Counseling Services are available individuals and families with issues of stress, anxiety, obsessive–compulsive disorders, depression, trauma and other stress related problems, PTSD, bereavement, phase of life issues, low self- esteem, etc.
Services including solution-focused brief therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy are geared toward changing ways of thinking that can keep you stuck. For people with severe anxiety, learning how to get out of your head and into the present can be very helpful. Systematic muscle relaxation and changing breathing patterns can also make a positive difference. Counseling services help patients discover their own strengths, resources and coping skills to help them see that they already have the tools they need to move forward. Plumas Rural Health Center counseling services offer a safe, confidential place to talk and someone to listen without judgment.
