Young children are still learning to articulate their emotions and sometimes what we interpret as “acting up” can really just be miscommunication between parents and children.

Child & Family delivers affordable counseling for those experiencing difficulties in parenting.  Our goal is to assess each child and family dynamic, and then teach you skills to cope with your current challenges.  Our trained professionals work with your children to help them express emotional struggles through a series of playful activities.  Sometimes the parent/child connection requires alternative ways to solve problems, communicate and ease tensions for you, your child and your whole family.

  • Sustained sadness
  • Mournful of the past
  • Prefers to be alone

These counseling services are based out of our Middletown and Providence locations, local schools and sometimes private residences.  Our dedicated staff helps hundreds of individuals and families with counseling services each year.  We offer flexible payment options based on your personal income and we accept Medicaid, TriCare and most major insurance companies.  Through donor support some of our clients may qualify for partial assistance.  All inquiries are confidential.  Child & Family clients have access to our 24-hour hotline, and after hours all emergency calls are fielded by our answering service and routed to our on-call staff.  Trust us to be available in your time of need.
