The Social Growth Center in Orange County envisions helping individuals address negative feelings and social challenges by learning the essential skills to manage life and make & maintain lasting relationships. We specialize in working with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, anxiety and depression. Our therapeutic programs include evidence-based social skills groups, individual and family therapy, and parent consultation. At the Social Growth Center we use a realistic approach in social coaching and teach skills using concrete rules and steps of social behavior via lessons, role-play demonstrations, behavioral rehearsal exercises and assignments to practice the skills in natural social settings. In one-on-one work we use cognitive behavioral therapy to help you understand how your thoughts impact your mood and behaviors. We give you the opportunity to take back control of your life.


Our goal is to help individuals fill the gaps in their social skills and work through the barriers that prevent relationships from blossoming. If you're looking for help navigating a challenging situation for you, your child or your family, we are passionate about our work and would love the opportunity to help you or your loved one learn the skills necessary to build healthy relationships.
