ABOUT US

WHAT IS OUR MISSION?

The mission of Child & Teen Counseling is two-fold:

  1. Provide affordable mental and emotional health services to children, teens and families.
  2. Train up-and-coming mental health professionals how to effectively and empathically work with children, teens and families towards healthier relationships with themselves and their loved ones.

WHO DO WE SERVE?

Child & Teen Counseling seeks to provide therapeutic support to children, teenagers and their families in the west end of the San Fernando Valley.  This can range from a five-year-old who is struggling with her parents’ recent divorce, a fourteen-year-old needing stronger coping skills as he tries to overcome a bullying situation, a 21-year-old battling anxiety that interferes with her career goals and to a parent who desperately wants to strengthen his relationship with his kids.

Child & Teen Counseling is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization

Happy

Happy is what we all want our kids to be. In fact we want our kids to by Happy all the time. Of course, no one is. However, with proper emotional support, our kids can often be Happy. What makes a kid Happy?

TRAINING

In addition to providing therapy to families in need, Child & Teen Counseling is a training center for Marriage and Family Therapist Trainees who are graduate students in our community. We specialize in helping future Marriage and Family Therapists learn how to work with children, teens, and families in a way that encourages open communication and connection between parent and child.  These Trainees are supervised by seasoned Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists in order to ensure that treatment is of the highest standard.

Child & Teen Counseling partners with local colleges in order to accept volunteer Marriage and Family Therapist Trainees.  If you think your school might benefit from working with us, please feel free to reach out to Applications@ChildTeenCounseling.org

Marriage and Family Therapist Trainees may also apply by sending their resume and application (include link to application or web page with it) to Applications@ChildTeenCounseling.org

Angry

Angry didn’t start out that way. Angry started out as feeling hurt. There was some disappointment or distress that Angry suffered. Those vulnerable feelings felt too uncomfortable so instead, Angry got MAD!

I don't care

I Don’t Care is living a lie. I Don’t Care pretends that nothing matters because apathy seems more appealing than the crushing disappointment that will come from trying and failing… failing to do well in school, failing to have good friends, failing to feel accepted by parents, failing to achieve self-respect.
