Counseling at SAY saves your tax dollars.

Jocelyn, a Marriage and Family Therapist, has been at SAY for five years. She has worked as a counselor in local schools, at the Coffee House Teen Shelter and has led groups for teens who are on probation. Currently, Jocelyn leads SAY’s anger management and diversion groups. She loves to see the progress her clients achieve. “I feel so privileged to do this work and love seeing young people make healthy changes in their lives.”

Diversion programs for youth who have been arrested are particularly important to our local community. It costs about $145,000 a year just to house a young person at Juvenile Hall. For about $1,600, our counselors are able to reunite that same young person with their family
