To join the Alpha Behavioral Counseling Center team, each licensed counselor must have the experience, talent, and compassion to adequately serve the center's clients and aid in the healing process. That's why each of the counselors is highly trained, professional, and committed to confidentiality. Whether you request a specific counselor for your needs based on a recommendation or would like to be placed with someone that meets specific criteria, there is a team member that can get you back on track.

Marriage and Family counseling

Counselors at ABCC are experienced in the area of Marriage and Family counseling. If you need assistance with a specific event such as a loss or infidelity, or you need help developing methods to create a positive, stable environment in the home, a certified AMFT can help you build a plan to help you cope in the short term and maintain balance long term with techniques you can continue to use.

Child Counseling

Marriage and family counselors are also well-versed in the area of parent-child counseling. If your child needs to heal due to trauma, emotional dysregulation, or family dynamic concerns, a licensed counselor can help get to the root of the problem. The counselors at ABCC have built stable relationships with other child-related professionals in the Fresno area, including schools, child protective services, and the court system.

During the initial evaluation, the team determines which type of counseling can help you achieve your goals and places you with a counselor who can work alongside you and help you stay on track.
