Waterford Youth and Family Services provides counseling services to Waterford families. Free/reduced fee counseling or case management services are offered to Waterford children between the ages of 5 to 18 and their families. To schedule an appointment, or for more information about this service or to request an intake, please call: 860-444-5848
Families must be seeking assistance with child-related problems. Common issues include divorce, anxiety, depression, behavior management, family dynamics, and sibling rivalry. In general, services are provided on a short-term basis with up to 12 weeks of services provided. Continuation of services is determined on a case-by-case basis with consideration given to the client-clinician relationship, age of the client, availability of Husky A or B insurance, family circumstances, clinical diagnosis, and waiting list. The clinicians are not available on a 24-hour basis. Clients needing on-call services are referred to other local clinicians.
Counseling services are provided on a sliding-scale fee, with a maximum payment of $30 per session. The determination of a fee is made during the initial intake. A fee may be adjusted if circumstances change during the duration of service.
