Building Healthy Families & Communities


The Trumbull Counseling Center was first established in 1971. In 2013 the Trumbull Town Council voted to rename the counseling center to The Mary J. Sherlach Counseling Center, in honor of the Trumbull resident for her heroic sacrifice and service to the children of Sandy Hook Elementary School. Mary was a school psychologist who dedicated her life to those who needed her the most. She was a consummate professional and role model. The staff strives to embody her example as they work to help those who need assistance in their daily lives. It is the hope of the staff to work to honor Mary’s memory in the work they do.

The counseling center is a department of the Town of Trumbull and is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in Trumbull by providing counseling for residents and their families. All Trumbull residents and children attending Trumbull schools are eligible for services. All counseling services are confidential and fees are based on a sliding-scale according to family income and ability to pay.

Typical counseling goals include family interventions to address childhood attention deficit and behavior issues, parent-child conflicts, adolescent concerns, juvenile court referrals, domestic violence, divorce issues, and individual or family psychotherapy.

When working with children, staff counselors strive to develop a team approach to treatment, coordinating the services of parents, teachers, guidance counselors, and doctors, as needed. Confidentiality is strictly enforced according to the wishes of clients or parents. The team approach is by the client’s permission only, and not required. Services can also be coordinated with outpatient hospital aftercare.

Counseling staff is available to community groups as guest speakers and for crisis counseling. Community service information and referral advice is available by phone.

Counseling services can be arranged simply by calling the Counseling Center for an appointment.

Modest fees are based on each family’s ability to pay and there is no charge for the first appointment.
