The first responder career tends to influence just about every aspect of your life. This is why when we're talking about challenges coming up in your family it would be a big mistake not to acknowledge all the unique challenges you encounter on a daily basis as a police spouse or fire spouse.
I understand the daily frustrations you face beyond what you're here for... scheduling, holidays, and constantly changing family routines. Each shift you have to try and shut out those "what ifs" that arise when your spouse goes off to work. You're tasked with perfecting both "single" and co-parenting depending on the day. Needless to say, your family is often adapting in order to serve the needs of our community. Your family deserves services that understand the beautiful juggling act that each of you are in.
As a first responder family, it can be hard to really trust that outsiders understand the unique challenges of your family. I am the sister to three law enforcement officers and I am married to a firefighter. This is why I get it and can provide you with services that you can trust.
