Friends Counseling Service offers psychological support to members of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, their families and regular attenders and staff. Services include individual psychotherapy, couples counseling and family therapy. Consultation on Quaker parenting and support on issues of substance use and abuse are also available.

What About Cost?
Counseling fees are evaluated on a client’s ability to pay. Financial assistance is available to help cover costs. Meetings may choose to financially subsidize their members and attenders by making donations to the Counseling Service. The intention is to make counseling available and affordable to all Friends in Philadelphia Yearly Meeting.
