Clinical Counseling

Clincal Counseling

We all experience ups and downs in life. At some point just about everyone needs help coping with stress caused by life's many challenges.

Stress can be caused by family hardships, marital conflicts, parent/child issues, money concerns, frequent moves, health and environmental factors and other difficulties.

We may first try to discuss problems with family, friends or coworkers, but often this just isn't enough. Sometimes it helps to talk to an experienced counselor. Fleet and Family Support Centers (FFSC) offer confidential counseling by professional, licensed clinicians. Clinical counseling services are free of charge to active duty personnel and family members.

If you are troubled and need someone to talk to, you do not need a referral from your command, from Tri-Care or your primary care physician. Just call your local Fleet and Family Support Center to make an appointment. The command is not notified.

Services offered by FFSC include:

  • Short-term clinical counseling for individuals, groups and families.
  • Crisis intervention and/or response to disasters and other catastrophes.
  • Group counseling and/or educational groups.
  • Referral to other military and community resources.

How We Can Help

If you are the victim of domestic abuse or are aware of incidences of child abuse, learn more through the Family Advocacy Program pages of the website.

Clinical counseling is short-term counseling to help you sort things out and get to the heart of the problem. It can help you come up with a plan to deal with the problem or situation you are facing. It can also help by providing contact information for other services and resources in your community.

At Fleet and Family Support Centers, clinical counselors hold a masters or doctorate degree in counseling, social work, marriage and family or psychology. These professionals are experienced and fully qualified to assist those in need.

During your first appointment, you and your counselor will talk about your concerns and decide on the best way to tackle them.
