VIRTUAL COUNSELING SESSIONS

Due to COVID-19 hitting us mid march, things have changed quickly and drastically. While many business were put on hold, here at the Children's Home Society, we know that we can't put our clients on hold. That is why all of our clinicians are all Telehealth Certified, which mean they are able to see clients virtually. Although we are open to see clients in person, this is another option for those that are not yet comfortable coming in or that live out of area.
