Counseling services are now available to members of the 911th Airlift Wing and their families. This service is being provided through the Military and Family Life Counseling Program.

MFLC provides non-medical counseling services to service members and their families at no cost both on and off installations. With the exception of child abuse, domestic abuse and duty to warn situations, services are private and confidential. Services provided include non-medical counseling to overcome common military lifestyle complications such as deployment stress, coping skills, homesickness, relocation adjustment, reintegration, separation, building resiliency, sadness, grief and loss, as well as counseling on general life skills such as anger management, communication, relationship issues, conflict resolution, parenting and decision-making skills.

Coming to the 911th AW with over 25 years of private counseling experience, Paul Tripoli is the wing’s point of contact for counseling services through MFLC. He is licensed as a clinical social worker, professional counselor and is certified in alcohol and drug counseling. He has worked for healthcare systems including MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital of Washington, D.C., Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, Md., and Allegheny General Hospital of Pittsburgh, Pa.
