Military & Family Life Counselors
Military & Family Life Counselors are available on MCAS New River to provide you free and confidential counseling services. MFLCs are available to listen, and to help service members, spouses, family members, children and staff in areas such as marriage, deployment, separation, parenting, sibling issues, grief, loss, stress, daily life, transition and more.
All MFLCs are licensed professional mental health counselors (LCSW, LPC, LMFT, etc.) who provide non-medical solution-focused counseling to military personnel and their families. MFLCs assist people to explore alternate solutions to current daily life stressors. MFLCs are considered an augmentation, not a replacement, for existing family support services.
The MFLCs' work day is flexible; however, it is a 40 hour work week. This provides the MFLCs the opportunity to meet with people prior to work, after work, and to support those who work a shift schedule. Additionally, it enables the MFLCs to provide support at base or command events and to facilitate workshops or other groups.
