ABOUT csrt

        Combat Stress Reaction Treatment (CSRT) is comprised of private psychotherapy practice and a powerlifting gym under one roof. CSRT is individual, long-term therapy for Combat Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Samantha Case, Psy.D. CCPT has specialized in working with combat trauma for the past 12 years. In the past 3 years, we have evolved into integrating powerlifting/strength and conditioning into a functional fitness modality with my two business partners.
        What this means to you is that if and when you decide to do psychotherapy here at CSRT, you will also have access to the gym we have built at Raw Performance. Your gym membership is included at no extra cost. Some days you need to talk about it, and some days you need to leave it on the gym floor. Either way, we are here for you when you are ready.
   So let's get it!

At CSRT Foundation, our goals are to:

  • Provide psychoeducation in a public forum

  • Provide continuous strength and conditioning programs (in house and at other locations) to help Combat Veteran rehabilitation

  • Fund and support consistent one-on-one psychotherapy

  • Provide an outlet for Veterans in a healthy environment which promotes strength and personal growth, as well as a sense of community within the micro-world of powerlifting


  • With anyone coming in, there is an assessment of the current life crisis, what brought you in?

  • What made you email or call to set up the appointment?

  • What drove you to get out of your car and walk into the office?

  • Within this entire beginning process, you should ask yourself...

  • Am I ready to change what is not working?

  • If your answer is yes, let's go!

  • Internal dialogue:

    • "I know I have to change. I am ready to hire the one that knows what they are doing and is going to do their best to help me. I am committed to making this change. This is what hiring this person means to me. I am committed to putting in the work of going to therapy because I have been through worse. I have seen worse, and I have survived. I want to work on what is going on."
