Mary Haupt is a readjustment counseling therapist at the La Crosse Vet

Center in Wisconsin. She works with service members and veterans who have

experienced trauma and other adverse experiences while serving in the

military, including those who have experienced military sexual

trauma. Extensively trained in trauma-informed therapy, she is also an

EMDR therapist. Mary is the daughter of a Korean War veteran who

served in the US Air Force. Because she did not

serve in the military, is very grateful to be able to serve veterans in her

capacity as a counselor. Her father, Norbert Siolka, is still with us and

she thinks of him all the time!
