Behavioral Health

Care for your behavioral health

At Esperanza, we're here to provide the behavioral health care you need throughout all of life’s challenges.  We deliver care in your language, and our sliding scale fee helps to keep our services affordable, including:


  • Individual therapy: Our clinicians instill hope and create a safe space for you to focus on your goals and manage your symptoms.
  • Social-Emotional groups: In-person and telehealth groups are offered for a variety of ages and topics at Esperanza.
  • Psychiatry Services: Our psychiatrists can provide medication support if you've had at least one behavioral health visit with us.  Learn more here.
  • Same-Day behavioral health: Starting with a brief assessment, our same-day support gives you education and strategies to manage your symptoms and keep you safe*. Our patients are invited to actively participate in decisions about their care. Available via telehealth or in-person visit.
  • Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT): We work together on your substance use recovery with strategies that promote safety and help reduce usage.  Learn more here.

*Psychoeducation and supportive counseling are crucial; many times, patients only present for one visit. Providing patients with tools/skills during this initial visit that may help them alleviate stress or manage reported symptoms is important.
