SAFE knows that at times, life gets tough.

…And we’re here to help you through life’s journey.

SAFE has a number of confidential free support programs to support families who either live or go to school in Coronado. These support services are provided by supervised counseling interns with Master’s Degrees in Marriage and Family Therapy and are provided year-round, from Monday-Saturday, 8 am – 8pm, pending counselor availability.

SAFE Counselors typically see teens, pre-teens, and elementary aged students as young as the third grade. Counselors also typically see parents, legal guardians, or even whole families at a time.

SAFE Counselors have a wide-range of skills and training in modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, emotionally-focused therapy, narrative therapy, and family systems therapy.

Specific support programs include:

Brief Parent/Family Resource and Consultations

Mentored Community Service

Mentored Community Service time follows principles of Milieu Therapy in which everyday interactions, events, and projects are tailored to build confidence and enhance social skills. In addition to skill building and enhancing youth’s self-esteem, mentored community service hours satisfy many school or court requirements and provide opportunities to build youth’s resumes in preparation for college and the workforce.
