Mental Health:

  • Individual
  • Couple

We believe that human nature in its many forms is always evolving and if we are able to harness and lean into this change and learn to grow in healthy ways we can become our best selves.  We seek to build a positive therapeutic relationship with all individuals to better comprehend the problems that they may be dealing with in their lives and attempt to assist them in finding healthy resolutions. 

We use an eclectic approach so that we can meet each individual where they are on their own personal path of life.  We lean heavily on the cognitive-behavioral theory for its distinction between behaviors and thoughts and the narrative theory for its explanation of how we all use stories to interpret our lives. 

We create a personalized working theory for each individual to better integrate the most appropriate techniques to achieve their goals.  We see our role as one of facilitations and guide to assist the individual in finding where it is they need to go to fix their own problems.  We believe the counselor should encourage the growth of each individual, while providing a safe and confidential space for them to explore the unhealthy thinking and irrational beliefs that underpin their issues. 

This is the most popular appointment and can be scheduled one at a time or in an on-going weekly or bi-monthly fashion. You can schedule your mental health appointment with our counselors Léa or Jessica.

This appointment is geared towards couples who would like to deal with their issues together. We all sit down for an hour and can discuss any concerns.

DUII/Substance Use:

  • Education
  • Process
  • EOP
  • DMV

The DUI education program at NWT, Stages of Change, has been created to meet all the Oregon State requirements for both DUI Diversions and Convictions.  Our Education Program is a weekly 2-hour group that covers a variety of issues and topics. Individuals are encouraged to engage with the material presented as the counselors use Socratic Questions and different learning modalities to individualize the topics.  Some topics covered are: The History of Alcohol & Drugs: How it Impacts Our Lives Today, Laws in Oregon (& Other Locations), and Treatment From The Otherside (Point of View of Police, PO’s, ADES). 

The Process group is a weekly 2-hour group that allows individuals the time and space to contemplate their use and how it has impacted their lives.  The groups can vary in size and topics covered. Individuals have participated in a treatment review with their counselor to self-select the homework assignments that will then be shared in Process group.  The length of time for this program can vary wildly based on each individual’s case but it is common to last at least twelve weeks. This gives the necessary time for people to start thinking about the changes they want to make to improve their lives. 

The Enhanced Outpatient Program (EOP) at NWT is designed to assist those individuals who need additional support within their recovery process. There can be challenges beyond what is easily handled by an individual when dealing with addiction, our hope is that the NWT EOP program will ease these challenges.  The length of time for the program may vary due to individual circumstances and individual progress through the program but the groups occur twice a week. This program serves as an aid to give you greater awareness about addiction and how it might apply to you. Hopefully, you will find the program insightful, challenging and fun.  At the end of your EOP program you will schedule an appointment to review your progress.

NWT offers a program for individuals to get their DMV Certificates which allows them to get their Oregon state driver's license reinstated.  This program starts with an Intake Assessment to determine the individualized program for each person and the length that will be required.
