A Little Help Can Make A Big Change

Counseling Service

Counseling Services are available in individual, group and family formats to address a number of issues including depression, anxiety, stress, domestic violence, relationships, bullying, grief, substance use, trauma and more.

Psychiatric Medication

Psychiatric Medication Management includes initial psychiatric evaluation in which the prescriber will discuss how medication may be a valuable part of a person’s mental health recovery. The need and frequency of ongoing medication management services will be continually assessed.



Our Integrated Health Program offers free bilingual (CLAS), psychiatric care for participants with mental illness, developmental disabilities, or co-occurring disorders. Our client-centered, recovery-orientated care model is culturally competent, and it is an effective treatment model that reduces stigma. Patients: have access to bilingual clinical staff members and providers who collaborate to create and implement an action plan for patients’ holistic wellness.
Our intensive outpatient services are beneficial to individuals who are seeking help in overcoming mental health disorders such as:
  1.  Depression
  2.  Anxiety
  3.  Bipolar disorder
  4. Psychological trauma & abuse
  5.  Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  6.  Substance use problems, including alcohol, illegal drugs, and the improper use of prescription or over-the-counter medications


Our groups allow participants to come together and discuss their mental health issues in a constructive and supportive environment. Group therapy topics focus on:
  1.  Coping skills
  2.  Emotional regulation
  3.  Healthy behaviors
  4. Medications
  5. Relationship issues


At GEC, we understand that some mental health conditions are best treated with a combination of therapy and medication. Participants in our intensive outpatient program have the option to meet with psychiatrists who can prescribe medication to treat symptoms related to their mental health condition. Ongoing medication monitoring is also available upon completion of the intensive outpatient program.


At GEC we provide child and adolescent outpatient programs that meet the needs of your loved ones to work on improving their mental health issues.
We provide comprehensive behavioral healthcare treatment for children ages 5 through 12 and adolescents ages 13 through 17 in separate programs. Both adolescent and child outpatient programs aim to strengthen emotional and social functioning while providing the tools to return to healthy daily activities.
