Counseling for Moms

Code 3 Counseling is now the

Monterey Regional Center


Restoration FirstResponder Centers

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.

Pregnancy and Postpartum Mental Health Support

You have made it to the postpartum phase in the motherhood journey, and now you don't know what to do or where to go.
Many moms struggle with postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, mood swings, difficulty sleeping, and especially mom guilt when this whole thing doesn't come as naturally as people make it sound.
Our counseling team consists of maternal mental health experts who understand the different ways this part of the journey impacts your experience. You will feel heard, understood, like someone finally gets it without you having to find the right words!
Through counseling, you will find the moments of bliss and joy with your baby that you had been hoping for. You will find the confidence you have been searching for in yourself.
The chaos will still be there. But you will be able to know that you can handle it all and still be the best mom for your family.
