Assisting individuals & agencies
... in strengthening mental wellness using a variety of approaches
For more than a decade, Dr. Sara Garrido Metz has provided psychological support services to police and fire agencies across the state. Code-4 Counseling specializes in individual and couples counseling, mental wellness checkups, critical incident response, in-service trainings on stress and wellness, peer support team supervision, and wellness program development. No waiting lists and no need to fear going to a counselor for the first time. All clients work directly with clinicians who specialize in working with emergency responders to ensure high quality, personalized assistance.
Individual and couples counseling for police, fire, EMS personnel, and their families
Being an emergency responder takes a huge mental toll, but it doesn’t have to cost you or your family everything. Code-4 Counseling clinicians help you and your loved ones work through general life stressors (relationship and communication issues, blended family related struggles, reliance on negative coping skills, sleep disturbances, anger management, etc.) or specific job-related issues (critical incident recovery, job burnout, retirement planning, etc,). Our practice is committed to making therapy a positive experience. You’ll leave the Code-4 Counseling office feeling hopeful, with positive coping strategies and renewed energy for your work.
