Counseling

JFSA offers counseling to children, adolescents, adults,
individuals, couples, families and groups.

Today’s world provides unique challenges. JFSA understands these challenges and offers a clinical counseling program that provides our community a sensitive and caring atmosphere, unmatched in Clark County. 

At one time or another in our lives, most of us face a wide range of challenges, including issues that arise from bereavement, anxiety, depression, lifestyle transitioning, relationships, family dynamics, conflicts with children, behavioral problems, trauma or job stress. 

 

JFSA professionals understand the pressures of coping and assist individual clients and families to manage a wide range of issues and conflicts.  We help individuals and families from every background, religion, race, culture, sexual orientation or economic status.

Individual Therapy

At times it is important to have someone to help with balancing life’s difficult demands and providing coping tools.  JFSA counselors help with anger management, depression, suicide prevention in teenagers and adults, attention deficit and eating disorders.

Couples Counseling

JFSA professionals help partners to face a wide range of challenges, including issues that arise through life-cycle transitions, finances, family relationships, conflicts with children and teenagers, interfaith marriages, infidelity, job stress, midlife crisis, and issues surrounding separation and divorce.

Therapy is individualized to meet particular needs of each family or child.  Some of the problems that our therapists assist families with include child and adolescent/parent conflicts, communication, blended family issues, substance abuse, compulsive behaviors, separation/divorce, loss of loved ones, anger management, life-threatening/chronic illness and traumatic life events.
