The Counseling Center of GCJFCS

counseling in a safe, private, and compassionate environment

Services are made available to all members of the community, regardless of race, culture, or creed. Qualified therapists provide counseling in a safe, private, and compassionate environment. Counseling is provided in the clients home or school and our therapists work in all three counties, Pinellas, Pasco and Hillsborough. Our team of professionals includes access to on-site psychiatric services and medication management.

Counseling is available short-term or long, depending on your specific needs. Therapy is tailored to accommodate the various circumstances:

  • Individuals
  • Children
  • Adolescents
  • Families
  • Couples
  • What our clients are saying about our services:

    I went from being very sick to the high level I’m at. My mother passed and everyone marvels at my abilities — which shows I’m very strong.

    The Counseling Center is focusing on my recovery from alcoholism. I have been told by family members that they see a difference. I too, feel that I am benefitting, growing & learning from my sessions.I am very grateful for the help I am receiving.

    My therapist is a professional; resourceful and caring. She is an outstanding therapist that has saved my relationships with myself and my boyfriend. She is providing tools in my recovery.

    My counselor is and has been a blessing in my life. Her innate abilities to zero in, and her compassion, makes her beyond anyone’s aspirations to have not only a qualified counselor, but someone extraordinarily special. Thank you, Gulf Coast JFCS.
