JFCS Counseling Services

Providing Everything You Need for Good Mental Health and Wellness

Our mental health counseling and wellness services emphasize prevention rather than only treating illnesses or diseases. Therapy for mental health includes: mental health treatment, mental health support, mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, PTSD counseling, and OCD therapy. JFCS counselors provide mental health information, resources, and support for individuals to make informed decisions about their health, adopt healthy habits, and prevent the onset of diseases or manage existing conditions. Our Recovery Services Department offers IOP and OP level groups and individual counseling to individuals from the surrounding community. We offer co-occurring counseling and medication management for clients suffering from both mental health and substance use disorders.

Recovery Services

Our outpatient treatment programs are part of a comprehensive approach to treating gambling and substance abuse disorders. These programs provide mental health therapy, counseling, education, and support to individuals who do not require round-the-clock care and can live at home while attending treatment.


We offer IOP and OP level groups and individual recovery services to individuals from the surrounding community who are interested in achieving a lifestyle free from addictions. We work with local law enforcement and other agencies to coordinate each person’s care as needed. We support MAT treatment as indicated, which is coordinated with local agencies. Co-occurring counseling and medication management with a psychiatrist is available.

Adult Mental Health Counseling

If you or someone you know is suffering from depression, anxiety, grief and loss, or any other mental health conditions, we can help. Our licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs/LSWs) provide confidential psychotherapy in either our Asbury Park or
Morganville locations, as well as via telehealth.
We accept most insurance plans, managed care referrals and EAP's (Employee Assistance Plans). Counseling fees are on a sliding scale for those without insurance.

Adult Mental Health

Child & Adolescent Counseling

A youth’s mental health plays a crucial role in their physical and intellectual development and is as important as physical health in affecting how they think, feel, and act.

Our therapists counsel clients with challenges such as depression, anxiety, attention- deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), behavioral issues, and a variety of learning disorders. Therapists also counsel children on coping with divorced or separating parents, peer relationships, school refusal, self-esteem, and sexual/gender identification. For younger children (above age 6), who often are unable to communicate verbally, we offer play therapy. This allows children to express their feelings through art, activities, and toys.


Our therapists also help young adults to navigate their expanding new world, by giving them the guidance that they can use now and as they become adults.
Parents are educated and are incorporated into the treatment plan so that they can provide intervention and additional support at home.

NJ Child Assault Prevention Project

We are proud to be an affiliate agency of NJCAP, known as CAP, which is a statewide child abuse prevention program with its central headquarters located in New Jersey. NJCAP is supported and funded through the NJ Department of Children and Families

Since its inception in 1985, CAP has trained over four million children, parents and teachers to prevent peer abuse or bullying, stranger abduction and known adult assault. CAP seeks to integrate the best resources of a community in an effort to reduce a child or young person’s vulnerability to any type of verbal, physical and/or sexual abuse. New Jersey’s CAP projects work closely with the local school districts, parent/teacher associations and home school groups, and other community groups.

The CAP motto is: “All Children Deserve to be Safe, Strong and Free.”
