Licensed Counselor On-Call ( R-00076683-OTHLOC-PL-2D0904 )
The primary responsibility of the Military Family Life Counseling (MFLC) program is to provide a full scope of Adult Behavioral Health services to military service members and their families throughout the U.S. and at select installations in Europe and Asia.
MFLC Adult counselors provide non-medical counseling services to military service members and their families. Non-medical counseling is supportive in nature and addresses: living conditions; life skills; improving relationships at home and at work; stress management; adjustment issues, such as those related to returning from deployment; marital problems; parenting, fear, grief and loss.
Counseling modalities consist of individual, family, couples and groups. MFLC may be based out of an installation’s family center, a National Guard and Reserve Joint Force HQ or other facilities and will provide proactive outreach to service members and their families via walk-around counseling.
