A note from our Executive Director
Ready to go!
2024 is here and we are excited, ready, and oh-so motivated to get the year started. In the closing weeks of December, our staff participated in listening sessions, learning about what we accomplished in 2023 and what big things we have on the horizon in 2024…And there are a lot of big things!
We are gearing up to open our Drop-In Center, a place where anyone can come in and have their mental health care needs met within moments rather than months. On January 11th and 12th, our team underwent a training by the Denver Center for Solution Focused Brief Therapy. SFBT is about pragmatic, goal-oriented interventions that respect the clients’ expertise in their lives and lived experiences.
In 2024, we are also looking forward to opening our Substance Use Clinic. This clinic will meet a need for treatment left vacant this past summer. We are currently in the process of getting our Article 32 License and will make an announcement when the clinic is ready to open.
This past October, we were also awarded a grant from NYS Office for Mental Health so that we, in partnership with the Canajoharie School District, can open an on-site clinic at the East Hill School, providing greater access to services.
Our work and our programs have always expanded and changed to meet the needs of our communities. As we enter the new year, this adaptation and growth continues – and we are ready to welcome more neighbors through our doors for care.
Thank you, as always, for your continued support of The Family Counseling Center. Your advocacy, donations, and belief in our mission mean the world not only to me, but to our community as a whole.
The Drop-In Center at TFCC
We are always looking for the best way to meet the needs of our community. For many of us, the emotional strain of the last two years has not only impacted our mental health, it has, in some way, removed the stigma of seeking help.

Starting the New Year with a plan for mental health
We recognize the pressure many of us feel to set our resolutions for the New Year. Focus has begun to shift away from resolution setting toward two separate avenues – Goal Setting and Intention Setting, both of which can have a positive impact in our overall mental health.
