Aspire Counseling Services® is proud to announce the grand opening of our newest location, Simi Valley, CA. Nestled in between the San Fernando Valley and the neighboring communities within Ventura County, Simi Valley has a uniquely small-town feel, but with all the sophistication and influence of the larger Los Angeles County. Simi Valley is only a stone’s throw away from Hollywood, Malibu, and the greater Los Angeles area.
Aspire Counseling Services® is excited to have launched a Substance Use Disorder Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and is now accepting clients. We treat a wide spectrum of challenges, including but not limited to chemical dependency, family problems, codependency, co-occurring disorders, truancy and academic decline, gang involvement, and legal challenges.
Aspire Counseling Services® will soon be introducing a Substance Use Disorder Day Treatment Program (PHP) – for those who need a more intensive program to meet their needs and a Behavioral Health Intensive Outpatient Program for those who are not afflicted with substance related problems, but need help with emotional, behavioral, and mental health challenges.
Although new to Simi Valley, Aspire Counseling Services® staff has roots here going back decades. John Poleno, the Executive Director of Substance Use Disorder Services, has been a Simi Valley resident for over 20 years and has worked extensively within the community for the last decade to help reflect the strong familial and community values that attract people to this wonderful place. Jesse Finkbeiner, the Executive Director of Behavioral Health Services, grew up in Simi Valley and is an alumnus of Valley View Junior High School and Simi Valley High School. Jesse has been working with families and people in need here for the better part of the last 2 decades. Kimberly Beatty, Lead Counselor of the Substance Use Disorder Program, brings years of experience working with families and people struggling with addiction in Simi Valley for nearly a decade.
