Alliance Counseling Center Updates
With the season changing, it is opening up more nature based therapeutic opportunities! We now get to see how the land is letting go of the fruitful summer and prepare for the winter. This also opens the possibility for enjoying fires, and maybe even making s'mores!

Alliance Counseling Center continues to grow and adapt to community needs. We maintain our partnership with Canby Medical Health to be an integrated behavioral and medical health program.

Some of the offered 6 week groups include:
(must be an established client to be able to attend) 
***Parenting of Children and Adolescents Group
***Parents with Young Children Group
***Adult Trauma Group
***Adult Mindfulness Group
***Women and Horses Group
***Anger Management Group (ages 8-12)
***Self Expression Group (ages 13-17)
***Young Child Group (ages 1-9)
***Girls Group (ages 10-12)
***Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Teens Group

We also offer Early Childhood Services, Occupational Therapy, and skills training.

Alliance Counseling Center is currently contracted as an in-network provider with certain plans of the Oregon Health Plan and are considered an out-of-network provider for commercial insurance plans.

Journey Wellness Updates
Journey Wellness, our non-clinical program, continues to grow and expand! All offered events are available to anyone, regardless if they are currently a client at Alliance Counseling Center or not. We aim to provide individual experiences, community building activities, and professional growth opportunities.

The purpose of Journey Wellness is to allow more people to enjoy the healing benefits of being at the farm without needing to be a mental health client. 

We aim to be creative in our approach and flexible with programming. And soon we hope to be offering CEU opportunities!

We are also able to create specialized retreats or ceremonies (e.g. hope ceremonies, coming of age ceremonies, transition ceremonies) for your family/friends or business.

Staff Spotlight: Angela Helwig
Angela Helwig
Angela Helwig is an Occupational Therapist at The Center at Heron Hill for over a year. She is a licensed Occupational Therapy, SIPT Certification (Sensory Integration Praxis Test), and recently certified in the Fundamentals of Natural Lifemanship. She has spent the past 20 years working as an OT in a variety of settings and with clients facing different issues. Previously worked at CDRC at OHSU for the past 17 years with a focus on evaluation and treatment of children, young adults, and families dealing with a variety child development and neurological challenges. 
"When we exist only in the synthetic world, we struggle to slow down enough to listen to our bodies. I think that nature based Occupational Therapy really helps people with processing sensory information and regulation. Nature is slower and a more approachable setting that allows for more creativity and movement.  I also love teaching families how to be engaged in nature, such as a hike, and make it therapeutic for everybody."
Inspiration From a Client
"In our busy world, it's hard to take time to slow down and listen to yourself. But, when I go to Heron Hill, I feel like I can step out of my busy life and reflect within the comforts of nature. Mindfulness takes daily practice and Heron Hill provides a rich, nourishing environment to be one with nature. Each visit I find new and more insightful opportunities to better myself."
