Community Counseling Center

Empowering families to build on individual and collective strengths to attain their goals through research-based relational, solution-oriented, and collaborative therapy.

Our History

In 1959, Catholic Community Services opened the Community Counseling Center (CCC), the first outpatient community mental health clinic in the Mid-Willamette Valley. We serve our community’s vulnerable children, youth, adults and families suffering from mental health issues.

OUR GOAL

Empowered People

At CCC, we encourage the involvement of parents and significant others in one’s life whenever possible and involve families in treatment plan development. It is our goal to build on each family’s unique strengths to help them raise healthy, empowered children who live self-determined and self-fulfilling lives. 

Here, we support and empower individuals and families to build on their competencies, resiliencies, and preferences to achieve goals that they define; services are often provided in concert with other community partners involved with the family.

WHO WE ARE

Our Therapists & Staff

Our caring staff is committed to strengthening families and helping children and youth succeed at school, at home and with their peers. Our services often reduce the risk of a child’s removal from the home, hospitalizations, and other higher levels of care.

We are committed to delivering evidence-based services, proven to be effective, in an environment of caring and respect. We offer multicultural and bilingual services. Hablamos español.

WANT COUNSELING?

Who is Eligible

At CCC, we serve children, youth and adults from a variety of family settings, including those living with foster parents, relatives, and single parents. We respectfully and confidentially welcome those of all faiths, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientation and economic status.
