Behavioral Health

“Our Mission…

To Promote and Protect the Health of ALL People in Tillamook County”

Behavioral Health provides patients the opportunity to consult with a professional Social Worker or Counselor.

This includes brief interventions and models which support fully integrated behavioral/primary care health staff.

Patients receive high quality primary care with behavioral health services to help them cope with issues such as stress, depression, substance use disorders, and problems resulting from living with a chronic physical health condition.

Behavioral health is a short-term consultation and is not intended to be long-term, intensive psychotherapy.

We strive to provide services to all patients using trauma sensitive approaches, acknowledging that we all come to this place with our own histories, experiences, and perspectives.

BH is a short-term consultation not intended to be long-term intensive psychotherapy and will always relate to improving overall physical health.  We can assist patients in accessing more intensive therapy if requested.

Approximately 15- 30 minutes and follow ups are scheduled anywhere from every two weeks, once a month, once every six months. Follow ups are to check-in on goals, set new goals, and problem solve.

Anyone who is experiencing difficulties with a chronic condition such as Diabetes, Obesity, Migraines, Hypertension,and Chronic Pain. We also work with individuals with other conditions such as Fatigue, Pregnancy, Post-Partum, Sleep Concerns, Chest Pain, Depression, Anxiety, Substance use disorders which includes Opioid use disorders, and Stress reduction.

No, we do not. We do work with your primary care provider if you need assistance or coordination.

We do not refuse services to anyone in the clinic.  We provide translators during sessions to help communicate effectively, and we have access to other interpreters if needed (Deaf and Hard of hearing services, etc.).

This depends on if you have insurance coverage, (private pay, or OHP), or if you are self-pay.  We do have a sliding fee scale. We do not refuse services based on inability to pay.
