- One of the ways the City of Tempe actively supports its mission to make Tempe an excellent place to live is through its Counseling Program. The program, located within the Social Services office on the second floor of the Tempe Public Library, provides counseling for individuals, couples, children, adolescents and families, and has done so for over 25 years. Tempe residents who can’t obtain counseling services elsewhere (for example, through their health insurance or AHCCCS) are eligible for Tempe’s services.
A variety of counseling issues may be addressed including: depression, anxiety, stress, parent/child issues, partner relationship problems, sexual abuse, grief, trauma, domestic violence, substance abuse, and many other emotional and behavioral issues. The City’s therapists are Licensed Professional Counselors and Master’s Level Counselors. Fees are $5 to $40 per session based on family size and income. Counseling is strictly confidential.
The Counseling Program also provides free mediation services to Tempe residents looking to resolve conflicts or settle disputes among neighbors, individuals or community groups who have reached an impasse in communication.
