Clinical Services

The Faulk Center for Counseling provides free and low-cost counseling services to people of all ages, from children to the elderly. Group, individual, and family therapy is provided using a variety of treatment modalities. Clinical services are provided by graduate students in training and volunteer mental health professionals under the close supervision of licensed psychologists.

Services and programs are available at our location in Boca Raton, and at off-site locations in various senior communities and local schools, and through Telehealth.

Initial Evaluations

Except for participation in support groups, all clients receiving Center services must first complete an initial evaluation, which is a comprehensive clinical interview. After completing an intake form, a prospective client will meet with one of our clinicians for about one hour. Upon completion of the intake interview, our clinicians discuss the issues and needs of the client with our licensed psychologists at a weekly staffing meeting. The treatment team makes recommendations for services, which may be any one of the Center’s services or services provided elsewhere, depending on the client’s needs.

The intake clinician will contact the client within one week of the initial evaluation to present the treatment team’s recommendations. The fee for the initial evaluation is $65 and must be prepaid. This fee may be reduced for those clients with a demonstrated inability to pay.

Individual, Couples, and Family Therapy

The Center also offers individual, couples and family therapy for those clients who demonstrate a clinical need for individual counseling. The cost for this therapy is $65 per session, although the fee may be reduced for those clients with a demonstrated inability to pay. In order to receive individual therapy services, clients must first complete an initial evaluation.

Wellness Programs

The Faulk Center for Counseling recognizes that mental health is not confined to isolated moments of distress but is deeply intertwined with every aspect of an individual’s life. We understand that achieving holistic well-being requires a multifaceted approach that extends beyond traditional counseling and support group services. In acknowledgment of this reality, we are delighted to introduce a new initiative: wellness programs designed to complement our existing services. These programs are tailored to empower individuals to actively engage in their mental health journey by providing them with a diverse range of tools, resources, and support networks. Through these programs, we aim to foster a sense of community where individuals can find solidarity, understanding, and encouragement from others facing similar challenges. By prioritizing emotional wellness and resilience, we hope to equip our clients with the skills and strategies they need to navigate life’s ups and downs with greater confidence and stability. We are committed to creating a space where individuals feel valued, supported, and empowered to prioritize their mental health and well-being.

Psychological Testing

The Center offers reduced cost comprehensive psychological evaluations for children and adults. Many parents seek our services for testing for their children, and our reports can be used for recommendations to schools regarding placement, ESE (gifted testing), FCAT testing, SAT preparation and diagnosis of learning disabilities.

Senior Outreach Support (SOS)

The Senior Outreach Support (SOS) program provides weekly phone calls to older adults living in Palm Beach and roward Counties. Participants are connected with a clinician in training from the Faulk Center for Counseling and together will plan a time to talk each week on the phone. There is no agenda for the phone call and conversation is organic in nature and driven by what the older adult participant is interested in. Calls are available in English, Spanish, and Creole and typically last from 10-20 minutes. The SOS program provides older adults the opportunity to build connections, address isolation, create conversation, receive support, and decrease loneliness.

Thanks to a generous grant from The Jim Moran Foundation, SOS is provided at no cost. If you are interested in learning more or participating, give us a call at 561-483-5300.
