Wallowa Valley Center for Wellness can offer help when individuals feel depressed, feel anxious, are having problems in relationships, can’t sleep, have had negative experiences that affect how they feel about life, and other problems. We have several counselors who have experience with these kinds of problems and help people feel better in their lives. Coming to a counselor does not mean you have mental illness. All of us have problems and sometimes need the help of others so that we don’t keep feeling bad. Our counselors are trained to be good listeners and are able to assist you in developing a treatment plan to deal with your problems.

Counseling sessions are typically 50-60 minutes in length. How often an individual is seen depends on their needs and is decided between the individual and the counselor. We will usually offer 6-12 sessions but sometimes individuals are seen less, and sometimes they are seen more, depending again on what the needs of the individual are.

When someone comes in for counseling services, their personal information is kept confidential. We do not share your information with anyone unless you say it is ok. We usually do ask if we can share information with your doctor because that way we can all work together to provide you the best care. We offer different types of counseling and services and these will be discussed with you when you come in. Some of the types of counseling and services are:
  • CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) 
  • Motivational Interviewing 
  • Solution Focused Brief Counseling 
  • DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) 
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) 
  • Play Therapy 
  • Psychiatric services - Our psychiatrists can review your medications and they might recommend a different or additional medication, but you will always be able to make the final decision. 
  • Alcohol & Drug and Gambling evaluation & treatment
