Clinical Mental Health Counseling


Richard Hoffman, Ph.D.

Clinical Director of Christian Counseling Associates

Christian Counseling Associates (CCA) provides individual, marriage, and family counseling. We serve Christians who want their faith integrated into the counseling process and those holding any beliefs or attitudes toward spirituality. Our counselors will help you identify the core issues that have caused your emotional and personal problems and efficiently develop strategies to resolve the issues that have you stuck.
Our counselors are experts in faith-based clinical counseling and highly trained from accredited institutions. We have a heart for God, families, and those who struggle with personal life challenges. Our organization is well established, with a location near you. In addition, when an onsite location is not convenient, we provide excellent online counseling services. CCA also provides many treatment options not available with smaller practices, such Alpha-Stim treatment for depression and anxiety, Freespira Biofeedback for Panic Disorder, and psychiatric medications if desired.
