In 1979 we began to offer an Outpatient Counseling Program. Therapists work with children ages 0 to 20 and their families. In 1998 we began offering counseling services to adults. Counselors provide treatment in the forms of individual therapy, group therapy, school consultation, couple or marriage counseling, family therapy and parent education groups. In addition, the outpatient program offers community based assessment services. These services can occur in our offices in Eugene or Springfield, the client’s home or at participating schools and medical clinics throughout Lane County and Deschutes County. This is a fee for service program.
