Healthy Choices School Site Counseling

Intern Counselors
The City of Fremont Youth and Family Services provides individual and group counseling at a number of school sites. The counseling is provided by intern counselors who are in field placements as part of their masters or doctoral programs or are post-masters and are working on their hours toward a professional license. All interns are supervised by Youth and Family Services licensed Marriage Family Therapist, licensed Clinical Social Workers, and licensed Psychologist.
Two children
Intern counselors spend two days a week at the school and coordinate with school personnel to identify students most in need of counseling. Students may also self-refer or be referred by their parents.

For more information, on school site services, call the school directly or call Youth and Family Services at 510-574-2100.
