In an ongoing effort to increase accessibility to free mental health and wellness services, we are adding new programs for active and retired FDNY firefighters and your family members. Contact us to set up an appointment or to join a group.

The group will address ways to help create more intimacy, improve communication, and show more appreciation and trust within the relationship. The group is run by Lauren Johnson, LMFT Thursdays in Queens, beginning this Thursday, October 30 at 1PM. Contact us with your interest and for specific questions contact Lauren directly.

Justin Kennard, LCSW will be providing counseling services in Riverdale on Wednesdays from 10-4, beginning November 5.

ACUPUNCTURE* / Staten Island
Acupuncture can be helpful in treating a number of symptoms. Due to the popularity of our Brooklyn program with Jessica Sowards, L.Ac. (Mondays and Wednesdays), we have added hours in Staten Island with Kristen Dolan-Murphy, L.Ac., M.S.T.O.M. on Wednesdays from 10AM-1PM, beginning November 12.

WOMEN’S GROUP* / Staten Island
The Women’s Group is a support group for wives, partners, & girlfriends of FDNY firefighters. The group is geared to provide emotional support to the important female in the firefighter’s life.

Kristina Hamilton, LCSW will be running a group every Tuesday at 3:30 in Staten Island beginning November 18. Contact us with your interest and for specific questions contact Kristina directly. The Brooklyn group run by Stephanie Cherry, LCSW continues to meet every other Thursday.
