referral is not required for treatment should you wish to contact us of your own accord. We are in-network with TriWest and UHC-VACCN. To get started, either call our intake number (815.575.9675) or ask your community care case manager to make an outside referral.

  • If you are a law enforcement officer, paramedic, or fire fighter, call our intake number directly. We will walk beside you on your journey to a more peaceful life.
