Are you searching for a community counselor in Lodi, NJ? Savia Community Counseling provides adolescents and caregivers comprehensive and compassionate counseling. Resilience, strength-based, and compassion are the three pillars of our practice. 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, and IIC practitioner. We understand the importance of healthy outlets for individuals to utilize when they are struggling, and we are committed to providing the highest level of service.

Due to Dr. Sakima Gonzalez's 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. Our counselors have a wide range of areas of expertise, including trauma, adoption, LGBTQ, loss, substance abuse, immigration, complex family dynamics, depression, anxiety, and more.
