Fresno Family Counseling Center

Hard to believe I left this resource off my list. In a post to my blog (link to the post is below) http://counselorssoapbox.com/2012/01/09/10-ways-to-get-emotional-help-without-money/

I had written about sources of low-cost counseling services. One source is centers which are affiliated with schools, especially universities with counseling training programs. We have just such a resource here in Fresno. Many therapists in private practice will see clients on a sliding fee scale but they can only see so many partial fee clients and they can only go so low.

Fresno Family Counseling Center is an excellent program and trains students to become Marriage and Family Therapist or professional counselors.  All the trainees are supervised by professors from the Fresno State counseling program.

The embarrassing part of this is that I like so many other licensed people in this community saw clients at Fresno Family Counseling Center when I was in my Trainee days.
