Being a mom is tough. Like, really tough. Don't get me wrong, there are so many parts of being a mom that can be wonderful and filled with joy. The love you can have for your child is something you can barely comprehend.
Motherhood can also leave you feeling:exhausted, unappreciated, lonely, unsure of yourself altogether.
You had all of these hopes and expectations about motherhood. About the mom you would be to your children. But right now, it seems so out of reach. So unattainable. Each day you can barely hold onto the energy to meet the needs of your children or your family.
And for first responder and military families, whether you are the responder or the spouse, the struggles mothers face in these families is increased tenfold. The shiftwork schedules, the missed milestones for the kids, the chaotic or completely missed holiday seasons. The "mom guilt" sets in hard for you.
Amidst the chaos of the life going on around you, you feel lost and alone from within. Maybe it has been years since you last felt good about yourself, about your role as a mom or a spouse, if that ever was an experience you had.
And now, you aren't sure if you could ever feel good about yourself or your situation.
So here you are, hoping beyond hope that maybe there is something that could help. Maybe you tried counseling in the past, maybe a friend told you this could help. Or maybe you just did a Google search, hoping and praying for some answers. Whatever the case may be that brought you here, you do know that you need help and support to get through this.
Our team of devoted counselors can help you find what you need to get back the hope you once had. We will help you identify your strengths and potential so that you can live into your genuine self.
