The Military-Civilian Transition Is Easier Said Than Done

  • Do you have a hard time making decisions?
  • Do you ask yourself, how will I fit in?
  • Has your transition been harder than you thought?

You are far from alone, as studies have shown that at least 20% of veterans suffer from PTSD and/or depression.

If you are among that 20% you can turn to our DBT program to help you quiet things down and bring you peace. The program is designed to address the unique challenges facing veterans, using a trauma-informed approach to therapy. It can help you restore your sense of personal discipline and responsibility and provide you with an opportunity to retake control over your life.

Our Program Director Can Relate

Mike, our program director for veterans services, served in Naval Aviation from 1973-1977, working as a flight deck troubleshooter on aircraft carriers. He was stationed near Washington and experienced firsthand the personal code of responsibility – to and for others – that’s expected in the military. This is the same code of responsibility that will guide him in his interactions with you in our DBT program.

He has experienced the ups and downs that come with transitioning from military to civilian life; he understands the challenges facing veterans, including PTSD, isolation, self-medicating with alcohol and drugs, and the impact on loved ones. His DBT practice is dedicated to fulfilling the unmet need for services to help veterans in their post-military lives.
