Making the weight of the world lighter.
Counseling is specialized and offered at no cost.
We will work to get to know you as an individual and family and work with you to come up with the best treatment plan possible. The facilities provide a safe, child friendly environment that help families and children on their road to recovery. It is our hope that you will want to continue with services at our agency, but, if for any reason you choose to stop it is entirely YOUR CHOICE.
Types of Counseling
Parents whose children have been abused may feel hopeless, even despondent, about their child and their future. Family & Children’s Place offers realistic hope for healing through counseling for the entire family.
We offer individual, family, group and school-based counseling. Counseling — free to all our clients — uses evidence-based, proven interventions for children and family members who have experienced trauma. Interventions include play therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), narrative therapy, and motivational interviewing.
