Our Programs

Bridges provides counseling services to the community, and training opportunities for individuals in the field of counseling.

Counseling Services (Darlene’s Program)

While we accept insurance, our counseling services are provided to primarily low- and moderate-income families and individuals (adults and children) by licensed and Master’s level counselors. To qualify for services, individuals must provide proof of need.

  • Individual (child or adult)
  • Family
  • Couples
  • Group
  • In-school group sessions

Domestic Violence Counseling (Free)

Domestic violence counseling is provided by trained, certified and licensed counselors. Counseling and advocacy services are provided strictly for victims and their children. These free services focus on empowering women to achieve their goals and overcome the trauma they have experienced. Our advocates can provide help with a variety of needs such as; domestic violence education; legal system information, and education on the cycle of abuse.

  • Free counseling for victims of domestic violence and their children
  • Free counseling for children who have been raised in domestic violence homes
  • Support groups
  • Advocacy

Because Bridges to a New Day specializes in providing the counseling services listed above, we refer out individuals seeking services for batterer intervention, substance abuse, and/or psychiatric treatment.

Eligibility: We refuse no one based on location. We reserve the right to determine if our services are a good fit for your needs.

Fees: We are a Blue Cross/Blue Shield provider, and as a courtesy, we will bill your insurance provider directly. Fees may be reduced based on proven financial need. Please call for details.
