Relationship Solutions Clinic

The Relationship Solutions Clinic is currently accepting new clients who are seeking couple and family counseling. Do you know someone struggling to connect with a partner? Or are you or a loved one tired of family conversations always ending in arguments. The Relationship Solutions Clinic is an innovative counseling environment coordinated by the Couple & Family Therapy Program in the Kent School. We work with couples and families to decrease conflict, improve communication, and enhance the well-being of all family members.

Services are provided at low cost by graduate-level students working under the direct supervision of a licensed marriage and family therapist and trained supervisor. Therapists provide an inviting, non-judgmental atmosphere to help clients create the relationships they want to have.

Sessions start at a low-cost flat free of $20, and sliding scale options are also available. All sessions include telehealth at this time, and we plan to offer in-person sessions this fall. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment, please contact the Clinical Director, Tiffany Farmer, at (502) 547-9612 or
