Southwest Youth and Family Services provides a wide range of state-licensed counseling services for children, teens, young adults, and their families. We match youth and families with one of our qualified and dedicated counselors who can best meet their unique needs while paying attention to culture, language, gender, and other factors that may affect their counseling experience. We work with a wide range of clients in age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and more. We provide culturally sensitive counseling in English and Spanish, individual and group therapies, art and drama therapy and individualized care based on client needs.
Our Counseling Center’s services range from brief, highly focused counseling to longer-term services, depending on the need of the youth or family. Counseling can be provided at our offices, in the client’s home, schools, or other community settings. Our goal is to make counseling as accessible as possible.
