Youth and Family Counseling

South Lane Mental Health works with children (ages 2 months-18 years) and families to address problems related to anger, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, poor communication, as well as family changes/transitions and many other mental health conditions and mood disorders.

Counselors specialize in the use of play, art and sand tray therapy in order to offer children comfortable ways to explore, express and resolve feelings about situations or events that may be distressing or confusing to them. Our facility is equipped with therapeutic rooms especially suited to expressive therapies with children.

Counselors also work with parents, grandparents and caregivers to provide a safe place to express and explore concerns regarding their child. Resolving parent-child conflicts, improving family-wide communication, gaining realistic expectations for children, and learning effective parenting strategies are offered.

South Lane Mental Health youth counselors recognize that raising children is a community effort.  With permission from caregivers, our youth counselors have experience coordinating with a number of community organizations including the South Lane Relief Nursery, Great Days Early Education Center, Head Start of Lane County, South Lane School District, and The Child Welfare Division of the Department of Human Services.
 
South Lane Mental Health does not offer supervised visitation or court ordered parenting classes.  Families are encouraged to speak directly to their child’s therapist regarding the barriers and boundaries around providing testimony during custody cases.”
 
South Lane Mental Health works collaboratively with the South Lane School District and Pleasant Hill School District and offers School-Based Therapy services in the following SLSD schools: Bohemia, Harrison, Cottage Grove High School, Al Kennedy Alternative High School and Pleasant Hill High/Middle School.  Spaces for School-Based services are limited and referrals for School-Based services should come through your child’s school.  Speak to your school’s administrator or counselor for additional information.

Case Management

South Lane Mental Health promotes recovery, independence, and successful community living. Counselors and case managers work one-on-one with clients to develop a support system, stable housing and stable income. Counselors and case managers check on clients daily and provide assistance with budgeting, shopping, and other independent living skills.

Adult and Couples Counseling

South Lane Mental Health treats a range of mental health and emotional issues including depression and other mood disorders such as post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD), trauma, abuse, and anxiety disorders in individuals, families and children. We are committed to promoting emotional, behavioral and psychological growth so that clients can better address their mental health concerns. Counselors use a variety of therapeutic techniques to support individuals, couples and groups. Counselors offer trauma informed therapy, cognitive therapy, Neurofeedback, EMDR,  group therapy, and other approaches to recovery.

Medication Management

South Lane Mental Health believes that a team effort involving clients, family members and supporters, and medical practitioners can most effectively guide medication decisions that will best promote recovery. We provide mental health assessment and medical reviews, coordinate with primary care physicians, and provide direct medication management for those who would benefit from receiving these services.

Neurofeedback Therapy

Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback that helps you harmonize your brain waves, naturally (without medications). During the neurofeedback sessions, your brain “learns” how to bring abnormally fast or slow waves into the normal range, which teaches self-control of brain functions to subjects by measuring brain waves and providing a feedback signal. This highly effective form of therapy involves the client relaxing and watching a video or movie, while we monitor your brain waves.
