ABOUT US

Welcome to Brave Police and Public Safety Wellness Center, a distinguished mental wellness center that provides high-quality services to law enforcement and other first responders who dedicate their lives to serving and protecting others.

About us Brave Wellness Center

As a Board-Certified Police and Public Psychologist, we ensure that our esteemed team takes pride in offering a range of services that cater to law enforcement and other first responders’ unique needs. We offer individual, group, and family counseling that address addiction, mood disorders, family and work-related matters involving critical incidents, duty-related trauma and all other work stressors. Our services include all first responders and those with military backgrounds. This includes police, firefighter, paramedics, EMT’s, dispatch, and corrections.

Our team comprises highly trained and experienced therapists, interns, and health professionals with expertise in various therapeutic techniques, including neurofeedback, clinical hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), stress management and a host of other treatment modalities. We have certified yoga instructors to provide yoga for first responders as well and breathwork to alleviate stress. We are also skilled in conducting fitness-for-duty evaluations, FOID reinstatement, duty disability pre-employment testing, arbitration and expert testimony services.

We have successfully implemented stress management seminars for law enforcement agencies and provided consultation services to help develop Officer Wellness programs. Our training includes Basic and Advanced Peer Support courses, Team Building, Resiliency and Integrity Training, and Critical Incident Stress Debriefings (CISM).

Our top priority is to create a safe and welcoming environment that fosters healing and resilience, allowing first responders to receive the care and support they need to cope with the unique stresses of their profession.

In addition to our exceptional services, we offer Road to Resiliency, an Intense Outpatient Program (IOP), a higher level of care for those first responders struggling with trauma and/or addiction.

We at Brave Police and Public Safety Wellness Center are committed to providing our courageous first responders, who sacrifice selflessly on our behalf, the highest standard of care, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
