Incorporated as a nonprofit in 1979, Open Paths Counseling Center was formed as a compassionate response to the lack of affordable mental health services in Los Angeles. We believe that quality mental healthcare should not be reserved for the few and the privileged. We are proud to offer skillful, compassionate, culturally-sensitive counseling services in a safe and comfortable environment. Our fees are sliding scale based on family income, to assure affordability. Most services are offered in English and Spanish.
Open Paths Counseling Center’s mission is to meet the evolving mental health needs of the community through quality counseling for individuals and families at affordable fees; free therapy programs for at-risk children and youth in local schools; and a highly respected therapist training program.
