It has truly been a pleasure to work and grow along with the Center for Child Counseling over the past 3 years. As a professional, I appreciate the responsiveness of CFCC leadership and the ongoing opportunities for professional growth. I feel both seen and supported not just as a therapist, but as a person. As a clinical social worker, I also really admire CFCC's comprehensive approach to intervention by providing micro, mezzo, and macro level interventions to address the needs of children and families. I love that we do so much more than 1 on1 therapy. We also provide educational groups, provide community workshops, and engage with multiple systems to share with them the reality of ACE's and the power of building resiliency in children through nurturing adult relationships. I'm honored to be a part of this passionate and innovative organization and I look forward to witnessing the powerful impact CFCC will continue to have in our county and beyond!

Six years ago, I moved to Florida from Philadelphia, PA where as a psychologist, I ran trauma treatment programs for children for many years. When I arrived in Florida, I began looking for a place to work that provides the highest quality of clinal care to children and families, and uses evidenced-based and innovative practices. I was not sure where to turn as a newcomer to the area, but as I met with leaders in the mental/behavioral health community in Palm Beach County, I kept hearing about the Center for Child Counseling (CFCC) and the amazing work they were doing, including clinical work and professional trainings in the areas of child adversity and trauma. I started with the agency as a volunteer and had such a positive experience that I joined the CFCC team as a staff psychologist almost a year ago. I could not be happier with my decision, and the amazing work I see being done by this agency for the children and families of Palm Beach County. The Center has many programs to address a wide range of mental/behavioral health needs of children and families and does so in a variety of settings (in their offices, schools, community, health care settings, and virtually during the pandemic). I am so very proud to be a part of such an amazing non-profit organization and to be able to be of service to my new community. Anne Holland Brown, PhD, Psychologist CFCC

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.
