Ensuring access to support, hope, and healing.

BACR provides on-site professional counseling services in elementary, middle, and high schools in Alameda County, West Contra Costa County, and Marin County schools.

Our counselors handle issues such as family crises, behavior problems, peer relationships, depression, academic problems, alcohol and drug use, and fears about community violence.

Mental health services include counseling, case management, trauma response, parent education, teacher consultation, and other assistance.

We provide individual, group, and family mental health services, as well as consultation with school personnel and other stakeholders and collaborators.

Program models and practices include different treatment approaches, such as talk, play, art, and cognitive behavioral therapies. We employ, among other models, Stages of Change, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution-Based and Brief Therapy and Restorative Justice.

Several schools in the East Bay integrate both Medi-Cal funded and non-Medi-Cal services.

I’ve worked with people who are a testament to the therapeutic process: They discover what they need in order to facilitate change and growth for themselves, utilizing me and our relationship to help them in that process.
