Clinical (Master's level with BBS registration)


Sonoma Compass provides short-term residential treatment for youth who are in the midst of an emerging and/or acute crisis. We view short-term residential treatment as an "intervention" that is integrated with a wide array of family and community-based services.  As an alternative to inpatient hospitalization, treatment begins with stabilization through consistent support in a therapeutic home. Treatment is integrated and flexible to support successful step downs to a Wraparound Program in order for youth to achieve permanency in a nurturing family home
