Freedom House Counseling Services

Freedom House Counselors provide crisis-intervention and supportive counseling for clients and their non-offending significant others.  Counseling can be done on an individual, group, or family basis. The primary goal of these services is to help clients begin a journey of empowerment and return to pre-trauma functioning. 

Our approach is client-centered, recognizing that each client’s needs are different, and that they will be empowered in nondirective ways to make their own choices. We also have staff who specialize in counseling children and teens.
