PFCS Welcomes 15 New Graduate Trainees

Palomar Family Counseling Service is proud of our commitment to training the next generation of therapists. We are so pleased to welcome 15 new graduate trainees from 8 different universities who will be working in our offices as well as in the public schools this year.  These graduate students are completing a practicum requirement necessary for Marriage and Family Therapy, Master of Social Work, or Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor degrees.

 

Beyond the Front Gate: Working with Military Families

To many on the outside, entering a military base can be a stressful, worrisome and an uncomfortable situation. Getting through the gate involves driving by and letting an armed military member check your ID, sometimes making you go to the pass house to get sponsored on. It’s not uncommon to drive by tanks, or to see helicopters flying overhead, and to those who live and work on base, it’s the norm.

HUGE Clothing Drive by San Diego Jewish Academy benefits PFCS Clients

PFCS was honored to be the recipient of a generous clothing and toy drive by San Diego Jewish Academy.  SDJA conducted the drive in honor of Agam Levy, a dedicated community-minded teenager whose life was cut tragically short.  Staff and students delivered the goods in a giant U-Haul and worked with PFCS to unload and organize them, and then PFCS staff delivered the items to youth and families in need.  It was a wonderful event that benefited hundreds of clients.

Thank you San Diego Jewish Academy, and also to Mad Engine for their generous donation of brand new children’s clothing!
