Dear Colleagues, Friends, and Members of our Community,
Claremont Counseling & Support Center, A Psychological Corporation (CCSC) is a private practice Counseling Center serving the Claremont, Chino and surrounding communities. We are a small group of psychologists and psychotherapists who are licensed and pre-licensed in California.
We celebrate the conversation on race that has come from many sectors of the nation, as well as the denunciations of brutality, violence, and oppression against the black community. The CCSC team stands with all who demand an end to racial crimes and injustices. We join with those demanding change and expressing a desire to make a meaningful difference. It is time that our nation finally addresses and rectifies the inequalities that have brought harm to so many, and for so long.
As therapists, our work starts – but does not end - with listening. As we learn, we will seek ways to make concrete changes in our own lives and in our community. As a multi-ethnic and multi-racial staff with a majority of white members, we recognize that many of us are coming from a place of privilege, and that we are in a “bubble" in our communities and in our lives. We also acknowledge that we have benefited from this privilege in a multitude of ways.
Racism is deeply rooted in our society and injustice has been rampant for far too long. CCSC is committed to our mission to ease suffering, to create a safe and healing space for all those seeking emotional healing and ongoing improvement of mental and emotional health. We are now, once again questioning how we can increase our attempts to create an inclusive and informed environment for our patients and, importantly, our staff. We need to get better at actively working on evaluating and incrementally changing our complicity in systemic oppression. As a group of psychotherapists, it is our aim to support and encourage growth, both personal, familial, and systemic.
We understand that standing with and supporting is not enough. CCSC is recommitting to learning more about and utilizing our privilege to speak up and provide an avenue to hold ourselves accountable. We do not want to offer a neutral stance of support that will fade over time but rather our desire is to use our influence to perpetuate a community whose values are also fairness, justice, and care.
From all of us at Claremont Counseling & Support Center
Today you are one step closer to feeling empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.
As solution-focused therapists, our goals are to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
We are a group of professionals with varying degrees of education and experience. Some of our therapists consider themselves to be generalists who are able to work with a wide variety of clinical issues and individuals. Other therapists specialize in addressing areas of particular concern.
We work with individuals, couples and families facing life’s difficult issues. One of the main focuses of the office is on relationship and marital satisfaction .
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Our clinicians have additional training and experience in working with individuals suffering from depression and anxiety, family of origin completion issues, marital concerns, substance use, addictions, relationship issues and eating disorders. We encourage clients to focus on their strengths while increasing their ability to address areas of growth.
