Embark at Campbell FAQ

Outpatient therapy at our California location is a form of mental health treatment that can be performed alongside someone’s daily life. For those who have moderate mental health symptoms and a daily routine that is not negatively impacting their mental health, outpatient therapy may be a good option.

An outpatient visit at Embark at Campbell involves weekly sessions with one of our bay area therapists. On average, these visits can last anywhere from 1-5 hours a day, 12-20 hours per week, 4-6 days a week.

There are many benefits to outpatient treatment at Embark at Campbell. Our outpatient programs allow teens and young adults to benefit from current work and school schedules, support from friends and family, and a more affordable cost on average in comparison to most inpatient treatment options.

The goal of outpatient therapy at Embark at Campbell is to help teens and young adults overcome difficult mental health and substance abuse issues through a series of visits to our California outpatient clinics.

The main difference between inpatient and outpatient treatment is the treatment setting. Outpatient services provide a good option for teens and young adults who can make visits to one of our bay area therapists while living at home and maintaining their daily routine. Inpatient treatment is a good option for those that need dedicated 24-hour care in a hospital setting to overcome mental health and substance abuse issues.

The length of outpatient treatment depends on each teen or young adult’s particular needs. On average, outpatient treatment at our Campbell clinic can last from 3 months to 1 year. If a deeper level of treatment is needed, adolescents can step up a level in care to an inpatient treatment program near them.

Everyone at Embark Campbell has shown kindness and compassion to our family during a very difficult time. Their patience with my kid has helped them open up and learn valuable tools to share and understand their emotions.

Embark in Campbell has been amazing for my family! We had tried different programs for our child and all but lost hope for them to connect and engage in therapy. Everyone we met has been so kind and supportive, and our kid has really started to open up with the other kids in the group, and even with us at home. They don’t just work with our child, but also with us in weekly family therapy which has helped us understand better ways to communicate and behave to support them. For anyone struggling with their teens behaviors or emotions, I would definitely recommend reaching out to Embark!

This place is amazing. The kindness and caring from all the staff is beyond what anyone could expect from a treatment facility. They go above and beyond to help their clients by giving them the necessary tools and support. What I found most remarkable about this team of caregivers is that from the moment we walked in the door, they made us feel like we mattered. The compassion shows with their interactions with clients AND their families. If you need help and if you need to know you matter, this is the right place for you. Compassion, empathy, and support are the true cornerstone to making recovery from mental health issues successful, and every member of the staff at Embark has all those attributes. We feel very fortunate to have found them!!!

The team at Embark has exceeded our expectations.We sought care for our teen from many other programs in the South Bay and they don’t come close to what the Embark team offered to our child.Our teen reports that for the first time, in a long time, they felt heard by their therapist and respected.There’s simply no better program.

I visited Embark in my capacity as a Head of School for a local private school. I was immediately impressed with their beautiful facility, which I feel confident would put teens and parents at ease. They also have two adorable therapy dogs who are a pleasure! I've met with several different administrators at this new Campbell location and have been impressed with their background and dedication to helping families. In a time when finding mental health services can be a real challenge, I'm so glad Embark opened in our area - I would not hesitate to refer one of my families to them.

I am so glad that I found this program. My daughter started going to Embark's 3-day per week intensive outpatient program (IOP) about one month ago. She was filled with apprehension at first since she had a very negative experience at the last IOP place that she participated in (at Aspire Los Gatos). The staff and therapists at Embark has been wonderful! The approach is more hands on and allows the teens to express their issues in either a group and/ or a private setting. I also appreciate that the group size is much smaller and intimate. The facility is beautiful and provides a warm and comfortable environment for the teens. It doesn't feel like a "hospital" unlike the other place that she initially attended. I highly recommend this place!

Sarah Maghrbi

Position: AMFT
My name is Sarah and I’m an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. As a Bay Area native, I lived in Los Angeles for a period of time completing my undergraduate degree at UCLA before moving back to the Bay to pursue my Masters degree in Counseling Psychology at Santa Clara University. I have always found myself drawn to working with youth, dedicating my early career to foster children and adolescents ages 0-21, as well as high school students for a number of years. Additionally, I worked with children and adolescents in underserved communities in the South Bay, providing therapeutic care to the youth, their families, and the larger community. To me, mental health is holistic – it is inexplicably intertwined and interconnected to everything in our communities. My clinical interests include person-centered therapy, TF-CBT, emotion-focused therapy, the effects of trauma, the function of sleep, family dynamics, and self-actualization. With these specialties at the core of my practice, I am eager to jump into helping clients and their families find healing and strength here at Embark. When not working, I enjoy watering my plants, finding new hiking trails around the Bay, and basking in the beautiful California sunshine.

Charles Parker

Position: DO, Psychiatrist
Dr. Parker is Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist, certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology for Adult Psychiatry. He completed medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Adult Psychiatric training at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, then next completed a Fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Hahnemann, now a part of Drexel University in Philadelphia, where he served as Chief Resident. In addition, he completed psychoanalytic training with the Philadelphia Association for Psychoanalysis, and is certified by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, since 2003, to use SPECT brain imaging to measure and target specific functional brain challenges. His comprehensive medical perspectives include many levels of psychiatric training and experience, including an ongoing special interest in treatment failure and underappreciated, measured biomedical conditions that often impair predictable medical intervention strategies. He is experienced as a personable team player in providing comprehensive medical care through outpatient, partial, hospital and residential care systems with years of experience as both an on-site and remote medical team administrator. His several senior administrative experiences served as his best lesson-plans on the importance of responsible teamwork and feedback within each system. Effective feedback addresses less apparent complexities. His many years [since 1987] of substance abuse practice, recovery systems consultations, and clinical experiences in working within the field of addiction medicine, both programmatic and outpatient, led him to write Deep Recovery – How to use your most difficult relationships to find out who you are, in 1992. Deep Recovery – https://amzn.to/3aBt8tt – addresses essential often overlooked clinical challenges, still alive these many years later, regarding identifying and treating individuals with addiction/recovery/codependency issues. He works to understand and target the complex array of underlying contributory issues in every clinical-dependency review. Balanced self-management and relationship consistency with both staff and patients build trust and recovery-team predictability. Precise pattern recognition and ownership turn the tide. After more than twenty years of national pharmacologic teaching experience with medical providers – regarding diagnosis and medical treatments for depression, mood disorders, and ADHD – Parker provides a considerable street experience with understanding medical management details. Interestingly, conundrums regarding ADHD/Executive Function diagnosis and medication management persist today. In 2012 he wrote New ADHD Medication Rules: Brain Science and Common Sense – https://amzn.to/37J5QzM – to accurately address diagnostic and treatment complexities for Executive Function beyond the limited behavioral labels of “ADHD.” Parker’s mission: each medication treatment objective identifies mutually-assessed and numbered clinical markers based on brain function – discussed in an understandable way so that all treatment participants concur and explicitly report on those specific treatment objectives. Numbers and clear targets prevent guesswork with labels. Patient education regarding precise treatment objectives and outcome expectations provide reassuring communication tools for each re-evaluation. Dr. Parker loves the outdoors, was an Eagle Scout, and currently is a non-recovering fly fisherman, who ties his own flies and fishes for stripers with a flyrod on the Penobscot Bay in Midcoast Maine. He loves to catch what’s deep and can’t be seen.
