The Hope Center: Counseling & Medication Management

The Hope Center in West Monroe is the new Counseling and Medication Management Clinic of The Center for Children & Families. Our goal is to increase access to mental health services for children in Northeast Louisiana. The Hope Center provides services for children who have experienced trauma and their families who are navigating life’s difficult situations, as well as children with emotional and behavioral health needs.


Counseling Services are provided by licensed and experienced mental health professionals employed by The Center for Children and Families. At The Hope Center, therapy sessions are family-oriented and research-based to ensure the highest quality of care.

We accept BlueCross BlueShield insurance and self-pay options for our in-clinic services which offer compassionate and innovative mental health treatments for various behavioral and/or mental health issues. Sessions are family-oriented and research-based to ensure the highest quality of care.
