Savia Community Counseling Services (SCCS)
Savia Community Counseling Services (SCCS) was born with the purpose of making a positive impact in the lives of the people we serve by providing in-community psychotherapeutic and supportive services within a culturally informed approach. Resilience, Strength-Based, and Compassion are the three pillars of our practice. At Savia Community Counseling, you will find a team of professionals with a high sense of responsibility, social involvement and dedication to their work. Our motivation is to provide high quality services by adhering to the highest standards of ethics and quality control.
SCCS was founded by Dr. Sakima Gonzalez, who had been involved with the New Jersey Children's System of Care for over a decade in multiple roles, such as Care Manager Supervisor, IIC/BA Supervisor, as well as IIC practitioner. Due to her vast knowledge of in-community services, she decided to create an agency that nurtures, prepares and supports practitioners interested in community-based work.
Today, SCCS continues to have a positive impact in the community with its team of in-community providers, clinical supervisors, and administrative staff.
