Office-Based Mental Health Counseling

FSA provides a wide array of mental health counseling services that result in positive, long-term improvements for overall quality of life, decreasing the likelihood of high-risk behaviors, and for students, improving academic success. Counseling services in our Youth and Family Behavioral Health Clinic are provided by licensed therapists and pre-licensed clinicians supervised by experienced licensed therapists.

Individual, couples or family counseling is available for children as young as 5 through adults age 59 (ages 5-21 in Santa Maria). Our clinicians work with clients to address the goals clients (and their parents/guardians) have for themselves utilizing a variety of well-established clinical interventions.

Managed Care Mental Health/Brief Therapy is designed to serve children and adults who are Medi-Cal beneficiaries who meet medical necessity criteria and their families. The Program provides clients and their families with brief therapy which is time-limited and focused on addressing a specific problem, but is not intended to be long-term treatment.

Insurance-billed Psychotherapy Services. A group of licensed FSA staff and contracted providers provide psychotherapy services with an array of areas of expertise. We are contracting with a growing number of insurance companies so that we can bill the insurance of our clients for these psychotherapy services, making the client responsible only for applicable co-insurance and deductibles. Currently we have providers in Santa Barbara and Lompoc contracted with Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Magellan, and the Holman Group (CenCal/Medi-Cal).

Sliding Fee Scale. We works with all clients to determine a fee they can afford.
