Court Mandated Anger Management

Persons 16 years or older who have difficulty expressing or controlling anger may be eligible for treatment. Some clients are referred by the court system after formal legal charges have been filed as a result of behavior.


Divorce Mediation

Couples who wish for an affordable route through the divorce process can consult with our licensed divorce mediators. Mediation offers a positive, and future focused way to resolve disputes. Participants have an active role in making durable decisions and agreements. The average mediation is finalized in a few hours. Our mediators are approved by the Will Country Court and work with divorce, separation, custody and visitation issues.
