The counseling services provided by Jewish Family service form the very core of what we do. Our counseling staff works with children, teens, families, and adults to resolve personal difficulties and to put people back in charge of their lives. Sometimes our clients struggle to obtain basic necessities such as food, clothing and shelter. Some are left reeling from a family transition or loss. No matter what the obstacle, Jewish Family service allows people to regain a sense of well-being and stability.
The personalized care we provide is augmented by a diverse range of Jewish Family Life Education workshops, specialized suport services and other programs designed to reach out to children, singles, couples, families and the elderly. We collaborate with synagogues, schools, and other organizations to promote healthy relationships and enhanced quality of life.
JFS accepts most insurances and a sliding fee scale is available.
The counseling program provides psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families. We serve children and adolescents and adults of all ages. Our services are insurance eligible, with a sliding scale based on ability to pay. Clients who need medication and are unable to afford private psychiatric services can be evaluated and followed by our consulting psychiatrist on a monthly basis.
