Established in 2008, the Community Counseling Program offers affordable counseling and psychotherapy during  afternoon and evening hours for youth and families in and around the greater Silicon Valley community. Individual, family, and group counseling are provided through this program.

The Community Counseling Program provides the highest standard of care in the provision of psychological services, with therapists who are culturally and linguistically reflective of our diverse community.  Services are currently offered in English and Spanish.

The Community Counseling Program proactively responds to the social and emotional needs of youth in the community, providing a safe and non-judgmental place for support and guidance.  Therapists encourage both clients’ academic and social success through confidence building and empowerment.
