The Youth and Family Counseling Program provides professional therapeutic services to children, youth, and their families. We serve ages Infant to 25 years old and their families.
Through individual, family and group sessions youth and families learn healthier ways to manage emotions, conflict and mental health challenges thereby allowing them to function better across environments. The therapeutic services also help individuals learn how to cope with such issues as childhood trauma, family stressors, peer pressure, academic struggles and relationship issues.
