From a pretty, tree-lined residential street in the Centennial neighborhood of Redwood City in California's Bay Area, Sequoia Counseling offers outpatient counseling for adults and families including children and teenagers. In operation since 1984, the organization treats a wide range of mental and behavioral health disorders, including eating disorders, problematic substance use, depression, anxiety, trauma, childhood abuse, and more.


Counseling is offered in individual, couple, family, and group settings. The facility's groups include gender-specific meetings (such as a midlife group for women in transition and a women's relationships and self-esteem group) as well as groups dedicated to the treatment and processing of codependency, childhood abuse, and grief. There's also dedicated programming for members of the LGBTQ community and the adult children of alcoholics.

Sequoia Counseling's staff can provide a range of evidence-based treatment methods, including but not limited to eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), neuro-linguistic programming, mindfulness, guided imagery, and sand-tray therapy.


Sequoia Counseling employs two licensed psychologists and numerous licensed clinical social workers and marriage and family therapists.


Appointments are available during daytimes, evenings, and weekends.

REVIEWS has not yet received any reviews from this facility’s alumni, affiliated friends or family members, or staff, however, secondary sites did yield some feedback: a 3.5-star average rating based on seven reviews left on Yelp at the time of this writing. [1] The positive reviews repeatedly praised one therapist at the center in particular, describing treatment taken with her as life-changing and even life-saving, in particular for mothers struggling with postpartum depression. "She was amazingly empathetic and knew exactly what to say to help me through the first few weeks of therapy so I could see there was a light at the end of the tunnel. As time went on she saw other things in me that no one else ever had. The trauma specific therapy we did changed my life. I'm not the anxious, nervous person I used to be," Stephanie wrote in a representative review.

However, three of the seven reviews were negative, and each of these reviews cited a less-than-satisfactory encounter with one of the facility's counseling staff. One therapist was described as curt and unprofessional, and reviewers painted other therapists as disinterested in caring for them.


Sequoia Counseling accepts most insurances, including TriCare, Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, CIGNA, and United. A sliding fee scale is available for eligible clients.
