The counseling program at the Village Health Foundation provides
services to the general and underserved populations of Los Angeles. The
underserved populations will include ethnic/racial minorities, LGBTQ
individuals, persons diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, and the economically,
socially oppressed and marginalized groups.
One of the unique qualities of these counseling services is it’s integrative
holistic approach to counseling these individuals, who are often
apprehensive regarding counseling services due to the stigma associated
with their life styles. The lack of sensitivities and understanding of their
personal and cultural perceptions of psychological interventions by service
providers has contributed to the therapist and client not being able to
forge a therapeutic alliance.
The services are provided by graduate students in a clinical training
program supervised by licensed therapist Martha Watson/LCSW.
All intervention are provided under the supervision of licensed
mental health professionals and are in collaboration with
Village Health Clinic Clinicians.
The Village Health Foundation’s distinctive approach will contribute to
the development of future culturally sensitive mental health professionals
by providing opportunities for these individuals to be supervised and
mentored while addressing the concerns of the underserved populations.
