The Counseling Alliance of Virginia



The Counseling Alliance of Virginia believes everyone has the capacity to live a healthy and productive life when offered the support they deserve.

A major strength for CAVA is our commitment to clinical excellence.  CAVA’s foundation is deeply rooted in Structural Family Therapy, a theory of change that has been researched and utilized for over 50 years.  Our clinicians provide quality services while developing their own clinical style and specialties.

Our clinicians receive weekly individual and/or group supervision by seasoned licensed clinicians.

CAVA’s Mission is to:

  • Provide a safe and supportive environment for clients to heal during challenging times.
  • Serve and care for individuals, couples, and families impacted by mental illness, substance abuse, trauma, foster care and/or other life stressors.
  • Form a community of clinicians with diverse knowledge and skills in the mental health field utilizing a theoretical framework of Structural Family Therapy
  • Meet diverse client needs through a variety of clinical specialists with expertise in cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment, body-mind-spirit connectivity, and solution focused approaches.

Our Vision is to elevate the therapeutic care being offered to the community and strengthen the integrity of the field as a whole through the development of trained, dedicated clinicians.  We believe by investing in clinicians who have a desire and passion to help others, we will provide a safe supportive therapy group with knowledge, skills, and techniques to best serve the community.

Our Philosophy is to Care and Serve…
