About Us

OUR HISTORY

The San Fernando Valley Counseling Center was established in 1971. The Center is a self supporting, nonprofit agency, which provides low-fee, psychological counseling to the community, on a sliding scale basis. We also provide outreach services to the community, as well as referral sources. Licensed professionals from the mental health field donate their time to train, supervise, and provide continuing education to our volunteer counselors.

We are currently serving over 300 clients. Our fees are very affordable. We provide long and short term counseling for individuals, couples and families.

We also provide 16 weeks of training and supervision for Masters’ level students, interns and volunteers from the community. When counselors have the appropriate training they will see clients at the Center on an ongoing basis.

MISSION STATEMENT

We believe in the benefits of counseling to a person’s growth & development. Through the dedicated commitment of well-trained, supervised volunteer counselors, we provide access to quality, affordable mental health counseling for individuals, couples and families who may be uninsured or have financial limitations.
