Question: Do you offer any assistance with PTSD for veterans?
Answer: Unfortunately, we don't have any accredited psychologists or psychiatrists on our team at this time and therefore are reluctant to offer this type of service for veterans. With that said, sometimes hearing another veteran speak about their own personal experiences can be very beneficial to them and therefore we encourage veterans to reach out of us if this sounds like it might be beneficial to them.
