Sticks & Stones® is a school based counseling program for children who have been impacted by trauma and are displaying behaviors that affect their school and/or home environments. We offer school placements in Salinas and South Monterey County, working with students of all grade levels.

The Sticks & Stones® program hires counselors with a background in psychology, social work, and counseling. We offer internships for master’s level students and post master’s students who are registered with the BBS and collecting hours towards licensure. We pay a competitive rate for those that are gaining hours towards their professional license. We also hire Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors. Clinical Supervision and Trainings are provided throughout the school year.

We offer clinical supervision to our Trainees, Interns and Associates. Our Clinical Supervisors are experienced and well trained in working with children that have experienced trauma. We offer as much Clinical Supervision that each Therapist in Training needs to count their hours toward licensure. We do not charge our Interns, Trainees and Associates for this service.

At the beginning of each school year, prior to each placement, we offer a 4-day in-service orientation retreat to our counseling & coaching staff. They learn the “nuts and bolts” of their program, HR policies and procedures, and training on topics relevant to the work we are doing in the schools. We also offer trainings on relevant topics throughout the school year. Some examples of past trainings are bullying prevention, art therapy, attachment, cultural competency, grief & loss, homelessness, LGBT+ competency, and domestic violence. These trainings are free to all Harmony At Home staff.
