When a child becomes seriously ill, the entire family has to navigate uncharted waters — filled with physical, emotional, relational and financial challenges. To help find balance, we provide free, confidential, counseling and support services to children and their families.
Focusing on the children and families of the Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children, we stand with children, parents, siblings and their extended family to help them navigate the sea of emotions that are normal when facing this type of health-related adversity.
Some common feelings families often experience include
- strained relationships
- low self-esteem
- loss and bereavement
At Children’s Harbor Family Center we offer a safe space for bonding, growth, and healing. Every individual and family has unique needs. We understand this and provide multiple settings to accommodate individual needs and preferences.
Our counseling services can be held in a private office at the Children’s Harbor Family Center which is connected to the Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children, inside the patient’s hospital room, outpatient clinic, community or other setting. We meet individuals and families in a space that is most suitable to bring about positive change.
You will always be treated with respect, compassion and kindness.
