Setting

Open Possibilities is an outpatient counseling center located in the city of Costa Mesa, California. In total, the center employs about 40 MFT Trainees from various graduate programs throughout California. Open Possibilities is a non-profit organization that operates to assist low income, struggling individuals and families at the clinic, while also maintaining contracts with multiple school districts and homeless shelters to provide counseling services at a low cost. Various elementary, middle, and high schools are contracted with Open Possibilities in Santa Ana, Ocean View (Huntington Beach), and Little Lake (Norwalk) unified school districts.

A homeless shelter, called WISE Place for Women is also contracted with Open Possibilities to provide counseling services at a low cost. MFT Trainees may also see individual adult or child, couples, or family clients at the clinic on a sliding scale fee. The intake process involves a client calling the clinic to ask for services, which they will then be matched to an MFT Trainee based on availability of schedule, and then the MFT Trainee will give the client a call to schedule an intake session. Lastly, Open Possibilities also offers groups such as Teen Anger Management, Teen Substance Abuse, Adult Anger Management, and Parenting classes. Clients’ who attend these various groups may either be court mandated or voluntary. The intake process will be similar to individual counseling, but will be based on clients’ preference of which group (day/time) to join.
