It can be difficult to access mental health care. In 2020, more than half of people with a mental health condition did not receive treatment in the U.S., according to data from the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI). The data also show that in West Virginia, 22.2% of adults with a mental health condition were not able to access counseling or therapy.

In the hustle bustle of life, it can be difficult to find time to pause, reflect on where you are, and unpack some of the emotional baggage that we all carry. As that bag gets heavier, some parts of you may start to ache and flare up.
In mental health, these aches and flare ups may look like irritability, sleep difficulties, impaired relationships, concentration difficulties, excessive worrying, and a sense of discontent that you can’t seem to shake off.
In therapy, you will have a place and time where you can pause, reflect, and unpack challenges with a qualified therapist. From the first visit, we ensure that services are tailored to you and what you need.
Our therapists work to build a relationship with you to ensure that we are meeting you where you are at. We aim to center you, your needs, and your experiences.
In recognizing that some experiences you have may be traumatic, we utilize a trauma-informed approach that applies practices that are rooted in the best science out there.

According to the last published , approximately 1 in 5 U.S. Americans live in a rural area. In West Virginia, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Economic Research Services indicates that over 600,000 people reside in rural areas.
With so many West Virginia residents living in rural communities, we recognize the need for services that address common barriers to rural behavioral health, such as stigma, privacy, cultural sensitivity, and quality. Even more so, we recognize the need for services to be accessible.
Telehealth has been identified by SAMHSA as a viable option for minimizing barriers to behavioral health services for those living in rural areas and those in other settings.
That’s why we offer an option to attend appointments online through telehealth services. By offering virtual appointments, we can work around the unique barriers to behavioral healthcare access and ensure that you have access to the care that you need. Appointments you can attend virtually include individual therapy and peer recovery services.
In addition to supporting our rural communities, we also recognize that telehealth offers flexibility and convenience for those whose schedules are busy and ever-changing.
Whatever the reason, we can help.Call to schedule a telehealth appointment today.
