Individual and Family Counseling

Individual and family counseling is available at no set fee to children, teenagers, and young adults (age 19-21) anticipating or grieving the loss of a parent, grandparent, sibling, close relative or friend.  To set up an appointment, or for more information, please contact (205) 638-7481.

We provide a safe place for children and teenagers to creatively express feelings for which they might not even have words.  Through art, play, and expression, children and teenagers can find hope.


Group Counseling

Group counseling is offered for children and teenagers.  Our children and teen groups are short term groups that allow individuals the opportunity to share with others that have had similar experiences.  Other loss specific groups may be offered to meet the needs of clients.  The Amelia Center requires an initial interview with one of our counselors before being allowed to participate.  To set up an appointment, or for more information, please contact (205) 638-7481.

Intake Forms
These forms are to be completed before your first session with one of our counselors.  You can download/print these and complete them prior to your first appointment to expedite the process.
