Counseling at Family Service of Barrington Area

The Barrington office has, for nearly 50 years, been focused on individual counseling and counseling groups.  Ongoing in the Barrington Area is the “Women Coming Together” group, which is designed to bring together women of all ages facing issues including returning to the work force, unemployment, divorce, caring for elderly parents or an ill relative, and facing retirement with limited resources.
