Our mission at SBCA is to provide an excellent education in a safe and caring environment that helps students discover the plans God has for their lives. Because we know that the emotional and spiritual health of our students is a significant contributing factor to being able to realize this mission, we offer faith-based counseling services at no cost to SBCA students.
We would like to encourage you to take advantage of these beneficial services. Counseling services can help with everyday challenges that effect everyone such as critical thinking, becoming self-aware, life coping skills, processing your emotions, anger management and so much more. The American Academy of Psychiatry states that 1 in 5 children have a diagnosable emotional or behavioral disorder and the U.S. Department of Education believes that schools can play a crucial role in early diagnosis and treatment.
Marriage and family therapist, Amber Flores, is on campus two days per week to offer these services. Ms. Flores holds a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from Capella University and a bachelor’s in psychology from the University of Phoenix. She is currently working on her PsyD in Clinical Psychology with Capella University.
She has experience counseling all age levels and also has previous teaching experience with a teaching certificate and background teaching fifth and sixth grade science. Her treatment background includes experience working with a variety of diagnoses such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and PTSD.
Parents must complete a counseling authorization form for themselves and for their child in order to quality for services. Forms are available at our front office.
Ms. Flores is available to answer any questions you may have via phone at (850) 972-9015 or email at email@example.com.
