Community mental health providers

If you wish to transfer on-going counseling treatment or are looking to start personal counseling with a local provider, we can assist in connecting you to someone who is able to meet your goals and needs.

Community resources

There may be times when you need a specialized service. Examples include assessment for ADHD or learning differences or community resources to assist with housing, food, or other assistance. We will work with you to connect with appropriate resources.
