For counseling children, bring a Divorce Decree if…

If you are divorced and want your child to attend counseling, you are REQUIRED to bring a copy of your divorce decree showing you have the right to place your child in counseling. The counselor will retain the copy of the divorce decree for our files.

Your counselor will answer any questions from you at the beginning of your first session. We will see you soon!
