School Based Services

StarVista’s School Based Counseling Services has been providing high quality mental health services to San Mateo County students for over 10 years. The goal of this program is to support students in improving aspects of their lives that may lead to enhanced school performance and increased engagement in learning.

In order to accomplish this goal, we send qualified mental health clinicians to each school site and provide a myriad of services including assessment, crisis intervention, individual and group therapy, family therapy, psycho-education, classroom presentations, as well as extensive consultation and training with teachers, parents, administration, and other school support staff. We adapt our services to fit the unique needs of each school and San Mateo County’s diverse student population.

Currently, we provide mental health services in over 20 elementary, middle, and high schools in the following districts:

Redwood City School District
Belmont-Redwood Shores School District
Sequoia Union High School District
Jefferson Union High School District

If you have any questions or would like to inquire about services available within your local school district, please contact the Program Manager, Lindsay Stark.
