Anxiety is extremely common, especially in the uncertain world of military families. Some of the common symptoms you may experience include:

  • Persistent worry and fear
  • Feeling on edge or uneasy
  • Intrusive and unhelpful thoughts
  • Difficulty relaxing or staying calm
  • Moodiness or irritability
  • Sleep problems
  • Panic attacks
  • Palpitations or racing heart
  • Shortness of breath
  • Shaking or trembling

However, your anxiety may not take any of these forms. It's important for you to know that whether your anxiety is diagnosable or not, your struggle is a real one, and we are here to support you through it.


Rise Alone Therapy offers medical and non-medical therapeutic treatment for spouses of military personnel and their families.

Whether your loved one is deployed, TDY, awaiting assignment or any other status, let us partner with you to overcome the unknown and put practices in place that will help you make it through each day of serving our country alongside your spouse.

Adjustment Disorders

One of the most common struggles for military families is adjustment disorders. This is an unhealthy response to the changes and uncertainty that plague military families. You may feel isolated from your community because you’re constantly in a state of change. Your children might be dealing with anxiety about constantly changing schools — or maybe you are struggling to further your education. Perhaps your job security is at an all-time low because you never know when you’ll have to leave.

Remember that struggling with an adjustment disorder is extremely common for those in your situation. There are steps we can take to ground you and help you overcome your fears and isolation. You can learn to face tomorrow with hope.

Deployments and Temporary Duty Assignment (TDY)

You may not be the one on deployment or TDY, but you are the one left alone. Life in a long-distance marriage or as an only parent is hard enough on its own, but what about when your kids get sick or the car breaks down? With your normal support system unavailable, you need someone to talk to who will listen and understand your struggle.

Whether you need support in the normal stressors of your life or if there are even more extenuating circumstances you’re facing, you have help in Rise Alone Therapy.

The first step is realizing you need someone to talk to. The next step is to reach out. Contact us to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation so we can get to know one another. This will give us a chance to figure out where you’re at and what you need.

We look forward to meeting you.
