Our Licensed Clinical Social Worker is also able to arrange to meet with clients in the home and in residential facilities for those who are unable to come to our offices. 

We specialize in treating depression, anxiety, parenting challenges, grief, trauma, adjustment disorders, relationship problems, stress management, healthy aging, and LGBT support.  Our approach is strengths-based and tailored to each unique individual we serve.  Our therapy sessions are safe, private, and confidential.  We will always meet you where you are.

Elder Club Volunteers Needed for all program days!

JFS offers volunteers an opportunity to assist in our rapidly growing Elder Club! Volunteers have a lot of fun while providing a wonderful service to Elder Club participants. Due to growing enrollment in the program on Tuesdays and Thursdays, we may be adding an additional program day to accommodate more older adults. But we can only do that if we have enough volunteers to assist our staff. If you would like to help out in the Club from 10:30am-2pm on Tuesdays or Thursdays, (or Wednesdays in the future), please contact ariella@jfswnc.org .
