Counseling for Children & Teens
Children and adolescents aren’t just small grown-ups – they have their own unique challenges to confront as they grow and learn through various stages of development. Navigating family dynamics, processing normal feelings, balancing responsibility and play…these normal things can be difficult even for adults! Add things like hormonal changes, bullying, learning disabilities, depression or changes in home life and it isn’t surprising that one in five kids develop a serious mental illness. The good news is that early intervention has been proven effective, and we’re here to help children process difficult emotions, address behavior problems and strengthen social skills, emotional intelligence and healthy coping mechanisms.
We often recommend family involvement in counseling to help teach everyone better ways to support each other, address specific issues, improve communication and conflict resolution skills or just deepen connection. This is especially the case when children or adolescents are having emotional or behavioral issues, and need extra structure and support.
Behavioral Assessment & Intervention
Negative behavior can be frustrating for teachers and families, but it’s important to remember that behavior is a form of communication. Children may “act out” and behave in challenging ways for many different reasons in an attempt to tell us that something is wrong. Maybe a child is acting out in class because he’s having a hard time learning the material, or is skipping class because she feels anxious about being called on. Behavioral assessment can help identify the motivations behind inappropriate behavior, and we can then develop an intervention plan to help your child learn more effective, constructive ways of dealing with difficult emotions and situations.
Care Coordination & Referral Assistance
Physical and emotional health influence each other, and are influenced by many other factors as well. That’s why care coordination can make such a positive difference. By getting to know your family’s need and preferences, organizing and referring you to different types of care and helping you navigate between providers, we can help you proactively get the healthcare and community resources to help your family thrive. Whether your family is dealing with a major transition like job loss or a new baby, or could just use help finding a new primary care provider, we can provide a little extra help to reach your health and wellness goals.
Our centers are currently offering counseling, behavioral assessments and wraparound care and referral assistance. Created with flexibility in mind, we plan to expand our services to include additional medical and behavioral care and educational opportunities in the future.

Counseling for Children & Teens
Counseling can help young people navigate the challenges they face and develop a healthier sense of self.
Understanding why your child is acting out is the first step toward helping them make more constructive choices.
Care Coordination & Referrals
A care coordinator can help you get the healthcare and community resources you need to help your family thrive.
The services of the Mapleton Community Resource Center and Siuslaw Student Resource Center are available to all youth in our community. Check out the topics below for answers to some of the most common questions about using our services, or call us at (541) 997-5410.
How do I qualify for services?
All youth in our community may use our services, regardless of insurance coverage or family income. If you do have insurance, you will be asked to bring your card with you to your first appointment.
How do I make an appointment?
To make your first appointment, you will need to complete a new patient packet.
You may stop by the resource center, call (541) 997-5410 or download a new patient packet below.
Once you complete and return the packet to us, we will schedule you for an initial assessment. This appointment takes about 90 minutes and a parent or guardian should be present. After the assessment, we will schedule follow up appointments as needed.
Do I need a referral?
Students may self-refer or be referred by a school counselor, parent or guardian. Your doctor can also refer you, but you do not have to have a primary care provider’s referral to receive services.
How do I get to my appointment?
We are currently offering in-clinic and video appointments to accommodate different family needs during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Until school returns to in-person instruction, families must arrange for student transportation to and from in-person appointments.
Will you tell anyone what I say in my appointments?
Your appointments, medical history and the things you choose to share with us are completely confidential. There may be some situations in which limited information may be shared to help you get the care you need (for instance, with your primary care doctor or insurance company). You will receive a disclosure about when and what type of information may be shared and with whom in your initial new patient packet.
Do I need to have parent permission?
If you are 14 or older, you may choose to self-refer without a parent or guardian. We encourage family involvement whenever possible to help everyone in your family communicate and work together better, but we understand that there may be things you may want to talk about alone. Whatever you – or you and your family – share in your appointments is kept confidential, no matter your age.

We are currently offering in-clinic and video appointments to accommodate different family needs during the pandemic.
For in-person appointments, we are taking the following steps to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and protect the health of all our staff and patients:
- We are staggering appointments to minimize the overlap of students/families in the centers and to allow for additional cleaning between appointments.
- We require all staff and visitors to wear a mask and practice social distancing while inside the resource centers.
- We ask that parents/guardians and visitors who are not joining their students in session wait in their cars to minimize the overlap of people in the waiting room.
- We thoroughly sanitize the rooms between patients.
PeaceHealth providers are friendly, caring professionals with years of experience helping children and families grow healthier and stronger. You can rest assured knowing that your family’s care is being handled by caregivers who have met our rigorous education, training, licensing and confidentiality standards.
