Adler Alumnus, Veteran Helps Heal 'Invisible Wounds' of War

An Adler University alumnus and Illinois Army National Guard veteran is using a holistic approach to treat military members and their families at a newly opened Central Illinois center.

Blake Schroedter, Psy.D., is a clinical psychologist working with veterans battling Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other mental health challenges through the Road Home Program. Since its Sept. 1 opening, clients can receive his help at a new Effingham, Illinois, outpatient clinic – and all services are free, thanks to the Wounded Warrior Project.

“My clinical specialty is treating the invisible wounds of war, but I have the skill to treat a variety of behavioral health conditions to include PTSD, anxiety, depression, stress, anger, sleep disruption, substance use disorder, and issues related to family stress,” Schroedter said, in a Shelbville Daily Union article summarizing offerings at the new center.

Schroedter earned his doctorate degree from Adler University in 2016. He completed a psychology internship at Jesse Brown VA Medical Center and a post-doctoral trauma fellowship at Rush University Medical Center in The Road Home Program.
