Welcome to MCCS!

Is your child struggling to deal with changes in their day-to-day life at home or at school? Is your child  becoming increasingly withdrawn, angry, irritable, or having difficulty making or keeping friends? Overwhelmed by your child’s behavioral challenges and need help?

Are you feeling overwhelmed by the demands of your day-to-day life including school, work, and family life?  Struggling to find the motivation to complete your goals? Are you feeling stressed due to trauma, grief or loss, toxic relationships with peers or romantic partners? Need to find a healthier way to communicate to the important people in your life?


Milestones Counseling and Consulting Services helps children, adolescents, young adults and families develop skills for everyday life. Throughout our lives we experience milestone moments. Whether it be "first" experience such as the first day of (elementary, middle. or high school), riding a bike without training wheels, passing a driving test, or experiencing a significant loss, these milestones, as they occur, uniquely for individuals, can bring with them times of achievement, but can also present them with challenges and opportunities for growth.

Significant life events such as death of a loved one, a breakup, ending of a friendship, loss of a pet, illnesses of the client or within the family, and other changes in the family can affect mood, behavior, sleep, appetite and overall functioning in academic, work and social settings. These events often leave clients feeling sad, upset, confused,apathetic or angry. Behaviorally, they can present as short-tempered, irritable, or withdrawn. Parents often feel frustrated, upset, and worried as they see grades dropping, are routinely getting calls from the school, notice that their parent-child relationship becoming increasingly conflictual, and notice other changes in relationships.
