The TEA Program is a time-limited assistance program to help needy families with children become more responsible for their own support and less dependent on public assistance. In addition to monthly cash assistance, employment-related services are provided to parents, including job-readiness activities, transportation assistance, childcare assistance, and other supportive services so that the parent can engage in work or education and training activities. The Division of County Operations is responsible for administering the program and determining the eligibility for cash assistance payments for the Transitional Employment Assistance (TEA) and Work Pays Programs.

Carson’s Village has collected this list of counselors to make it easier for you to find a grief and bereavement specialist. However, the information about the counselor’s skill and practice areas has been provided by the counselor themselves (or their practice group), therefore, we cannot guarantee the counselors on this list are right for you or your specific needs. We recommend that you schedule a consultation with two to three different counselors. Most will meet with you for a brief consultation free of charge. It is important that you feel comfortable with your counselor, so make sure that you find someone who is polite, accommodating, listens and understands your needs, and is conveniently located (or easy to meet/contact). Use consultations to ask about fees and insurance, if the counselor truly specializes in grief and bereavement (or whatever your needs are), and to assess your fit with them in general. As a rule of thumb, follow your gut and don’t select a counselor until you find someone with whom you feel comfortable and supported. Please note: This resource list is provided for information purposes only and is not an endorsement of the organizations or individuals listed or the services provided.
