Anew Day continues to grow adding a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern (MFTI) program. This new addition provides services that enhance the Lay Counseling program. The Interns can provide marriage, family, and child therapy for the general public. This program compliments the lay counseling program already in place with two differences: first, lay counselors at Anew Day meet with individual adults and teens only and while they do wonderful work with this population, there is sometimes a need for more. MFT Interns are able to provide marriage, couple, family and child therapy, as well as therapy for individuals, with issues that cannot be met in a lay counselor program. Second, there is a charge for this service. This charge is based on a sliding scale with a beginning low fee structured to reach those with insufficient funds to go to licensed clinicians.

Our counselors come from varied backgrounds with life experiences that span the spectrum of hurts and victories. They’ve “been there, done that”. They are made up of a team of dedicated and loving men and women who want to make a difference. Initial training is by a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and each counselor receives ongoing weekly supervision. Our counselors are not professionals, they are “lay-counselors” who have lived through challenges and understand the need for support during difficult seasons of life.
We know the tragic statistics related to emotional and relational issues permeating our culture. We also know that with caring support, lives can truly be changed from seemingly hopeless and empty to purposeful, productive and satisfying lives.
