Counseling Services

Our team of dedicated, trained, and qualified counselors have a wealth of experience and training and support our clients as they seek overall wellness. Damien Center also offers psychiatric care to our clients who are enrolled in counseling services.

Clients can access any of our counseling services by contacting their Care Coordinator, whether at Damien Center or another care site.

Mental Health Services
