Outpatient Counseling Services

At the Mental Health Association in Passaic County, we understand that the decision to seek counseling services is not an easy one. The stigma of mental illness can make us hesitate to get help we need.  Many of us often try to ignore emotional and psychological challenges in hopes that they will improve on their own. Unfortunately, in many cases, time alone is not enough. A problem may become more pronounced and lead to other difficulties.

Whatever your particular challenges may be, there are causes for your present situation that may have been building over many years, or may be the result of a major life event. If this sounds familiar, it may be time to consider counseling.

Located at 404 Clifton Avenue, Clifton, New Jersey, our licensed professionals will help you identify the causes and develop strategies with you that empower you and facilitate real, lasting improvements. For many, these strategies involve individual counseling. For others, the involvement of a spouse or other family member may be advised.

One of our caring professionals can assist you in developing clarity and the coping skills necessary for your particular situation.
