About Katy Luallen, MFT

For over 20 years I’ve successfully worked with hundreds of First Responders and Veterans including in Critical Incident Stress Management, and I’ve developed insights and expertise that is vital to engage, and work with this population.

I have met and worked with Clinicians who have tried to reach this client base without success.  When they work with First Responders or Veterans but are not familiar with the nature of the professions, the language, or the cultural norms, they don't succeed.  By engaging in this training participants will learn how to build immediate trust and legitimacy with this population.

Clinicians need to demonstrate, from the very first meeting, that they understand the specific difficulties that first responders and veterans face.  Similar issues and struggles surface in most of these clients.  


 BY attending our training, clinicians will gain cultural awareness and provide a comforting experience for the client.  Difficulty with trust, exhaustion, fear, isolation, emotional dysregulation, and anxiety look very different in these clients and understanding why and how to treat these symptoms is very important.

The experience of First Responders and Veterans in the United States is changing.  There are not enough Culturally Competent Clinicians that understand the intricacies of these clients.  I have dedicated myself to training clinicians all over the country to be compassionate and competent to support those in our communities that keep us safe.
