Our HOPE4PTSDVETS.ORG Peer Support is offered to any veteran who is in need (via face to face, phone, text, or skype). This support can be individual or group support. As your Certified Peer Support Specialist it is my mission, at the very least, to provide you with hope. If we can accomplish that then the next mission is to determine where the path to healing begins.
If peer to peer support is our foundation then meditation and mindfulness are the shelter of this healing and wellness home. It is through these two practices that the combat vet develops a way to consistently quiet the mind and observe thought and emotion. Practicing these will cultivate space in which the combat veteran can make a choice about how or whether to react to the emotion he or she is experiencing. We will be utilizing the healing and balance program to cultivate mindfulness and deepen meditation.
Now that we have a solid foundation and shelter to protect us, we need to build some rooms. Our coaching program would be the family room since we believe that wellness for combat veterans includes wellness for those who love them.
HOPE4PTSDVETS.ORG believes that wellness coaching is a valuable tool in repairing relationships and developing wellness strategies for veterans and their loved ones who struggle with combat trauma/PTSD. Our coaching philosophy deals with the issues we face in the present moment, not the past. I will NOT ask you about your trauma or combat experiences. I will only ask you for your first name to ensure confidentiality. If you decide you would like to deal with your trauma at some point we have other holistic modalities to assist you.
