Being an Intern at the Center for Child Counseling has been one of the most rewarding and enlightening learning experiences I have ever encountered. I can honestly say that after spending a year working and growing with the Center, I have never known a group of individuals as dedicated, knowledgable, and passionate as those who work and serve at the Center for Child Counseling. With their team of go-getters and exceptional interns, It is no wonder the Center has grown so much and impacted so many in such a short period of time!

Great counseling! I'm really thankful for the support my family received here. It helped us tremendously to learn to take a moment to think about how different situations affect each one of us and how our response would impact our relationship. The best part is to feel that I have been able to improve the way I communicate with my son to make him feel loved and supported!

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.

This agency can pride itself in a holistic approach of healing that integrates the values, support and hope that children and families need for a better future. Having seen the power of play at work, I truly believe in the incredible way that it empowers children, strengthens parents and heals families. I am proud to be a part of an organization that "walks the walk" as it assists others in how to BE THE BUFFER by modeling this very concept in daily practice.
