Access To Quality Mental Health Care Is Our Mission
Sharon Young, Ph.D, LCSW
Post 9/11 Veteran Services
Over the past two decades, a small percentage of volunteers have carried the burden of direct participation in U.S. Global Wars. Specifically, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have left this cross section of our society to deal with the impacts of an unprecedented number of deployments, extended service tours, and extended combat deployments. The major impacts of these experiences often result in difficulties maintaining personal and professional relationships, managing emotions, and controlling sleep. Thousands of veterans nationwide are struggling with these issues and too often do not know where to turn for help. Our clinical staff understands that seeking help may be difficult and will support and guide you through the process.
There is limited space available for free counseling for veterans with a therapist who understands the unique experiences of veterans. Our veterans’ specialist will focus on your deployment experiences and provide each veteran the support they need. You may be skeptical about meeting with a civilian therapist, we get it. Our veteran’s specialist, Sharon, will not be shocked or surprised by your deployment experiences. Unlike other civilian therapists, there is no need to explain military culture or lingo; it is understood and well received.
Still unsure? Contact New Milford Counseling Center at 860-740-2228 and ask to speak with Sharon Young, our military specialist.
