TMCC offers a range of services for families, adolescents, and children that include consultations and evaluations, individual and family therapy, and parenting classes. Held at our offices on Wilshire Boulevard and in schools, services are provided in a confidential setting. Families can address a range of issues, including crisis situations, in group or individual therapy modalities.
An innovative, preventive intervention, Mindful Parenting promotes more secure attachments through enhancing respectful, reflective parenting practices, and increasing positive interactions between parent and child. Groups meet for 1.5 hours each week in a developmentally appropriate play environment, where parents can observe, reflect on, and respond to the ordinary flow of attachment and exploratory behaviors in their children.

The Center’s interns work in schools to provide one-on-one support to students who have emotional, social, or adjustment difficulties which affect their classroom performance. These services include alcohol and drug prevention programs, individual and group counseling, staff workshops, anger management groups, and crisis counseling. Currently, the Center provides services to Beverly Hills Unified School District (BHUSD) and Culver Park High School, and new partnerships with schools are being explored.
Counseling Program at Beverly Hills High School is for mainstream high school students who receive counseling for emotional, social, or adjustment difficulties. Center interns provide free, on-site assessment and one-on-one support for the students. Results show that students perform better academically and adjust more easily to the pressures of the high school environment with this type of counseling. The school district allots time from the student’s schedule to attend these sessions. TMCC also offers opportunities for dialogue between parents and high school students on contemporary topics of interest.
Student Peer Counseling Program at Beverly Hills High School was developed in response to research showing that teenagers are more likely to seek help from their peers than from adults. Student Peer Counseling is a highly effective method to reach students who are not easily identified by school counselors or teachers, because they do not act out in the classroom or earn poor grades. This program is free for participants. Interested in volunteering?
Moreno High School requires all students in the continuing education school to receive weekly counseling sessions. Center interns provide free individual counseling, weekly support groups, crisis intervention, drug and alcohol sobriety information and workshops as needed. The sessions offer a safe place to discuss family issues and peer pressure concerns.
Safe Rides are available on Friday and Saturday nights from 10:00 pm to 2:00 am for teens living in Beverly Hills. High school students can call for a free ride home when they are under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. When the teenager calls the Safe Ride number, the TMCC counselor assigned to the 24-hour HELP-LINE arranges for that teen to be picked up by the Beverly Hills Cab Company and taken home. Services are confidential.
Community Circle is widely used in over thirty elementary school classrooms in the Beverly Hills and Los Angeles Unified School Districts. The Program is offered weekly for each classroom in the program.

Once key communication skills are learned and understood, any topic of interest can be discussed. Interested in volunteering?
