Oak Creek Responds to Need for Affordable Counseling
PLEASANT HILL, California (August 2, 2012) – Oak Creek Counseling Center has recently hired more therapists at their three community counseling clinics in Pleasant Hill, Berkeley, and San Francisco.
“Most folks just need a little help in times of trouble,” said Stephen Polin, Clinical Director of OCCC. “Our therapists provide counseling on a sliding scale and they work with clients to set a fee that meets their financial needs. With the addition of more therapists at all of our clinics, we are able to help fill the gaps left by reduced funding to state mental health services.”
“Oak Creek’s reputation for providing high-quality counseling and their deep roots in the community initially attracted me to the center,” said LeAnne Rozner, newly hired Marriage and Family Therapy Intern (www.LeAnneRozner.com)
