Description
Our strength-based individual counseling helps women and girls discover the resources and abilities that they have and to use these strengths to change their futures.  Having an experienced, confidential and compassionate counselor to talk with from time to time is something that every woman should have the opportunity to access.  Counseling is offered on a sliding scale based on personal ability to pay regardless of insurance status.  Single Moms Support Groups recognize that raising a family alone can be very challenging and isolating.  In a safe and informal environment, the groups encourage women to share and learn from each other, to talk through difficult times or situations and to share joyful experiences.  Free babysitting is available on site for children 12 years and younger during the group.

Long term Success
This program has steadily grown over the past 4 years.  Over 25 women have attended the single moms group, many for the entire four years.  Long-term success is measured by how well these moms can cope with their family situations.  Counseling has grown over the past 4 years primarily by word of mouth.  This is one of the few counseling centers that provides a sliding scale for fees based on self-reporting of incomes.
Program Success Monitored By
The program is focused on helping women identify their own strengths and abilities to reach their personal goals.  Clients create their own goals in partnership with the counselor who documents progress on an individual basis using case note documentation in client files.
