- Individual & Family Counseling
- Requesting Services
- Psychiatric Services
- Case Managers & Peer Support
If you are considering mental health services, we start together with an assessment which takes a holistic look at your life – your reason for seeking services, health history, supports and resources you may already have, daily living needs or stresses, key life experiences, and any cultural or spiritual connections you may want to ensure are recognized. Your first appointment will be longer than a typical therapy appointment as a result. At the next appointments, we review assessment results together, introduce you to your therapist or counselor, and build your individual treatment plan and team. Our outpatient program provides individual counseling with the ability to provide some family/parent services in support of the individual’s treatment plan. We also offer mental health group services, although these services are not always covered by insurance. We will work with you if we feel that groups would be beneficial for you.
We primarily serve individuals ages 5 and up. Pediatric mental health services are a specialty service, we will work with you to locate a provider for the child.
We provide support for treatment of a wide range of mental health challenges and conditions, including if you are struggling with both a substance use and mental health challenge at the same time. We have a close partnership between our substance use and mental health treatment programs. This partnership is based on research that shows better outcomes for people who enter treatment for both conditions at the same time.
Please contact our main number 360-795-8630 opt. 2 with any questions.
How to Ask for Help
Simply call or stop by our office. You will be asked what kind of help you are looking for, as well as, necessary information about your medical insurance, level of income, who referred you, and basic health information. A face-to-face Intake Assessment can then be scheduled.
The intake confirms what services you qualify for, strengths and supports you already have, and other supports we might recommend by referral. This step is easiest if you arrive early to complete the intake paperwork; our staff are available to help as needed.
Individual Care Plan (ICP)
After the intake, you will be assigned a clinician who will work with you to develop an Individual Care Plan. This custom plan will guide us in helping you meet your goals. You have the right to change your care plan – or your clinician – as you need.
Masters-level clinicians offer a combination of individual, family, and/or group treatment options to meet your specific goals. Our clinicians use their skills to help meet the unique needs of each of our clients.
Our psychiatric services are provided by a child psychiatrist or, by telemedicine, an adult psychiatric prescriber. If your ICP needs include psychiatric medication, one of our psychiatric providers will meet with you to assess and manage those medication needs. They also consult with our clinicians (and your medical provider if possible) on a regular basis to ensure effective care.
If assigned in your Individual Care Plan (ICP), a Case Manager will help you find support for life needs that affect your ICP goals. This can include independent-living skills, managing a transition from a hospital or jail back into the community, help finding support for housing, income / bills, transportation, coordination with other professional supports, or other needs identified in your ICP.
Peer support counselors have been where you are. They have special training to share their lived experience with you, to model recovery and hold hope. Peer counselors “walk alongside” and will give you support and encouragement on your journey to achieving your ICP goals.
