The Counseling & Victims' Services Program (CVS) provides counseling services to victims of crime, members of our community and approved justice-involved individuals on supervision in the county.
All counseling services are free of charge.
CVS is able to assist with a variety of issues including recovering from crime victimization, coping with intimate partner abuse, building healthier relationships, managing stress and anxiety, career and work goals, and healing from abuse and trauma.
CVS counselors are masters-level students working towards their graduate degrees in Counseling and offer:
- Individual Counseling
- Couples Counseling*
- Family Counseling*
- Group Counseling (as available)
When a request falls outside of the scope or abilities of CVS (for example, severe mental illness, medication needs, etc.) every effort will be made to connect people to other local services that are better suited to help meet their needs.
To request counseling services, please call our CVS main line at 503-846-3020. Due to current volume of requests for counseling, it may take up to 2-3 weeks before you are contacted for an appointment.
You can also email CVS’s confidential Self Referral Form to Sarah Baker.
Or fax to 503-846-3040, "Attention: Counseling Intake".
Forms can also be mailed to:
