Therapy, counseling, sliding scale

About the Center

A Center for Creative Change (ACCC) is a non-profit (501.C3) educational, charitable corporation and counseling center. We have been serving all populations in our community since 1982.

The focus is on processing through crisis and distress. Presenting problems of family discord, individual and couples with a variety of problems, children whose grades have dropped and are having problems at home. The next step is to introduce creativity to our clients, which includes multiple styles of talk therapy, the use of journaling, art therapy and other techniques to enhance personal growth and change. Our philosophy is that change occurs when we move from crisis to productivity through creativity.

A Center for Creative Change is staffed by Director and Supervisor Mark Cady, M.S., LMFT (#46708) and a group of Trainees and Interns. For clients without insurance and in need of low fee assistance, our staff of highly trained and experienced Trainees and Interns can provide therapy on a sliding scale. Please contact the office to inquire if we can meet your financial needs.
