Youth Excel & Advancement is an in-school counseling service that provides support in the public school setting

to focus on the mental health and behavioral intervention needs of school-age children.    Our ability to effectively teach children coping skills is facilitated by engaging each child's family, supporting the teachers and administrative staff, and bringing other institutions from the community to the table of progress.  These measures ensure a comprehensive approach to the individual and social challenges that prevent many children from healthy mental and emotional development.  We are a team of dedicated mental health professionals with a genuine desire to affect positive change in the communitites we serve.
