Village Counseling Center
Shell Beach, CA
We at Village Counseling Center are convinced that therapy need not take years to be effective. On the contrary, positive personal change can occur quickly. It just takes courage, some insight and a few new strategies.
Our specialty at VCC is Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, which centers on helping clients clarify their goals, understand and work through roadblocks, and finally break down challenges into incremental tasks. Whether it takes a few weeks or a few months, our clients often discover they actually possessed the resources to solve their problems, they just needed help viewing them from a different perspective. Thatís where we come in.
Village Counseling Center offers a network of experienced therapy professionals throughout the California Central Coast, headed by director Clay Watkins, LMFT. We offer a range of therapeutic services for teens, families, couples and individual adults, both in-office and online therapy using videoconferencing over the Internet. We accept virtually all forms of insurance, and also offer services for those without insurance.
