JOIN ME IN THIS JOURNEY...
“Fear. Obstacles. Uncertainty. Pride. Confidence. Hope. These are the roller coaster of emotions I’ve been experiencing as I train for the Sean O’Brien 50K Trail Run on February 6, 2016. Why did I say yes to a 31-mile mountain run with an elevation climb of 6,500 feet?”
Read the journey of our Executive Director Patricia Costales, LCSW below and why she decided to take on this challenge.

SAN PEDRO CLINIC’S OPEN HOUSE
Thank you to everyone who attended our San Pedro Clinic’s Open House on Wednesday, June 17. We are so happy to be in this new space, and our San Pedro staff and clients are especially thrilled to call this new location home.
We’d like to give a special shout out to Timothy, a former 19-year-old client, who chose to share his moving story during the open house. And special thanks to the Children’s Benefit League who made a generous contribution to help fund our San Pedro Clinic’s play therapy room (pictured above). Their continuous support of The Guidance Center is making a world of difference in our clients’ lives.
