Do You Ever Feel Like Everything Is Going Up In Flames? Fire fighters, police officers, military, EMS providers, and all first responders are under immense pressure and stress, day in and day out.

I want to help shred the shame and highlight strategies that work to alleviate and eliminate common stumbling blocks for First Responders like addiction, PTSD, relationship failure, and more.
