Are you ready to quit?
All sessions are available by phone or in person, Covid regulations permitting.
Please contact us for current situation details.
The majority of our clients are from the San Francisco Bay Area. We serve the East Bay, including Contra Costa county and Alameda county with clients making the short trip to Mill Valley. Or if needed, we have a satellite office in Lafayette. From Berkeley, Richmond or Oakland, the trip is less than 30 minutes. We also get clients from Vallejo, Fairfield, and Vacaville.
For North Bay clients, such as those from Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Sonoma or Napa, there is a choice between the Mill Valley office and our office in Lagunitas, which is just 30 minutes from Petaluma via the Petaluma-Point Reyes road through Nicasio. We also have a satellite office in Santa Rosa for those with special circumstances. Peninsula, or South Bay clients find that the Mill Valley office is most convenient being just 10 minutes north of San Francisco. Since over 90% of our clients need only one session, people are willing and able to make the effort to drive up to 2 hours or more since it means that they won’t ever be smoking again.
Our mission is to help anyone who is sincere in his or her desire to quit smoking. Phone sessions or in-person sessions are equally succesful, your choice.
