National Family Resiliency Center - NFRC is a Comprehensive Mental Health Center Offering an Array of Therapy Services & Programs for All Ages
Our licensed counselors have decades-long experience working with individuals and families who are affected by family transitions. It's difficult to know what to expect during a divorce or family change. You don't have to go through it alone. Our therapists will help you and/or your family move through each stage of the transition and accept that change is a normal part of life.

Our counselors work with all family compositions, and offer therapy to children, teens, adults, couples and families. Our counselors specialize in all areas of family transition, such as separation, divorce, pre-marital, single parenting, blended families, co-parenting, mental health disorders, and significant loss. NFRC counselors also work with clients who have challenges not related to family transitions such as anxiety, school related stress, grief, and familial stress.

COVID-19 UPDATE  - Until further notice, NFRC is offering teletherapy and virtual programs.  *Reduced fees are available*
