Counseling is a personal opportunity to receive support and experience growth during challenging times in life. Counseling can help one deal with many personal topics in life such as: 


  • Anger

  • Domestic violence

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Substance abuse

  • Marriage and relationship challenges

  • Parenting concerns 

  • School difficulties 

  • Career changes


​Working one on one in a confidential and culturally sensitive environment, our counseling sessions allow individuals to explore their feelings, beliefs, and behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change. 

Play Therapy

Play therapy is based on the communicative and learning processes of children. Our counselors use play therapy to help children express what is troubling them when they do not have the verbal language to express their thoughts and feelings.

Play therapy helps children:

  • become more responsible for behaviors and develop more successful strategies.

  • develop new and creative solutions to problems.

  • develop respect and acceptance of self and others.

  • learn to experience and express emotion.

  • cultivate empathy and respect for thoughts and feelings of others.

  • learn new social skills and relational skills with family.

  • develop self-efficacy and thus a better assuredness about their abilities.

Legal Services

Wafa House believes in a holistic, restorative approach to justice for our clients. They are often reluctant to seek legal assistance due to language barriers; fear of law enforcement due to negative experiences in their country or the US; lack of familiarity with the US legal system; varying cultural norms related to gender roles, the rights of women and children, and shame associated with specific types of victimization; and previous trauma. 

Our in-house legal team is comprised of a family law attorney,  and an Arabic-speaking legal assistant. Our legal assistant provides general guidance and legal referrals to partners outside of Wafa House who may be better suited to their case. For our qualifying clients, our attorney and legal assistant will assist with court proceedings related to: 

  • divorce

  • child custody

  • domestic violence
