Hello Everyone! My name is Amber Keil and I am a part of The Wellness Center (Room K-10). The Wellness Center is a Seneca-operated space focused on supporting students, families, and staff with mental and emotional well-being. I provide short-term individual and group therapy to students who do not have Medi-Cal. I also provide social-emotional learning and trauma-informed care consultation support to school staff. Please feel free to email me if you have questions regarding mental health resources:
