Child Guidance Center transforms lives for Orange County children, teens and their families with innovative behavioral and mental health services, empowering those we assist to reach their potential. At our six convenient locations throughout the county, we help more than 1,000 children and families every week. We believe that every child and family should receive the assistance they need. Our clinicians and staff members have expertise in many areas, including attention deficit disorder, the autism spectrum, anger management, family struggles and more. We also have special programs to address the needs of veteran and military families.

For us, children’s mental health is as important as their physical well-being. We are here to help children and parents in our communities achieve healthier, better balanced lives.
