On retirement from the military E. C. founded SoldierCenter, a community-based treatment center, near Ft Campbell, KY, which specializes in treating military personnel, veterans and their families with a broad range of military-related stressors ranging from acute stress to PTSD.
Following 9-11, as Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom were evolving, E. C. was treating an average of 8 soldiers a day, infantry from the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), a Special Forces Group at Ft Campbell and members of the (Blackhawk down) special operations aviation regiment dealing with combat related issues. At first it was mostly single incident combat trauma, then later complex PTSD as multiple deployments continued.
Looking for an effective treatment for military-related trauma, E. C. was trained in EMDR therapy which became a core treatment for clients seeking treatment at his center, Soldier Center.
C. ‘s military awards include the Meritorious Service Medal (two Oak Leaf clusters), the Bronze Star Medal, the Legion of Merit, and the U.S. Army’s Air Assault badge.
