The Gallery

If you feel that you are in crisis or could hurt yourself, call 911.
Your life is too important.
Who are we?

The Gallery has two Clinician's, Anh and Karla (check out the pictures tab). In Anh and Karla, you will find caring individuals who want to help you overcome any barriers to your success.

Why would someone come here?

The Gallery was developed to give the students of WHS hope, support, and security. The Gallery’s goal is to break the mentality that help is for weak people. True confidence is found in knowing our areas of weakness, then utilizing the strength of others to confront and challenge it within ourselves. If you are struggling (or just unsure) and could use some help, then The Gallery would like to help.

What do we do at The Gallery?

The Gallery is the community based mental health services arm of Whittier High School. We offer an array of services to the students and families that attend WHS, Including: a comprehensive psychosocial assessment; individual, family, and group therapy. The clinicians at The Gallery utilize short term mental health practices which are research based and supported for their efficacy with youth and families.

The space was named The Gallery to also be able to house all forms of works of art by the students of Whittier High School. If you have anything you would like to display, please let us know.
