Amber Keil

Hello Everyone! My name is Amber Keil ("Kyle") and I am an outpatient therapist with Seneca. My office is in Room K-10. Check out our virtual office!  I provide short-term individual and group therapy to students who do not have Medi-Cal. My colleague, Dr. Cristina Scott, meets with students who are Medi-Cal eligible for individual and group therapy. In addition to therapy services, I support our school staff in implementing social-emotional learning and trauma-informed care practices in their classroom. I also provide support with the entire school community on self-care and community wellness practices. Please feel free to email me if you have questions regarding mental health resources:  


The Coordination of Services Team (COST) is available to all students with a variety of supports available. In order to get connected with supports, such as Seneca, a referral form must be completed. If you would like to fill out a COST referral, complete this link.
