Family Counseling


The Family Counseling program provides culturally competent mental health services for vulnerable children and families. We have special expertise working with young children who have histories of trauma and loss. We promote the healthy social and emotional development of children of all ages.

We provide support to parents in managing the care of their child. Our licensed clinicians can provide individual counseling, family counseling, play therapy and parenting support.

We focus on family strengths, offering families hope and empowerment. Counseling can be offered – in some cases – in the home or in community settings. Our counselors accept Blue Cross, United Health, NHP, Medicaid and Rite Care insurance as well as self-paying clients.

Many families who come to us for counseling can benefit from a range of other support programs that Children’s Friend offers to eligible families, free of charge. We also link families with a range of community resources outside of the agency.
