Students enrolled at Paloma Creek High School and ACE Academy have access to an on-site licensed therapist who meets with to address needs in the areas of addiction, anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns. The licensed counseling staff is available for drop-in and appointments that are self and staff-referred. Staff is trained in and draws on the models of Relapse Prevention, Harm Reduction, Positive Psychology, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy for Depression, and several other models. Services are offered through individual, group, and family sessions. In addition to counseling services students can receive assistance related to housing/homelessness, clothing, healthcare needs. Referrals can be made to the Link Family Resource Center, or other local agencies as needed. It is the goal of the Wellness Center to support our students and families so that they can remain healthy, productive, and contributing members of our community. It is difficult for students to attend school and focus when their basic needs are not being met. It is our goal to work with each individual student to assist and guide them so they can graduate from high school and continue to develop their skills and talents.
