My experience at Center for Child Counseling has been great. The therapists are genuinely invested in advocating and empowering clients.. i have learned creative ways to lessen the intensity of my trauma. My therapist has given me examples of how staying stuck in negative thoughts has lead to unhealthy behaviors. I have also been able to improve my ADLs and take time for self-care due to working with my therapist in regards that i do deserve to be healthy. I have also been given tools to FEEL safe and this has enabled me to maintain housing and develop a healthy support system. I appreciate all that my therapistt does for me in educating, showing me skills and making suggestions on my individual needs.

The therapists at Center for Child Counseling are the best of the best. Each one of them takes the time to know every facet of their child’s life.

As a clinician whose career has been in Palm Beach county I knew that our traditional mental health system dealing with children had to change. We needed to find a way to support the entire family. I am so thankful to work for an organization that knows that change for children happens in the context of the family and the relationship. That services start with the strengths of the family and focus on the family's needs. And by collaborating with our families are we able to assist them towards permanent lasting change, The ability to provide this type of quality comes with passion, dedication and competency that is at the core of all of our staff. Thank you CFCC for bringing a new level of excellence to our community.

Two years ago I was diagnosed with an auto immune disorder. My 8-year old twins suffered during that time seeing me sick. Thankfully I was referred to Center for Child Counseling where both of my children received services and were able to process their feelings during play therapy, art therapy and sand tray therapy. Their therapists were amazing at supporting my children and teaching them coping skills. It has been two years since my children received services and they are both doing great! Thank you Center for Child counseling! You truly changed our lives.

I started working for this amazing organization 4 months ago and am astounded by the extremely supportive leadership team, the holistic approach to working with children and families, and the passion that everyone has for the services we provide in Palm Beach County.
As a certified yoga instructor and holistic health coach in addition to my role of therapist, I feel incredibly honored to be working for an organization that not only encourages teaching children about yoga, deep breathing and other mindfulness practices, but makes a determined effort to bring yoga into the daycare centers. Furthermore, the organization's state-of the-art play therapy rooms are replete with materials that reinforce mindfulness (e.g. the Hoberman sphere) and creative exploration.

Center for Child Counseling is an exceptional impact organization and I wish with all my heart that such agencies existed when I was a child. As an adult survivor of Adverse Childhood Experiences, I can tell you how much of life saver this nonprofit is. The lenses we forge in childhood are the same lenses through which we see things as an adult, and if issues are left unresolved, those lenses can color and distort everything. Kudos to CfCC for being the front line warrior in defense of Palm Beach County children!
