How do I sign up for or make an appointment for family counseling or other services at Horizons Family Counseling?
You will need to call Horizons at: 925-371-4747 to make an appointment. The counselor-of-the-day will do an intake which takes about 10-20 minutes. We will need information such as names, phone numbers, addresses, and the reason that your family is seeking help. The counselor will also do an evaluation of level of risk. An appointment will be scheduled as soon as schedules allow.
What other services does Horizons offer?
In addition to family counseling, which we offer in English and in Spanish, we have a counselor at Del Valle High School. Twice a year, we offer the Parent Project®, a 12-week parenting series for parents with a strong-willed child. The program in English begins in October of each year; in Spanish, it begins in March of each year. We offer a group called Crossroads to Change for at-risk middle school girls at one of our middle schools and a two-week art program called Path to Picasso. Budding artists (ages 13-17) may apply for this summer program, beginning in March of each year. We have a training program for Master's level Trainees or MFT or MSW Interns, where we place counselors in each of the middle schools. Call 925-371-4747 for more information.
