First Responders & Military
We recognize that First Responders (the term First Responder refers to anyone trained to respond to an emergency) and Veterans experience situations and see things that are unique to the field and therefore require a counselor that is skilled to serve this population. Kenni Uribe, LCSW, is one of 6 Certified First Responder Counselors in the state of Arizona and was also an active duty member of the military. She provides a respectful, trustworthy, and safe environment for you to receive the mental health services that you deserve.
First Responders and Veterans often experience issues with relationships, depression, PTSD, substance abuse and other addictions, and suicidal ideation.
- First responders are 5 times more likely to experience depression and PTSD. *
- Law enforcement officers and firefighters are more likely to die from suicide than in the line of duty*
- An estimated 22 veterans die by suicide each day, that is one veteran every 65 minutes.
Several treatment options are available including EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy. We recognize the difficulties in reaching out to someone outside of your brother/sisterhood and respect you for taking these difficult steps to get the help you need.
