Counseling Centers

SF Bay Guardian Names CIIS Counseling Centers "Best of the Bay."

The counseling centers of California Institute of Integral Studies have been offering mind-body-spirit psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and families in the Bay Area for more than 25 years, providing a safe and supportive setting in which clients can explore a wide range of life issues—emotional, interpersonal, psychological, or spiritual.

Conveniently located in several areas throughout San Francisco, the centers are staffed by graduate students and postgraduate interns who are supervised by licensed mental health professionals.

Our therapists are well trained in a variety of therapeutic orientations, such as somatic, transpersonal, psychodynamic, and Gestalt, as well as more conventional modes of psychotherapy.

Because our therapists integrate Western psychology with knowledge from the world's spiritual traditions, the counseling provided in our centers is unique and respects the specific growth and healing process of each individual.

Center for Somatic Psychotherapy

A part of the Bay Area mental health community since 1991, the Center for Somatic Psychotherapy specializes in body-oriented, psychodynamic, and developmental approaches.

Clinic Without Walls
The Clinic Without Walls is the training clinic for Community Mental Health graduate students. Our staff provide psychotherapy to residents and community members at four San Francisco public housing sites: Nihonmachi Terrace, Valencia Gardens, Rich Sorro Commons, and Mercy Housing. We have offices at each location.

Integral Counseling Center (Pierce Street)

A nonprofit counseling center dedicated to providing affordable psychotherapy to residents of the San Francisco Bay Area. Our therapy is tailored to honor and respect the uniqueness of each individual.

Integral Counseling Center (Church Street)

Our therapists take an integral approach to healing that recognizes the interrelationships among mind, body, and spirit. Our affordable approaches emanate from traditional disciplines as well as contemporary humanistic and transpersonal psychologies, including Gestalt, narrative therapy, psychosynthesis, and dreamwork.

Psychological Services Center

At the Psychological Services Center we view psychotherapy as an intermittent lifelong process where individuals seek services for varying periods of time as the need arises. Our service model holds brief and longer-term therapy as being equally valuable, where length of therapy and the treatment approach are determined by the presenting concerns as well as client preference.
