What We Do
Outreach Teen & Family Services is a non-profit, community-based counseling agency located in the South Hills area of Pittsburgh. Outreach provides professional, confidential, affordable counseling to young people and their families, with services to address anger management, family problems, school-related issues, depression, anxiety, drug & alcohol and myriad other issues. Clients are seen within a short period of time from the initial request for services.
Outreach Teen & Family Services is an invaluable resource to adolescents and families in distress. We employ 19 part-time counselors who hold a minimum of a master’s degree, and one behavioral specialist. These professionals have an average of 15 years of counseling experience with adolescents, ranging from eight to 36 years of experience. New clients’ specific needs are matched with a counselor’s area of expertise. Some of the many issues our counselors address include: abuse issues (physical, sexual, emotional), anger, anxiety, attention deficit disorder, bullying, children of divorce, depression, drug & alcohol abuse, oppositional defiance, peer pressure, self-esteem, self-harm (cutting), stress and numerous other topics.
Even in challenging economic times, Outreach ensures that young people and their families have resources and services available to them. Our fees are reasonable, at most only $40/session (see Fees & Payments). In the case of financial hardship, those fees may be partially or wholly subsidized.
There are no waiting lists, clients are typically seen within one week from initial contact.
