Counseling Services

The Women's Center understands that life can be difficult. Sometimes we begin to feel helpless, frantic, or simply overwhelmed. Problems in intimate relationships, conflicts in families or stress at work can often create havoc in our lives, leaving us depleted and confused, feeling uncertain and alone. The Women's Center of Jacksonville offers help.

The Women's Center is a safe place where you can speak freely about your feelings, your problems, your life. We are a helpful place where you can find answers. We are a supportive place where you can make productive changes. We are a nurturing place for the mind, body, and spirit. Our highly trained staff are dedicated to providing sensitive and supportive help in individual, couples, and group therapy sessions. Because we are committed to serving all women, fees for counseling services are offered on a sliding-scale basis.
