Heartstrings Counseling relies on individual and corporate sponsors and partnerships to provide FREE sessions to individuals, families, first responders, disaster survivors, and many others in our local communities and beyond who cannot otherwise afford these services.

Heartstrings Counseling provides services to a wide range of clients including those who are in need of low cost or no cost counseling. We rely on supporter and business partnership donations and grants to provide counseling to those who cannot otherwise afford these services. In 2021, Heartstrings Counseling provided an average of 516 sessions per month, totaling 6,100+ counseling sessions for the year. Over 70% of those sessions (4,300+) were provided free of charge to clients through funding from sponsors and partnership grants.


Healing Express Our mobile crisis and disaster counseling program, Heartstrings Healing Express, was launched in March 2021. The Express is a newly-renovated RV designed to bring Heartstrings Counseling therapists to the site of crisis or disaster events anywhere in California. This allows us to transport our services and offer counseling support to those affected by events such as wildfires, mass disasters, and circumstances where immediate on-site counseling is needed. We also work with first responders and their families.
