Community Resources

As much as children are resilient, it is important to keep in mind that counseling can be helpful for them as well. Even the little ones who are as little as three years old can benefit from counseling. Counselors who are trained to work with abused children are able to adapt therapy to all ages and make it fun while providing resources and skills. Below are some local resources in Tallahassee Florida that you may use if you or anyone you know has a child who has experienced abuse or if you would like more information.
