Community Counseling in Beaufort County

Info for Parents: Community Counseling Resources in the Beaufort Area 

School counselors are highly qualified with a Master of Education degree and teaching certificate, meaning they will help your child on issues which may affect school performance. However, sometimes outside community counseling is recommended, especially if long-term counseling is requested.


The WBMS School Counseling Office does not recommend one resource over another. We encourage you to consult your insurance provider to learn about your specific mental health coverage. Many of these resources offer sliding scale fees for those without insurance.

Disclaimer: The following agencies are only meant to assist you as points of reference.  Whale Branch Middle School does not recommend any one particular facility.  We can provide referrals, if necessary.
