About CMFC

The Center for Marriage and Family Counseling (CMFC) is a private, non-profit organization offering affordable professional counseling services to residents of the Central Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. For CMFC, affordable means allowing many forms of payment including insurance options, self-pay, Medicaid and a generous sliding fee scales based on income.
