Individual Counseling Services at Adventist Health Portland

You are more than just your body; your health care should reflect that.

That’s why Adventist Health Portland provides individual counseling services integrated in many of our primary care clinics. Our shorter-term model of care works to assess and stabilize your immediate needs and connect you with longer-term therapy or other programs as needed.

When you come to us, you get an integrated team offering comprehensive health care that treats your mind, body and spirit. Our counselors are certified and experienced in many aspects of mental and emotional health. You can rest easier knowing an entire team is working with you to help you live your best life.

To schedule an initial appointment, please ask your Adventist Health primary care provider to connect you with a counselor at one of the clinics below.

Appointments are available Monday through Friday.
