Sunny Glen Counseling Services

For over 80 years, Sunny Glen Children's Home has served children in need of homes.  In the summer of 2017, they added counseling to their services.  Counseling services are now available to all of the community -- not just to residents.  We offer individual, couple's, family, and group counseling to people of all ages.  We have a beautiful counseling center with 4 offices and a play therapy room.  Look for the "Poenisch Counseling Center" on the Sunny Glen Campus.  Our building has been named after the Poenisch family in honor of their significant contributions towards building the counseling center.  Se habla español!
