I have a special free weekly clinic dedicated to the treatment of PTSD. The clinic is open to all veterans and their families. I use an ear acupuncture protocol developed specifically for trauma and used in clinics across the country for the after affects of trauma of all kinds. Patients are treated fully clothed while sitting. Acupuncturists without Borders has also sponsored clinics across the country specifically for returning vets with PTSD, and my clinic is one of those. It's a safe, comfortable environment dedicated to vets alone, and has been very successful in treating the anxiety, nightmares, and flashbacks many of them have been experiencing. I welcome and encourage vets to take advantage of this weekly service.

I have been in private practice since 1991, and am also a teacher and supervisor of counseling and clinical social work. I work mainly with couples and adult individuals experiencing problems of depression, anxiety, addictive and compulsive behaviors, and/or other mental and emotional health conditions. In particular, I specialize in working with the impact of acute and chronic stress and trauma on both individual functioning and relationship intimacy. My approach is strengths-based and collaborative, meaning that I assume that individuals and families already have the inner and outer resources they need to solve their problems and cope with their difficulties, and that my job is to help clients to access, recruit and deploy those resources effectively. I utilize an array of evidence-based, best-practice therapy methods, based on the needs, preferences and problems of each client I see.

The trauma of war can lead to anger at, confusion about, and resentment toward life, fate, and/or God. It is easy to lose meaning and purpose. Regardless of your faith tradition, or lack thereof, spiritual guidance and support can help release some of the pain of war. Although I have training in some counseling techniques and will at times use some of those techniques, I am not a licensed therapist and do not provide ongoing mental health counseling. My focus is on helping you process the spiritual pain related to trauma, especially the trauma of war. I am a professional chaplain with experience working with clients who have a history of trauma and addiction, including veterans.

I became interested in working with returning veterans after many conversations with a family member affected by PTSD from combat. Although I've never been involved with military service directly, I have years of experience working with people who are struggling with PTSD and believe strongly in the value of counseling to help with PTSD symptoms. I consider it an honor to be able to work with the Returning Veterans Project, and see it as an opportunity to serve my country by helping provide healing and support to those with unseen battle wounds.

Acupuncture is a powerful modality that works to balance the body, calm the mind and bring the individual back to a place of original health. It is still being studied how acupuncture works precisely. Many studies have shown, blood hormone balance, pain relief and relaxation after treatments. Acupuncture can be of benefit for musculoskeletal issues, endocrine and hormone imbalances, anxiety, PTSD, allergies and immune problems, headaches and many more issues. Treatments are private one hour sessions that will focus on whatever is requested.

Acupuncture Effect and Central Autonomic Regulation
Qian-Qian Li, Guang-Xia Shi, Qian Xu, Jing Wang, Cun-Zhi Liu,* and Lin-Peng Wang

Abstract
Acupuncture is a therapeutic technique and part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Acupuncture has clinical efficacy on various autonomic nerve-related disorders, such as cardiovascular diseases, epilepsy, anxiety and nervousness, circadian rhythm disorders, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and subfertility. An increasing number of studies have demonstrated that acupuncture can control autonomic nerve system (ANS) functions including blood pressure, pupil size, skin conductance, skin temperature, muscle sympathetic nerve activities, heart rate and/or pulse rate, and heart rate variability. Emerging evidence indicates that acupuncture treatment not only activates distinct brain regions in different kinds of diseases caused by imbalance between the sympathetic and parasympathetic activities, but also modulates adaptive neurotransmitter in related brain regions to alleviate autonomic response. This review focused on the central mechanism of acupuncture in modulating various autonomic responses, which might provide neurobiological foundations for acupuncture effects
1. Introduction
Acupuncture has been practiced for over 3000 years with beneficial clinical effects on many disorders [1]. There is sufficient evidence of the value of acupuncture to expand its application into conventional medicine and to encourage further studies of its physiological and clinical values [2]. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), “acupuncture is believed to restore the balance between Yin and Yang.” This can be translated into the Western medicine terminology as “acupuncture modulates the imbalance between the parasympathetic and sympathetic activity......

When I was doing internship at my school and outside of school I encountered many patients who were veterans and in great need to receive treatments but had little resources to afford them. Chinese medicine is a holistic medicine that can treat the whole person not just a symptom, and in that it can excel in making a difference for the patient. It always hit a soft spot within me to see that especially young people have no other place to go to to relieve their sometimes debilitating pains and fears. Acupuncture can especially help with PTSD, and finding back into daily life.

Where I was instrumental in establishing and running the Family Programs. I am credentialed in Trauma, I am a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor III and understand the impact of reintegration on the family unit. My husband is a Navy Veteran and though he did not see action, his time away when he was in the National Guard assisted me in understanding some of the difficulties present in how readjustment can negatively impact a family system. I have experience treating survivors of Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Military Sexual Trauma and Combat Veterans. I have over 20 years in the field, have been married for 20 years and have a teen age daughter who has been living with Type I Diabetes since she was diagnosed at the age of 6, so I am able to relate to many life experiences.

Scott is a psychologist who has been practicing for nearly 30 years. He was trained in family systems work and enjoys working with couples and families. Eight years ago, Scott was trained in Brain-spotting, a brain-based intervention, developed for working with trauma. Since that time, Scott has treated many survivors of trauma with impressive results. He believes that war is the most inhumane experience that a person can endure and considers it a great honor to work with veterans. He is also a firm believer that relationship is the ultimate healing agent, and therefore, a trusting relationship is critical to successful therapy. Scott is warm and genuine and prides himself on his ability to establish rapport and help people feel comfortable in the therapy office.

I have been working with couples and families in distress for nearly 25 years. Recently, I have felt a "calling" to work with veterans and their families to help them deal with the trauma of war. I believe we have a responsibility as a community to support our veterans and their families and am honored to be involved with the Returning Veterans Project.
