School Counseling Services

School Based Program

One Life Counseling Center partners with school districts to place therapists in schools to provide mental health services. The therapists are familiar with each student’s strengths and empower them to use their unique abilities to utilize a dynamic toolbox of coping skills throughout the day. Below you will find our current school based therapists, who each bring a unique skillset to their work and truly care about the students and communities they serve. 

For more information about our school based program or to inquire about services in your district, please reach out to our School Based Director, Hana Whizin, at hana_w@onelifecounselingservices.com.

What is school based counseling?

At One Life, we partner closely with schools to provide mental health services. Our therapists integrate into the schools they work in to make these services a natural part of the educational process. They provide everything from individual and group counseling, classroom social emotional learning lessons, parent support and psychoeducation, crisis support and more.

Newcomer Program

One of the groups that many of our therapists provide are called ‘newcomer groups’. At Hoover School, they now call these ‘Resiliency Groups for International Students’. These groups aim to support students who have recently moved to the United States and provide a supportive space for these students to connect, share experiences, and develop coping skills to navigate the challenges of adjusting to a new culture and environment. They also provide psychoeducation, connection to safety net services, and social support to foster resilience and well-being.

After School and Summer Support

In addition to providing mental health services during school hours, we also partner with the Redwood City School District to place therapists in their after school programs across school sites. These therapists provide similar services as those during the school day in order to provide continuing mental health care and support to students. During summer One Life partners with different Parks and Recreation programs to provide mental health services during their summer programming.
