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 focuses on addressing a specific problem.

Insurance-billed Psychotherapy Services. A group of licensed FSA staff provide psychotherapy services with an array of areas of expertise. We are contracting with 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 contracted with Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Magellan, and the Holman Group (CenCal/Medi-Cal).

Sliding Fee Scale. No one will be denied access to services due to inability to pay, and a discounted/sliding fee schedule is available based on family size and income (adjusted down for rent/mortgage).
