SoCal Adolescent Wellness was founded by a mother of two, who witnessed many behavioral health challenges in her family and with her own kids. From these experiences, she was inspired to help create a safe place for both adolescents and their families. This place would function in such a way to not disrupt the daily life of the adolescents and instead enhance it and give them the skills they need to thrive. SoCal was designed with the goal of healing the entire family.
At SoCal Adolescent Wellness, we empower teens to live full and happy lives by treating the underlying issues of mental health.

“We were referred to SoCal Adolescent Wellness Center by our daughter’s individual therapist. She needed a higher level of care and the intensive outpatient program they have for adolescents (after school 3 days a week for 3/hours/day) was very good and just what we needed. The program includes family sessions as well, which were some of the most helpful and valuable counseling sessions we have ever had as a divorced family. Our daughter’s attitude improved, our communication is better and she just seems happier. There are not a lot of programs like this, so I am so happy we were referred to it. It is a small group and the kids get a lot of personalized attention and involvement. The therapists specialize in and really “get” adolescents and their particular needs and developmental/behavioral issues. Highly recommended.”
