Other Counseling Resources:

Do you want to look for your own mental health professional? Ms. Joselynn Aguilar recommends these 3 resources.

  1., to find a therapist in your local area with current availability.
  2. for affordable mental health services
  3. Call your insurance (Kaiser, IEP, BlueShield, etc) and your insurance provider will connect you with a referral list of therapists who accept your insurance and the type of service you need (family counseling, marital counseling, psychological assessment, individual counseling, psychiatric services, and more).
