Child counseling services are flexible, and counselors will work with children as long as the parent wishes the child to receive those services.
Family sessions include stress management, family communication, family cohesiveness, parent-child interaction, conflict resolution and other therapy depending on the needs of the family. Each family is assigned their own counselor and may receive services for as long as they wish.
