About Us

VBS Counseling Center offers private, confidential mental health counseling for individuals, couples and families. Clients are seen by appointment only by Telehealth or in person counseling in our discreet offices, located on the lower level of the Valley Beth Shalom synagogue building in Encino, California.


Sessions are 50 minutes and Groups run 90 minutes. Services are available in English, Spanish and Farsi. Our approach is a compassionate and empowering mix of current counseling philosophies.


Counseling fees are based on each clients' ability to pay. No one is turned away for lack of funds. We create a mutual agreement that takes into consideration your unique situation and do our best to get you the help you need at rates you can comfortably afford, for as long as you require counseling. We do not accept insurance. Payments may be tax deductible, depending on your financial circumstances.
