Family members are often overlooked when it comes to the impact of the work. One of Becky's specialty is working with parents to help them support their teenagers.
The effects of the job do not stop at the door of your home. Children may also experience secondary traumatic stress, organizational stress, burnout, depression, and anxiety stemming from the work. They may they find themselves at the mercy of rotating assignments, shiftwork, and a first responder who feels physically, psychologically, or spiritually depleted. Working as a first responder tends to be a way of life for many in the profession. As such, it affects the family’s way of life.

Relationships are hard work for anyone and, when you add in shift work, on-call, overtime, trauma, and a couple of kids, it can feel impossible. It's Becky's passion to lead couples and families through tough conversations, teach healthy communication tactics, normalize what can seem to be abnormal relationship dynamics, and support first responder families through difficult challenges.
Lately, media scrutiny and public negativity, among other factors, have made an impact on first responder relationships. Partners of first responders are not always familiar with the challenges that come with this line of work. This can feel isolating, lonely, or hopeless. If you find yourself in this place, please reach out to Becky. She can work with you and your partner to create a flexible, loving, and secure relationship.
Becky works with children, parent-child/ children, and couples. She can be reached at 971-330-9561 or email@example.com
