Welcome to Child & Family Counseling Group!

We are here for your family...especially now.

At Child & Family Counseling Group, we are practicing and supporting COVID-19 protocols.

Tele-therapy (connecting with your therapist and working through issues online) has been shown to have excellent results - it will do until we can meet in person again.

Beth and Marté on Introducing Therapy to Children

Marté Matthews, LMFT, MFC Clinical Director and Beth Proudfoot, LMFT, Founder, Child & Family Counseling Group, Inc..

IN-PERSON SESSIONS

Starting November 2020, Child & Family Counseling Group is offering limited client sessions inside our office for counseling services. This will require special arrangements with your therapist. All in-person services will be at the discretion of the therapist. An additional consent form will be provided by your therapist. The family will read it, initial each line, sign and return the form.


Sessions can also be held in person outdoors, by request, also at the discretion of our staff.


Masks will be worn by the client and therapist throughout any sessions inside the office. Disposable face masks, hand sanitizer and tissues are available here.  


If you are a current client and wish to schedule a session in-person, inside our office or outdoors, please talk with your CFCG therapist. If you are interested in starting counseling in-person, please talk about your child and family’s situation and needs with our Clinical Director, Marté J. Matthews at 408-351-1044 ext 3.

YES, WE ARE DOING TELE-THERAPY NOW!*

 

We know that we are "essential." All of our therapists are still working, mostly through teleconferencing.

 

  • Parent coaching is more important now than ever before as families are stressed to the max. Our clients appreciate not having to commute to get to our offices... and the tips and tricks we have up our sleeves to work together with parents to help kids to cooperate respectfully and manage their emotions during this challenging time. 

 

  • And, yes, we are still doing individual work with children! We have been working hard on developing new and fun therapeutic activities for children online, which means that we can be effective even with young children. The tweens and teens, we've found, "kinda prefer" to see their therapists online!​

  • AND... we've been working hard to be more helpful to our clients and to the wider community... virtually.

AVAILABLE NOW ONLINE:

  • Beth Proudfoot's Trailblazing Parenting Class is available online on our Classes page. And her new adaptation of these classes called "Parenting During the Pandemic" is up on Facebook. Search for the Santa Clara County Public Library Facebook page, then click on Videos. 

  • We have several new blogs up, and more coming every day, about surviving and thriving with the kids at home. 

  • Email info@childfamilygroup.com to get on our email list. We are working on new emails with resources for families right now.

 

Take good care! Stay healthy! And feel free to call or email if you'd like to set up a session with any of us.
