Who are we?
WestCoast Children’s Clinic, located in Oakland, California, is a non-profit community psychology clinic that has provided mental health services to Bay Area children since 1979. Our mission is threefold: 1) to provide psychological services to vulnerable children, adolescents, and their families regardless of their ability to pay; 2) to train the next generation of mental health professionals; 3) to improve services to children and families by conducting research on the impact of clinical services and utilizing findings to advocate on behalf of the children we serve. Working at WestCoast Children’s Clinic means being part of an organization that is client-centered, trauma-informed, collaborative, and committed to justice and equity.
WestCoast Children’s Clinic is committed to providing psychological services to vulnerable children, youth and their families, regardless of their ability to pay, and to expanding the reach of psychological services through practice and research. To ensure the ongoing availability of these services, WestCoast is dedicated to training the next generation of mental health professionals.
