Military and Family Life Counselors
The MFLC services are designed to offer extra support to assist with the unique challenges that military family’s experience. The MFLC Counselors are licensed clinicians who have demonstrated expertise in working with children. They can provide short-term non-medical counseling support in a variety of different ways: through individual meetings with children, presentations about life skills issues, skill- building group discussions, and meeting with parents and families at their request for additional counseling/coaching support. While meeting with children, MFLC Counselors always remain in line of sight of a teacher, staff member, or a parent.
The primary focus of the Military & Family Life Counseling Program is prevention, education, and counseling support; the services are provided continually and no case records or documentation is kept. The Counselors do not assess or diagnose and when they encounter more in depth issues/ diagnosis, they offer to connect military families with other helping agencies available on the installation or in the community.
Some of the common issues that MFLCs help with are:
Stress management and coping skills
Anger management/conflict resolution
Deployment and reintegration issues
Feelings associated with separation and divorce
Grief and loss reactions
Self esteem and confidence
All military families will be given the opportunity to consent for their children or opt-out from this free service, provided by Department of Defense. For more information about MFLC services contact MFLC on site directly at 843-708-2661.
