Client Leaves

His parents brought him to the Free Clinic of Simi Valley Family Counseling Program because he needed help. For over a year he worked in play therapy with one of our dedicated volunteer professionals. Today he came in with his father and brother to say goodbye for his final session. He walked into the room and gave his therapist a big hug. "Since you helped me so much, I want my spot to go to someone else who could use your help," he said. "You taught me a lot, and now I have the tools to deal with my anxiety." His therapist told him that she had learned from him, too.
This client is only eleven years old.
