Services Provided

At Circle of Friends Services, we believe that all individuals, both adults and children, can cope with traumatic life events and go on to lead productive lives with proper help and support. It is the goal of Circle of Friends Services to provide that help and support through trauma-focused mental health therapy provided by our skilled and caring professionals.

individual/family Therapy

As our work with each client begins, we assess what is the best path to bring the client and the family to permanency. Our therapists use a combination of individual and family therapy to address the changing needs of the family unit as they move along this path. Our therapists are Adoption Cometent Trained and receive extensive training in treatment of trauma.

infant mental health

Therapists specially trained in working with the Zero to Five population provide early intervention strategies for children and their caretakers. Research has proven that early intervention with this population is vital for secure attachment and healthy emotional growth and development.

supervised therapeutic visitations

Visitation between children and caretakers following removal to foster care can be stressful. Our therapists mentor parents and children in a therapeutic setting to make visitation part of a healing experience.

COMPREHENSIVE behavioral health assessment

All children sheltered in the state of Florida receive this comprehensive assessment as the initial step in planning for the child’s permanency. The child’s developmental, medical, educational and emotional needs are all assessed as a way to develop a meaningful plan for the child’s successful future.


Adoption is a lifelong journey that involves all members of the newly formed family. The Post Adoption Support Group is designed to help families through the “Normative Crises” of every adoption. These normative crises are usually connected to the core issues of any adoption, including the experiences of loss,
memories of the biological family, and post traumatic symptoms of the adoptive child.
