Sara Benitez Counseling
Kids and I have had an amazing experience. Kids, ask to see Ms. Sara when they are having a difficult time. Always a plus, when kids want to see a secialist.

I totally disagree with the other poster. I have a son who goes there and he is NOT special needs. I have been through public school with my other two, so this is my first experience with a charter. Anyhow he is really thriving there. He loves it. He is learning a lot. I also love how integrated the school is. My son sees no difference (rightfully so) between having friends with special needs and those who are not.

This school is not for typical children (those that do not have special needs). My child attended this school for many years. The ratios of typical to special needs children are largely different between the classes in the same year. I would understand if the ratios became a bit off over the year due to children leaving and joining but that isn't the case. The ratios do not even start out close to the same. The care for babies and young toddlers is very good. As the children mature, it becomes clear that the school does not know how to support the different ability levels of the children. They do excellent work for special needs children. I have seen some amazing things! I feel that they do not know how to establish and support the inclusive environment that they advertise.
Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
