Youth and Family Counseling

Restore Hope, Renew Lives

Stressed Out? We Can Help.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, families in our community are being faced with incredible uncertainty and overwhelming stress.  Despite our best efforts, children and youth feel that stress and it can impact their mood and behaviors.  With social distancing protocols still in effect, families and caregivers can feel isolated and burnt out.

Remember, you are not alone! SLMH Youth Therapists are here to help.  While our services are currently limited to telehealth – you and your youth can still develop a meaningful relationship with one of our therapists.  We can provide individual and family therapy through video and phone platforms.

Not tech savvy?  Don’t worry!  We can walk you through the different platforms we use (, Google Duo, Google Hangouts, Skype and/or Zoom) to make sure we find a delivery that works for you and your family.  Our youth therapists continue to provide play therapy, expressive art interventions, coping skills, development, and emotional regulation with children as young as four years old using online video and phone platforms.  Struggling with your two or three-year-old?  We can provide parenting support over the phone or via video and walk you through those big tantrums and emotions.  Some of our current youth clients have commented that they prefer phone and video sessions!

Our Services:

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.
