Metaphor Therapy is located at 2329 Santa Clara Avenue #202, Alameda, CA 94501. Unfortunately, the elevator in the building is frequently under repair, but when it's working, it has an entry width of just over two feet.

Parking and Transit

There is metered parking on the surrounding blocks, as well as a large paid parking garage around the corner at 1442 Oak Street, Alameda, CA 94501. The meters and garage are $2 or less an hour and accept coins and credit cards. There is unmetered parking available on Santa Clara Avenue a few blocks in either direction from the office.

There are AC Transit stops for lines 20, 21, 51A, 314, 851, O, and OX within a block.

Mailing Address

MacKenzie's mailing address is P.O. Box 6384, Alameda, CA 94501. She is able to receive mail at Metaphor's physical address, but her post office box is more reliable.
