September 25 is National Psychotherapy Day! We are proud of our team of dedicated and compassionate therapists, who have helped our patients through COVID and beyond. Remember, counseling/therapy isn’t just for times when life seems tough….it can be preventive in nature, too. It can help you learn more about yourself, your relationships, and your visions for your life.
If you need someone to talk to, we are here for you! Just give us a call at (707) 961 3492 to make an appointment.

We had an amazing time at our annual staff retreat yesterday! We had a series of educational workshops, enjoyed lunch from La Palapa, and just had fun spending time together.
We also celebrated a LOT of staff milestones this year: a total of 22. Twelve staff members marked 5 years on #teammcc, four reached 10 years with us, and five employees have spent 15 years and counting with MCC! One of our dentists, Dr. Tad Ulatowski, reached his 20th anniversary of working for us and caring for our community. Truly impressive.
While the rest of us were having fun, our IT staff were moving hundreds of pounds of equipment from our Sequoia Circle site to to South Street, so our servers will be powered by our new generator if the power goes out. Our computers were working perfectly this morning. Thanks to our IT staff and everyone on #teammcc for bringing the #bestcareanywhere to the Coast!
