Phoenix Counseling Center utilizes a client-centered, trauma-informed approach. Our motto, “Counseling from the Heart,” describes the warm, home-like setting you will experience while in treatment at Phoenix Counseling Center.
We are a nonprofit, outpatient counseling center offering substance use and mental health services for adults, adolescents, parents, and families living in the Rogue Valley. Our treatment services include individual, group, couples, and family counseling sessions for voluntary and mandated clients.
There are potential risks associated with any form of counseling. Risks might include experiencing unpleasant and/or uncomfortable feelings. Counseling also involves the potential benefit for greater awareness of self, improved problem-solving abilities, improved communication skills, and stable recovery.
At Phoenix Counseling Center you can be assured that no information you share with your counselor or other staff member will be shared with anyone outside of agency staff, unless you have given us written consent to do so.
We also expect you to honor the confidentiality of other clients at the agency. Please do not share any information you receive from other clients with anyone else, unless that information concerns threat of harm to that client or to others, in which case the information should only be shared with a staff member who will then inform the appropriate entities. Confidentiality is important in the group setting so that you and others may feel comfortable to share what you want. Breaches of confidentiality regarding information gained from other clients/group members (including names of group members) may result in you being discharged from services at Phoenix Counseling Center.
