About Christian Counseling Associates

Starting in 1968, Mike served in civilian and military mental health organizations with extensive experience in both outpatient and inpatient treatment facilities.

Christian Counseling Associates, Inc. was founded as a division of Resource Guidance Services, Inc. by Michael P. Flynn, LCSW, BCD, TRX in 1983. In 2014, we achieved a milestone. We launched a new division: RVA4 Fitness combining physical fitness with emotional well-being and relationship fitness. www.RVA4Fitness.com


We seek to inspire hope and to encourage faith, by guiding and assisting individuals in applying Christian principles to life’s tough situations.

Our mission is to provide a full range of outpatient family services from a Christian perspective and employ well trained clinical specialists within a wide range of treatment areas. We serve as a resource to churches, physicians, attorneys, educators and business leaders.


CCA provides a thriving environment and culture for interns and residents from Virginia Commonwealth University, Liberty University, Regent University, Capella University, South University and other universities. CCA has trained over 250 interns and residents. This enables us to provide some services at a reduced fee rate for people with limited or no insurance coverage. It also keeps us current in the latest treatment theories and therapeutic modalities.
