What to do now that you’ve been referral to mental health. 

Here’s what I can tell you:

—Regardless of your security clearance, without your written permission or a court order signed by a judge, I can’t even tell people you’re a client. I will be required to sent updates on your treatment to your referring provider. However, you and I will discuss these updates. These updates DO NOT include specifics about what we’ve discussed in therapy. They generally include:

  • Your current diagnosis.
  • Type of therapy we are using.
  • Your progress to date.

—You’ll need a referral from your MTF to get this paid by Tricare. Dependents DO NOT need a referral. 

—If you PCS or go on orders to another duty station in another state, and are living on post, I can continue to see you. 

What do know about me:

—In addition to the issues listed at the top of this page, I’m a Star Provider, with specialized training from the Center for Deployment Psychology in working with military populations in the areas of Traumatic Stress, Depression, Anxiety, and Insomnia disorder. 

—Additional training in Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Written Exposure Therapy (WET) and Cognitive-behavioral Therapy for Insomnia specifically for military populations. 

—Father was a combat war veteran, husband finishing his 20, and two sons in the military.
