New M.S. in Counseling Program

To diagnose and treat the mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders affecting approximately 1 in 5 American children today, we started an M.S. in Counseling program! It is the first in the state of California to offer an LPCC (licensed professional clinical counseling) degree which specializes in children and adolescents.

This Fall, our first cohort of 25 students completed a variety of courses in areas such as Diagnosis and Treatment Planning as well as Therapy Interventions and Play Techniques. The program includes full and part-time options, evening courses, and fieldwork opportunities to meet the required practicum hours set by the Board of Behavioral Sciences. Applications are currently being accepted for Fall 2020. Last year many exceptional applicants applied - be sure to get your materials in before the March 1st deadline!

Our new M.S. in Counseling Program is a wonderful complement to our existing M.S. in Child Life program, which trains allied healthcare professionals to support children and their families facing challenging experiences, particularly traumatic medical situations.
