Serving Active Duty, Veteran, State and Federal Law Enforcement, and First Responders
At Calm in the storm we have a special place in our hearts for those we consider the SHEEPDOGS of the community. These are men and women who choose to relinquish the comfort and blissful peace that most of society takes for granted. The men and women who decide to stand outside the crowd, placing themselves between the flock and shadows. Staring through the darkness and directly into the eyes of the wolves. These men and women stand against anything that seeks to hurt the flock behind them. Allowing the allowing our families and friends an opportunity to live in naive candor with the rest of the flock. We don’t want them to see what we see. To know what lives out there.
As a Sheepdog, you have already shown that you are cut from a different cloth. You are made from a different metal. Forged in a furnace that burns hotter than others. We cannot expect the same tools and therapeutic approaches tested and honed on the sheep in the flock to work on the sheepdogs. They have already proven there is something different about them. You wouldn’t keep a furnace at the same temperature used to craft a spoon if you were trying to forge a long sword. The furnace needs to be turned hotter, because this metal is stronger. It needs to be treated differently. Burn out the impurities and then take out the hammer. It needs to beaten, folded, and tempered. And when it is ready to be sharpened it will only be sharpened when another piece of iron is set against it. We want to serve that role for you. And you will sharpen us too.
This is a program created by a former Force Reconnaissance Marine and Marne Raider who, following medical retirement, transitioned into a mental health counselor. We have taken empirically validated therapeutic approaches and reapplied them with our personal understanding of this warrior subculture. We respect the unique experiences shared within this exclusive group of men and women.
If you are Active duty, a Veteran, State and Federal Law Enforcement, Retired law enforcement, or a First Responders you are the Sheepdogs of the community. If you would like to schedule an intake session or learn more about this program please contact us and make sure to clarify that you are interested in the Sheepdog Program. You were there for them. We are here for you.
Never Below you, Never Above you, Always Beside you. We Advance together.
