One-On-One Services

We all need a little help from time to time, whether it with depression, anxiety, our relationships, grief, or chronic illness.  Our social workers use best practices to help give you tools to manage life’s ups and downs.  We can also help with navigating the social services system.

Grief Support Group

Losing a loved one is one of life’s most difficult challenges.  Join with others going through a similar experience to learn coping skills, and what to and receive peer support.  Please our website calendar for times and dates.

Chronic Pain Support Group

If you are suffering from chronic pain, whether due to arthritis, injury, Fibromyalgia or migraines, we offer a support group where people can share stories, coping skills, new research and more.  Please check our website calendar for dates and times.

Self Esteem Group

This group is designed to examine how we think about ourselves and how we receive information from the world around us.  In the 8-week program, participants learn how to break down mental barriers that hold us back from reaching their potential.  This program runs intermittently through the year.  Please consult our website calendar or speak to your AFHT provider for more information.
