Treatment and Staff
Before treatment begins, all clients go through an initial intake and assessment process to help staff members develop their care plans. While detox services are not available on-site, those in need can get referrals to nearby programs. Though programs may vary by client, each typically includes both individual and group therapy with evidence-based treatment practices including CBT, DBT, EMDR and Motivational Interviewing (MI). Because the organization works with so many different counselors, treatment modalities may also include holistic approaches such as art therapy, mindfulness and meditation.
Dual diagnosis support and medication management services are both available. Though 12-step participation is not always required, it may be encouraged in some cases. Groups cover many topics including stress management, wellness, parenting skills, emotional processing, trigger identification and relapse prevention.
The staff at West Valley Counseling includes psychologists, LMFTs, LCSWs, interns and additional Master’s and PhD-level counselors.
The organization also offers a three-day intensive workshop called Life in Transition, often for clients who have recently experienced a major loss, trauma or who are struggling with grief. As mentioned, family counseling is also available. Specific counseling services for LGBTQ clients are offered as well. Other services include domestic violence counseling, Spanish-speaking services, career counseling, groups for at-risk teens, anger management sessions, parenting classes and prenatal support. Finally, those who complete a program can also work with staff to develop stepped down aftercare plans.
Overall, West Valley Counseling is a broad counseling organization which offers a full suite of services to clients struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. Treatment is evidence-based and also includes holistic methods, educational sessions and flexible scheduling. Programs are open to clients of all ages, all at affordable rates. For those in the area, West Valley Counseling is a resource worth considering.
