At The Center for Individual and Family Counseling (CIFC), experienced professional clinicians provide carefully individualized treatment for a wide variety of mental health and chemical dependency issues. Our psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and counselors, most with 20 or more years of experience, provide services to children, adolescents, seniors, couples and families.

Our suite in the Executive Tower's building at the heart of the Metairie Business District is centrally located and easily accessible to surrounding parishes. There is ample free parking, handicapped accessible, and other amenities one would expect in a well-managed, hi-rise business building, offering spectacular views of Lake Pontchatrain. The CIFC suite is comfortably furnished with offices expressing the individual taste and character of our clinicians.

Our telephones are answered from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. by our professional staff who can offer personal assistance regarding providers, services, insurance, appointments and financial matters. Our answering service is available at all times. CIFC accepts most insurance plans but we regret that we have no Medicaid providers.
