JFS counseling services help people with loss, depression, and anxiety. We can help you on your path to emotional wellness.
At JFS, we take a collaborative, person-centered approach to counseling. We talk about the things you want to change in your life and work together to help you achieve your goals. Our therapists possess years of experience and you can rely on them to bring their expertise, compassion, and heart to the process.
