Counseling Services

West County Community Services provides free counseling through a variety of programs for youth, adults, and seniors who are at risk, disabled – physically or emotionally – and need emergency or on-going help to improve the quality of their lives.

Senior Peer Counseling

 

Volunteer Senior Peer Counselors are caring individuals who offer empathetic listening and support to help other seniors share concerns, and gain a healthier perspective and better emotional balance. Senior Peer Counselors are all seniors themselves who volunteer their time to visit other seniors in their homes, providing 12 sessions of supportive counseling free of cost. All Senior Peer Counselors have completed training and receive ongoing supervision by a licensed professional. Support groups for Senior Men and Senior Women are also offered at various locations in Sonoma County.

For more information or to request services call the Senior Peer Counseling intake line at 823-1640 ext. 380.
