Sometimes families need an objective approach to help solve life’s problems. Consultation Services can bring people together in a safe place, define the problem, develop a plan and identify resources to achieve desirable results. Our professional staff facilitates meetings for families who are concerned about a loved one, whether it is an older adult or a person with mental health challenges who would benefit from a coordinated plan of services and care.
Counseling is a collaborative effort between the counselor and client. Our licensed therapists help clients identify goals and potential solutions to problems that cause emotional turmoil, improve communication and coping skills and symptom management, strengthen self-esteem, promote behavior change, feel better and function at their best. Our counseling services include individual psychotherapy for adults, adolescents & children, couples therapy, family therapy, play therapy, parenting coaching, grief support and more. Our services are confidential. We accept most insurance including Medicare.

This program serves Jews and their families encountering life-altering medical situations who are looking for a spiritual connection, but are unaffiliated with a synagogue.

Trained volunteers and clergy visit those in health care situations who are in need of healing.
