Helping people grow since 1979

California Counseling Associates (CCA) is a group practice of eight psychotherapists: psychologists, social workers and MFT's. Serving Alameda and the surrounding East Bay communities for over 40 years, CCA offers psychotherapy and counseling for individual children, adolescents and adults, as well as counseling for couples and families. We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds to our practice. 


We believe that psychotherapy helps people grow and change.  Every stage of life contains potential challenges or conflicts that can be difficult to manage. These conflicts can leave people feeling confused about the choices they need to make, and can affect an individual’s ability to conduct meaningful, satisfying relationships with others.


In therapy, we join clients in finding successful answers to these challenges, helping to improve relationships, to enhance personal growth, and to develop more fulfilling answers to difficult problems. 

Our aim is to match you with a therapist who can help you reach goals of reducing distress, developing relationships and promoting a healthier life.
