Military Family Support Services

CCS Provides supportive services, counseling and classes for active duty, reservist, National Guard or retired military and their families who have served and/or experienced trauma, especially on or after September 11, 2001. Our commitment is to create healthier communities by serving those in need – regardless of faith, race, gender, or economic status.

Treatment that Works

EMDR— Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing, an effective therapy used to heal stressful symptoms caused by trauma.

Equine Assisted Therapy—A proven therapy technique using horses to help rebuild trust. Horses are a prey animal, and like those who’ve served in combat, have a heightened sense of survival. Together Soldier and Horse work together create a safe emotional environment to share.

TRM—Trauma Resiliency Model teaches skills that identify the biological responses to trauma along with ways to restore balance to mind and body. The TRM’s motto is, “It does not have to be an ordeal to heal.”
