The Lighthouse of SWFL offers services addressing psychological and social issues related to vision loss to clients and family members. The agency provides weekly group and family counseling with individual counseling available by appointment.
These counseling sessions focus on the adjustments to blindness from the perspective of the individual experiencing the loss. Family members are allowed to share their thoughts and concerns with others in similar situations. (Strict confidentiality is maintained.)
Individual and Family counseling provides clients and family members an opportunity to explore their concerns. It also addresses advocacy, self-advocacy, and problem-solving skills development. Sessions are offered on an on-going basis. During assessments, when appropriate, referrals to outside partner agencies are given.
