WHY WE EXIST & WHAT WE STAND FOR

Our Manifesto

  • We believe mental and physical health are not separate; that all wellness occurs in the whole body and the whole body must be considered in the treatment and recovery process.
  • We believe all persons deserve equal access to quality mental health care, regardless of sex, race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, or political affiliation.
  • We believe our first responders deserve, and benefit most from, culturally competent care from providers who understand their occupational experiences and are able to incorporate that knowledge into a client’s care.
  • We believe that affordable mental health services should be accessible to all. We strive to be an affordable service for our first responder community.
  • We believe in reducing the stigma of mental health care to ensure that all who need support and treatment, are free to access it, without worry of perception or an unecessary questioning of their fitness for duty.
  • We believe that mentally healthy first responders create safer communities for all.
    • We believe that seeking help, support, or treatment doesn’t mean that something is “wrong.” It means that you are having a universal human experience in that there will likely always be a point in someone’s life where they can benefit from a skilled, knowledgeable, and unbiased professional support system.
  • We believe each client we serve deserves a high quality care team made up of collaborating professionals to ensure the “whole person” consideration and referrals to complementary services are available.
  • “Cinnamon understands the mental health strain on first responders and the complexities that come along with the job. As a police officer, she has helped me navigate both personal and professional aspects of my life.”

    How We Started

    Whole House Counseling & Consultation was founded when Cinnamon Reiheld spent eight months serving a local fire department following a line of duty death. While providing counseling and emotional support, she quickly realized that the need for culturally competent mental health care for first responders extended beyond this one tragic event.
    In addition to individual counseling and trauma recovery, Cinnamon saw the need to train departments and help team members support one another by understanding the inevitable effects of stress on the mind and body.
    One of our top priorities is eliminating the stigma around seeking mental health treatment, while giving departments the tools to function well both internally and for our communities.
