Interview with Paul Gionfriddo MHA Exec. Dir. by Chris Cuomo of CNN on his “New Day” Show
Making a difference in the lives of families in Central Virginia—one by one.
Couples & Kids is a counseling center which focuses on the needs of adults and children who struggle with the challenges of everyday life. Using individual, couple, and family therapy, we help you face problems like divorce, relationship problems, anger, depression, grief and loss, behavior problems, trauma and abuse, parenting, and much more.
If you think there is a stigma associated with counseling, put the traditional images out of your mind. Couples & Kids is like walking into a relaxing room of sunshine and joy. Along the walls, posters praise the joys of childhood, love, and families. Games and puzzles ﬁll tables and childrens’ books line the shelves just waiting for a moment when a parent and child have time for a story. It’s a place for families to work out their problems.
