Counseling Services


We provide short-term counseling services to families with children birth to 17 and young adults ages 18-25. Our services take a family focus and, when appropriate, we have parents and other family members directly involved in the therapy sessions.

We address such issues as:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • School avoidance
  • Impact of separation and divorce on children
  • Parenting and family conflicts
  • Changes in mood or self-care
  • Peer conflicts and social skills
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Some children may present issues that require a higher level of care such as threats of self-harm, significant drug use or other out-of-control behaviors. The person handling the intake will do their best to direct you to the needed services.

All of our therapists are highly skilled and experienced, none possessing less than a masters degree.

We do not provide marital or individual adult therapy services. Youth and Family Services does not provide any documentation, evaluation or testimony regarding custody or any court related matters.


The first session is free and the fee is $15.00 per session. Client’s may request a Rate Reduction based on financial circumstances.
Methods of payment: Cash, check or credit card.
