Multicultural Community Counseling (MCC)

latino girlOutpatient Program

All children and youth need a nurturing, supportive, and secure surrounding in order to feel safe, to thrive, and mature successfully into adulthood.

The goal of the staff at the Multicultural Community Counseling program is to provide counseling to individuals in a meeting place of their choice, where the environment is safe, comfortable and convenient, and they can openly share their concerns.

Our counselors work with individuals who are experiencing issues such as behavioral challenges, adjustment struggles, symptoms of depression and/or anxiety, trauma, and school and/or family relational problems.

Hispanic Family

Because each child and family is unique, our therapists form an individualized connection with the youth and supporting family to work together to identify goals that will lead to a successful daily life.  Statistics show that  family/caregiver involvement contributes to the significant increase in the success of therapy.  A separate family support partner will be provided to work directly with the family member/caregiver(s). The Multicultural Community Counseling treatment team consists of the Therapist, Family Support Partner, Nurse and Psychiatrist.
