About Us


The Men's Center for Family Counseling is a privately-owned practice located in Gainesville, Va. Our focus is to provide an environment that is tailored to the specific needs of the male client and the people in their lives. Taking a solution focused approach, therapists work with clients to identify underlying problems, improve self-awareness and to develop specific skills that address the client's needs. Though our focus is on the male client we do meet with female clients who come to us looking for this type of approach to therapy.

Our mission is to support, educate and empower people.
