First Responder Spouse

Retreat Details

The First Responder Spouse Retreat (also known as Sage) specializes in first responder family healing with a holistic, wellness-oriented approach. We use evidence-based modalities to improve resiliency and help you reach your potential for a fulfilled life. This is an intimate retreat attended by 6-10 other women plus our clinical and support staff. Together, we will begin a new journey as you learn to navigate the pride, confusion, fear and frustration experienced by other first responder partners and spouses. 

This 4 day / 3 night retreat is specially designed for public safety spouses and is held at our Eagle Creek Retreat Center in Idyllwild, California.


  • Redefine your strength and self-esteem
  • Learn how to be supportive without sacrificing your happiness
  • Focus on caring for yourself while caring for your family
  • Learn about family roles and setting healthy boundaries
  • Develop post traumatic growth practices

What people are saying

“From arrival to departure, I felt the love and support from the staff and therapists. There was thoughtfulness in every detail, which made it easy to let go of my initial reservations and trust the process. It was a lifetime opportunity, and I am very grateful to have been a part of it. Please keep it going for future first responder spouses.”
