The Mental Health Counseling Program consists of experienced, licensed clinicians, fluent in English and Spanish, who supervise and mentor master and post-master level interns. Interns work directly with clients who have various mental health diagnoses, ages, family constellations and cultural backgrounds.

The commitment of the Mental Health/Clinical Counseling Programs offer accessible, professional, high-quality, compassionate care to the communities we serve within the Central Coast.

Our clinical services take into account the whole person, integrating the biological, psychosocial, emotional and spiritual needs of those we serve. We welcome clients from across the spectrum of spiritual beliefs.

Clients are encouraged to invest on their wellbeing, so a sliding fee scale is offered to accommodate those in need.

WE PROVIDE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES ON A LIMITED BASIS AND ARE NOT TAKING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME. WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
