Practice Information
JFS has experienced, compassionate counselors who can help.

The goal of the JFS Child, Adult and Family Therapy Program is to restore or improve the sense of well-being and functioning of children, adults and families.

The clinicians at JFS specialize in working with families and offer an approach that emphasizes the development of strengths and improved relatedness. We focus on treating the family, whatever its makeup, and we can address a wide range of problems with children, parents and adults.

Families can be our first line of defense in the world, or they can make things worse … sometimes both.

We provide a complete range of services to individuals and families, including nontraditional families such as those undergoing the transitions of divorce, remarriage, illness and loss. Families in transition have been found to put children at higher risk for mental health problems; therefore JFS has targeted early intervention with this population.

The result of engaging the family in treatment can provide the prevention of further stresses and breakdown for children.

Our clinicians treat individuals for problems such as depressions, anxiety, panic, OCD, eating disorders, symptoms related to traumatic experiences, etc. These not only effect the client’s mood, but often how they are doing at work, school or home.

JFS accepts most insurance, including MassHealth, Medicare, Fallon Community Health Plan, Pacificare, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Tufts Health Plan, United Behavioral Health, Aetna, Cigna…

How do we know our treatment works? Our clients tell us!

In our survey of all clients when treatment ends, 94% report an increase in well-being as a result of coming to treatment, 95% report better functioning, and 95% report improvement on the problem that brought them into treatment.

JFS Counseling is generously supported by an allocation from United Way of Central Massachusetts.
