Counseling for Women Responders & Women in the Military

Code 3 Counseling is now the

Monterey Regional Center


Restoration FirstResponder Centers

It was not easy to get where you are. You may have had an easy time making the decision to serve a purpose greater than yourself, but there was most likely some resistance from friends and family members. Even with those who doubted you, you did it! You followed your calling!
And now, it is still really hard. The doubts others have about you and your abilities. You have to work five times as hard as your other coworkers to prove yourself, whether it is to command staff who still have the idea that women shouldn't be in this field, or if it is to a colleague who doesn't want to be shown up by a girl. You are afraid to address these issues with supervisors, maybe because you are afraid of retaliation or of being ostracized.
You thought it would get easier with time, but it's not. You thought you could handle it better, but now you find yourself thinking about it all the time. Keeping you up at night. It could be impacting your relationships, both at work and at home. You don't want to keep going like this, you know there has to be a better way.

Find your confidence again!

Our staff is skilled in helping you recognize your own strengths and potential to be the best officer, firefighter, paramedic, or military service member only you can be. We are able to provide a unique insight into the struggles you face as a female in a predominantly male career.
Through our counseling services, you will be better able to understand how all the different layers are impacting your experience as a responder. You will develop tools and routines that can help you control your thoughts and emotions when you are not on duty.
Not only will you be able to thrive in this role for yourself, but you will become an inspiration to other women in the field. Your success as a responder and as a woman outside of the responder world will show other women that it is possible. That they can also become leaders, become successful, in this calling.

Counseling sessions for women last between 45-50 minutes. Sessions occur on average once every week or two weeks. Based on your goals and treatment needs, therapy and counseling can be as brief as 8-10 sessions or can be longer-term over a year or two. To know the fees and costs for sessions, look here.
