There are so many dedicated professionals who treat and help our brave men and women who serve. One happens to be on the show today - Dr. Sachi Ananda, Ph.D., LMHC, MCAP is responsible for providing clinical direction to FHE Health's specialized treatment program for first responders. Her #1 goal in her job is to help first responders return as soon as possible to their roles as public servants in their communities and families.
Dr. Ananda is a licensed mental health counselor, certified master’s-level addiction professional, and clinical sexologist. Her professional expertise and personal background groomed her for working with and relating to first responders and understanding their unique treatment needs. She specializes in trauma work, relationship therapy, and drug and process addictions recovery.
Growing up in a military family with a father in the Navy and a brother in the U.S. Marines, Dr. Ananda saw firsthand the impact that PTSD can have on the health and wellbeing of members of the military and first responders. She is trained in EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Motivational Interviewing, relapse prevention, sex therapy, and family interventions— among other innovative therapeutic strategies that have proven effective for first responders. Dr. Ananda is originally from Vietnam. Her family came to the U.S. as refugees when she was a young child. They settled in the Pacific Northwest, which is where Dr. Ananda lived and worked for many years before eventually calling Florida “home.”
A great show with an amazing member of the FHE Health Family.
