A BRIGHT SPOT IN 2020, California Counseling Clinics (CCC), an innovative mental health clinic, opened in Santa Barbara. CCC offers various modes of therapy, including but not limited to individual, family, and group, as well as psychological assessments and workshops. Among other approaches, CCC uses the research-based treatment model called Solution-Focused Single Session that incorporates a clinical team consultation.
The Solution-Focused Single Session model provides immediate recommendations for a person’s issue and includes therapeutic strategies from not just one, but a team of mental health specialists. The clinicians at CCC specialize in a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, stress management, trauma, grief and loss, relationship issues, medical issues, pregnancy, parenting, life transitions, cross-cultural issues, and situational crises. Individuals have the option of same-day appointments as well as telehealth services. CCC offers multiple group-therapy options including a weekly therapy and support group and a group for adults with ADHD.
