About Code 3 Counseling: Here at Code 3 Counseling, we believe in creating the best atmosphere for our clients and employees and giving back to our community. Our mission is to help first responders and their families find more peace and fulfillment in the life of service. We also serve folks who are not part of the first responder community. We desire to help members of our communities reconnect with the things that are truly important and thrive, both in their own lives and in their relationships. Our vision is to eliminate mental health stigma by creating awareness of, appreciation for, and acceptance of mental health self-care. We are a fun, dynamic, and collaborative team who values working together and helping improve the health and wellness of our communities.

Our Values: Code 3 Counseling lives by values that guide who we are as a team and how we present to our communities. We hire staff who bring these values to life.

Creating strong relationships: Building strong, meaningful relationships is a basic need for all of us. We value building relationships within our community and helping our clients do the same. It’s also a hallmark of our business to promote strong, lasting bonds within our team and to work collaboratively both in the office and out in the community.

Serving the first responder and military community: Part of our mission is to contribute to promoting wellness within the community through community involvement, speaking engagements, and financial contributions. It is our goal to reach more people and provide psychoeducational services to first responders and their families through regular outreach in the community.

Invest in quality: We’re committed to providing the best atmosphere for our clients and our team. Our commitment is seen in our beautiful workspace for our employees, a comforting space for our clients, and in offering the extra touches like coffee + tea stations and a collaborative environment for our team. We promote continued education for our clinicians through trainings in evidence-based practices so clients can feel safe knowing their therapist is always growing in their skill.
