Welcome to The Mindful Space!

Welcome to the new mental health center at Barstow Community College called The Mindful Space. This is a place where students can now receive mental health services from a mental health counselor, Dr. Christa Banton, who is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.  Services are tailored to meet the needs of each individual and are provided free to students.   

Services that are provided through The Mindful Space include individual psychotherapy, coaching, group therapy, assessment, crisis intervention, consultation, referrals to additional services in the community, and disciplinary intervention. Services are voluntary and referrals can be made by students, staff, or faculty through the following email themindfulspace@barstow.edu

All are welcome at The Mindful Space, a space to heal, recover, and to find support and guidance for the everyday situations and difficulties we face. Remember a single step forward makes a change in your life.

We are here for you at The Mindful Space.
