Military Sexual Trauma Counseling
Health services, Healthcare

What is military sexual trauma counseling?

Military sexual trauma counseling may include individual or group counseling, marital and family counseling, referral for benefits assistance, liaison with community agencies or substance abuse information and referral to help you deal with the emotions of military sexual trauma and regain confidence in your everyday life.

Am I eligible for military sexual trauma counseling?

Any Veteran, or Service member to include members of the National Guard and Reserve forces, who was sexually traumatized while serving in the military is eligible to receive counseling regardless of gender or era of service.

Where are services available?

Assessment and referral for MST-related counseling is available at all Vet Centers. Onsite counseling is available at selected Vet Centers across the country. In addition, MST-related medical and mental health services are available at your local VA Medical Center and can be accessed by contacting the Military Sexual Trauma Coordinator or your existing VA healthcare provider.

The Dixon Center Female Veterans Program Financial Assistance Program and application

The nation’s almost 20 million veterans have a variety of programs to aid in their success – from wellness to housing to financial aid. But the sheer volume (more than 45,000 private groups and hundreds of government programs) can be overwhelming to navigate. Compounding the problem is that many of these programs take a silo approach, only tackling one problem instead of providing a comprehensive set of solutions.

That’s the role that Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services plays – serving as the connective thread to break down barriers and connect individuals and organizations with easily accessible solutions that veterans and military families need to access meaningful employment, education, housing, and wellness. We work at local and national levels in five focus areas:

  • Workforce development and career placement
  • Housing solutions
  • Wellness research and development
  • Expanding funding streams for veteran entrepreneurs
  • Advancing impact via service networks

No openings. The decision to start therapy can often be a significant one. "Goodness of fit" is an important part of this decision. My goal in therapy is to help you to feel better, to learn ways to actualize your full potential, and to be able to overcome barriers that get in the way of living a full and rewarding life. I use empirically-supported therapies which focus on strategies that have been shown through research to be effective in addressing various concerns. These strategies are used in a flexible manner to work best with your unique perspective based on your life experience, personality, and cultural considerations.

I tend to be an active therapist and will share with you my thoughts as we identify what strategies will work best for you. My areas of expertise include trauma/post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, life transitions, stress reduction and managing life's challenges, veteran populations/active duty service members.

I have extensive experience working with marginalized populations and welcome people with diverse ethnic/racial backgrounds and those who identify as LGBTQ or have varied gender expressions. My clients have described me as authentic, empathic, and engaged.

PhD, PLLC – Clinical Associate
Licensed Psychologist

Wendy David, PhD, PLLC, is a licensed clinical psychologist with a 30-year history of working with veterans, women, couples, groups, and families. She served as a Staff Psychologist at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System in Seattle for 25 years and on faculty with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington until 2015. She now focuses on her private practice as well as her consultation services to state and local agencies. Dr. David received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Washington in 1991, became licensed in Washington State in 1993, and is a highly-regarded and sought-after consultant and presenter both locally and internationally in the areas of PTSD, Military Sexual Trauma (MST), disability, and mental health. Her expertise includes Cognitive Behavioral and Evidence-based treatments for PTSD, depression, trauma, sleep disturbance, eating disorders, and interpersonal relationship skills. Compassionate and caring, she utilizes an integrative and holistic approach to treatment, maintaining a collaborative relationship in setting treatment goals while carefully listening to and responding to clients’ needs.

Blind since age 8, Dr. David has published two books in the field of blindness which have received international acclaim. Her first book, Safe without Sight: Crime Prevention and Self Defense Strategies for People who are Blind (David, McCall, and Kolmar, 1998), serves as the foundation of personal safety curricula in schools and agencies for visually impaired individuals in the U.S. and Australia. It has also been adapted for female veterans with histories of sexual trauma and PTSD in a program of therapeutic self-defense called “Taking Charge!” Her second book, Sites Unseen: Traveling the World without Sight (David, 2010), promotes travel and serves as a resource guide to assist and encourage travel and tourism by individuals with visual impairments and other disabilities.

Dr. David’s areas of specialty include:

  • PTSD and Trauma Treatment
  • Depression
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Adjusting to Disability and Chronic Illness
  • Women’s Concerns and Health
  • Eating Disorders
  • Couples’ Interactions and Conflict Resolution
  • Coping with Life Transitions and Challenges
  • Anxiety and Stress Management
  • Grief and Loss

She provides a diversity of evidence-based treatments, including:

  • Prolonged Exposure Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD and Trauma
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for depression, anxiety, eating disorders, sleep problems,
    and relationships
  • Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for stress, anxiety, and
    depression
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy for emotional regulation and interpersonal skills

When not working, consulting, writing, or presenting, she enjoys skiing, dragon-boat paddling, attending concerts and the theater, and traveling the world with her faithful guide dog, Okra.
