Children and Family Life Counseling Services

A holistic approach that works

When a family is going through turmoil or a family member is in crisis, the experience can seem overpowering, with ripple effects well beyond the privacy of the home. But Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Greater Philadelphia is here to provide guidance and counseling. We consider all aspects of a family’s or individual’s life and relationships, and provide the full spectrum of supportive services on a wide range of issues. Our licensed clinical social workers use several established techniques and an eclectic approach to evidence-based interventions. Our fee structure is case-by-case and may include a sliding scale, Medicare or additional assistance (learn more on our Financial Assistance page).
