When an individual or family is going through a crisis or experiencing turmoil, it can feel overpowering. JFCS is here to provide guidance and counseling for those struggling due to external circumstances or emotional challenges. Our licensed clinical social workers take a holistic and trauma-informed approach as they help sort through feelings and work through problems, using evidence-based interventions and techniques to provide comprehensive care to individuals and families. Every person who receives JFCS counseling will develop an individualized plan with their counselor to identify their treatment goals and work towards achieving them.
JFCS offers counseling to address the following situations, among others:
- Anger management
- Family relationships
- Interpersonal relationships
- Intimate partner violence
- LGBTQ+ support
- Life stresses
- Life transitions
Counseling eligibility is determined based on the specific needs of the individual or family.
We offer services via a variety of locations and platforms: telehealth, in office settings, and mobile therapy for those who are eligible.
If fees are applicable, they are established on a case-by-case basis. If you need assistance, please do not let financial concerns keep you from calling for help. Payment options may include a sliding scale, Medicare, and/or additional assistance.
In conjunction with counseling, JFCS therapists will refer clients to additional resources to meet their needs.
JFCS is NOT a crisis center or a residential treatment facility. If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
