MISSION
The Combat Center's Community Counseling Center offers important, in-depth services to individuals, couples, children and teens facing non-medical issues. Our primary focus is to educate these individuals on how best to address significant life issues in their earliest stages, before they escalate into major, more serious problems.


The Community Counseling Center clinicians are fully prepared to help individuals attain a proper balance in their lives, providing them with different, proven methods on how to deal with the various stressful factors facing them. This includes counseling to address interpersonal relationships, marital problems, stress management, adjustment issues (such as those related to returning home from a deployment), parenting skills, as well as grief and loss situations. When individuals are feeling particularly distressed, our Community Counseling Center clinicians can help them with the tools they need to better deal with their personal issues, before they put themselves, their friends, or family members at risk.


LICENSURE

Each clinician at the Community Counseling Center is a duly licensed clinical provider, credentialed in accordance with Marine Corps Policy. In the instance any individual should need to seek further assistance outside of the Community Counseling Center, our clinicians stand ready to provide referrals to medical treatment providers.


TIME & CONFIDENTIALITY

It is imperative that individuals with problems, or who think that they may have a problem requiring assistance, be seen in a timely manner; therefore, an appointment will always be offered within five days of initial contact with our office.

Of course, if time is of the essence, individuals may be seen and helped right away. Confidentiality paperwork is signed during our intake process, ensuring the privacy of every individual. Everyone should be fully aware that commands are never notified when a Marine or Sailor from their unit independently seeks services through the Community Counseling Center.
