Do you have a blended family, and are wondering how to handle the change? Are you having trouble communicating with your children? Did you recently go through a divorce and need some assistance learning to care for your children separately?

Families can be very complicated and they are all different. When something big happens in life, like the joining together of two unique families, even the simple things in life can be confusing at times. Sometimes families need to sit down and talk with an expert about how to go about taking the next step, or how to handle the situation at hand. Our counselors are trained to give you the guidance you need and prepare you for what lies ahead.

Finding the right counselor

Sometimes it’s difficult to find the perfect counselor for you. Here at Total Life Counseling Center, we have skilled counselors who are approachable and can help you with any situation. Our counselors are experts in their fields and have very diverse backgrounds, so we will be able to match you with a counselor who best meets your family’s needs. Our therapists are called upon often to provide expert advice on family issues by television, radio, and print media, so you can be sure to get the best counseling available!

Family Testimonial

“Well let me start by letting you know i have been blessed. I went to court in August and was alittle scared, I saw my daughters mother attorney and the mother of my daughters prepared to battle full custody. I gave [TLC’s Counselors Report] the report to my attorney and she immediately gave a copy to the attorney representing the mother of my daughter. At that point the mother [x-wife] put her head down and indicated to her attorney to give me what i want. I could not beleived it, she gave me the custody after a 5 yr battle. Your report was seen by both attorneys and by the judge who indicated the report came from someone with excellent credentials and that it was very strong in my favor. I don’t have words to express my gratitude for your excellent service. You just saved 3 small childrens future/lives. This world needs more people like you and i hope total life counseling knows what a great asset they have, Thank you.”
Thankful Parent

Blended Families

Did you know that 95.5 million adults have some type of step-family relationship? What about the fact that of the first marriages that end in divorce, 75% will get married again? Blended families are a large part of today’s world and the struggles that come with these types of families can be challenging when you don’t know what to expect or who to turn to for help. Counselors recommend that the first step for a couple beginning a new blended family should be pre-marital counseling. This ensures that any past issues are dealt with, opening the way for the new family to start a fresh, new life. If the family is already joined together and is experiencing problems, your counselor and you can create a plan that will directly address those issues. Total Life Counseling offers all of this and more, with professional counselors who will work closely with you and everyone in your family to guide you through the confusion of being a blended family.

Moms and Me Workshop

Are you and your daughter constantly fighting with each other? Do you have trouble connecting with one another? Are you frustrated and looking for some guidance? TLC’s Moms and Me Workshop can help you work through the problems; strengthen the bond between you, and so much more! One of our knowledgeable counselors, Jada Jackson, facilitates this group and teaches you and your daughter key information to help build up your relationship. The class is not only informative, it is interactive and a great tool for self-exploration. The information given will be practical and helpful, and the workshop atmosphere is small and intimate to give you the best interaction possible!


Court Ordered & Co-Parenting Class

Divorce is difficult for everyone involved but it is especially difficult when children are involved. The state of Florida requires couples with children going through a divorce to take a course on how to handle the separation and how to help their children adjust to the new situation. At Total Life Counseling, this course is only four hours long and is done in person with a caring counselor and family expert, not a videotape or website. This counselor will work with the parent and teach them the techniques and information that they need to get through this new, confusing time. Whether you are required to take this class or simply know that it would be helpful for your children and yourselves, TLC has the experts that you need to teach you and help you along this difficult path. Our counselors may also work with your attorneys to assist in developing a visitation plan that will best suit the needs of the children, especially if a child has special needs.


Family Mediation

Divorce is difficult, but when children are involved everything becomes much more complicated. It can be hard to know how to handle a divorce while also trying to raise your child in the best possible manner. Sometimes you may need a little help, and that is where family mediation comes in. Working with a family mediator can be very helpful for your family if you want to make decisions on things like communicating on medical or school decisions, or figuring out when each of you has your child or children on certain holidays. When you work with a family mediator to come up with a plan, it can make for a much smoother transition into divorce for you and for your child.
