Programs / Child & Family Counseling / Program Overview
ICFH is one of the oldest, largest, and most respected providers of counseling services in the State of Florida. Our child and family counseling programs are designed to enhance individual and family strengths in order to achieve improvements in behavior, relationships, and/or emotional well being. We provide high quality counseling services to children, adolescents and families who are coping with a wide range of issues – from relatively simple behavior and adjustment problems to more serious conditions of depression, anxiety, child abuse, and trauma. Services are provided in the family's home, the child's school, or in one of our three outpatient centers. Increasingly – with funding cut backs and other barriers – our center is one of the few that still offers these essential services to needy and low income families. Access to high quality counseling services is especially critical for children and adolescents, as proper and timely treatment during childhood often serves to decrease the risk later in life for more serious mental health disorders, relationship problems, school failure, delinquency, and substance abuse.
