Sometimes life is challenging and children can struggle with how to move forward or deal with problems.
Jewish Family Service Houston's (JFS) children’s mental health program provides counseling to children, adolescents and their families. Therapy helps children and teens learn and identify solutions to handle life’s obstacles. We provide children and teens ages 2 to 17 with a variety of services such as individual, play, expressive, family and group therapy, as well as academic advocacy, psychoeducation, parent coaching and support and referrals.
