The Counseling Program involves the provision of individual, marital, family and/or group therapy/counseling to address a wide range of mental health concerns.
Master’s level therapists, all of whom have advanced skills and training in family dynamics and systems interventions, provide services within this program, including Employee Assistance Program (EAP) counseling. Counseling is an invaluable resource to families and individuals in terms of need. An individualized treatment plan identifies the strengths/weaknesses and outlines treatment goals and time frames for completion of services.

Family Life Education
The Comprehensive Family Life Education (FLE) program provides research-based educational curriculum in a safe classroom setting. The curriculum is designed to provide families with information and coping strategies when they are experiencing problems with parenting, going through divorce, or with anger issues in the home, school, and workplace. Our trained class facilitators are available to help participants understand and apply what they learn.

These programs can be individually designed and address issues such as parenting, problem-solving, communication, self-esteem and step/blended families.
Social Service Consultation:
Working under specific contractual agreements, Social Service Consultation provides consulting services to individuals and organizations. Businesses, churches, schools, and daycare facilities are just a few of the organizations referring to the Social Service Consultation program. Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) are also available.
Family Service is an invaluable resource to families in times of strain and stress. In these uncertain times, Family Service is faced with unique challenges as an agency. The need for our services is growing, as families struggle with economic and emotional stress brought about by what is going on in the world around us.
