Counseling and Coaching are available through Life Center with experienced counselors and certified coaches.
The Life Center provides individual and family counseling for victims of traumatic loss or survivors of crime incident. Specifically, those victims of Homicide, DUI, Hit and Run, Robbery, Sexual Assault, Physical Assault, Domestic Violence, Domestic Terrorism, Hate Crimes, and many more. We are able to provide these services free of charge for Victims of Crime (VOCA) through a State of Florida VOCA grant.
Finding a supportive place where some of the deepest and most painful issues of life are explored with professionally trained staff can make an immeasurable difference in working through traumatic losses. Individuals ($75) and Families (3+, $100) are motivated to change their perceptions through therapeutic techniques that help to reduce the fear, panic, anger, anxiety and somatic symptoms often associated with post-traumatic stress, due to traumatic death, illness or crime incident.
We have recently expanded our services to provide assistance with those experiencing challenges in their life. We provide a wellness perspective for Individuals ($75) and Families (3+, $100) that are experiencing life challenges such as stress, depression, and loneliness. Our Counselors/Coaches utilize many forms of coping skill techniques, personal growth concepts and modalities to reach one’s goals toward wellbeing.
Workshop and Group participation encourages members to develop strategies for changing beliefs and behaviors, to live more productively, and to improve social functioning. Through interaction with trained staff, they learn to support one another through the stages of grief and recovery. Their sharing may heal the pain and isolation of loss.
