Steven Thornhill came to Tania Glenn & Associates because of his desire to work with a team that has a reputation for providing highly effective and compassionate care to Veterans and First Responders. Steven is trained in EMDR as he feels it is one of the most successful modalities for the treatment of complex trauma. Additionally, he employs many facets of Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Judgment free, and compassion focused therapy delivered to highly motivated and driven individuals is what Steven focuses on for all of his clients.
Steven is a Veteran, having served in the United States Army as a Forward Observer with multiple deployments. After leaving the Army Steven pursued a career in healthcare working in both hospital Emergency Rooms, and rural EMS as an EMT-Intermediate, and industrial EMS/Hazmat response for nearly a decade. Leaving the First Responder community due to an injury, Steven became a therapist with the sole intent of working with Veterans and First Responders.
Steven has worked with multiple public safety agencies at all levels in order to foster an environment that is focused on responder care, education and training to better equip these members for the daunting challenges they can face in their professions. Having been a part of these unique communities as a member, and then as a therapist Steven has learned – and continually stresses that “This type of life can be hard but rewarding, but it is extremely more difficult when we do not take the time to take care of ourselves.”
Steven is married to a Commander in Communications for ATCEMS and that allows him another unique lens from which to observe the public safety arena and that is one of a spouse. Having activated for multiple public safety critical events Steven understands the impacts these events have on responders, their families and their communities. Steven feels that having been in the Army and then in public safety was a phenomenal job, but working with – and more specifically for, this particular population is truly the best job in the world.Email Steven
