We aim to treat the whole you
Our caring providers know it’s not just exams, lab results and anatomy; it’s about how you feel. Your thoughts, feelings and behaviors affect your health and daily functioning.
Mental and physical health are linked
Your physical health is guided by your beliefs and choices, whether you’re sick, suffering with chronic pain, dealing with weight issues, diabetes or substance use. Your body can even be affected by past traumas and experiences.
Understanding the link between physical health and mental well-being is vital to long-term good health. That’s why WFMC Health integrates mental health services into our primary care practice. Our medical and mental health providers work together as a team to give you comprehensive, whole person care.
When you’re a WFMC Health patient, you can talk to our behavioral and mental health team.
This coronavirus is scary, telemedicine can help
The COVID-19 pandemic can be scary, frustrating, and lonely. These feelings can lead to anxiety, depression, and stress. We’re here to provide support through these difficult times. Our mental health providers are available to you via telemedicine.
Schedule an appointment to talk with a therapist over video or by telephone. Our staff will set it up and it will be confidential and private. Please call the clinic at (503)585-6388 to schedule an appointment with one of our therapists.
** Mental Health providers use a different telemedicine platform from our medical providers. They will help get you connected before your appointment.

It can be tough to know where to turn
Our therapists offer a wide range of services, from brief check-ins during medical visits to ongoing weekly therapy. Often people find talking to a supportive and attentive therapist in a private setting can lead to improved mood, increased life satisfaction, and improved relationships over time.
As a parent, you may be dealing with issues with your children—from tantrums, anger or hyperactivity to unexplained stomach pain. Our therapists can work with you to address your concerns and help your child move forward.
Get the best possible care whenever you need it
Talk to our team of supportive and proactive mental and behavioral health professionals. We’re here to give you help when you need it, in a place where you’re already comfortable. Whether you’re facing medical, emotional, social or environmental concerns, we’ll help you face it.
Our team includes Behavioral Health Providers (BHP) and Mental Health Therapists (MHT).
Behavioral Health Providers work closely with your medical team, providing consultation and short-term behavioral health treatment. MHTs focus on traditional mental health therapies, including longer term treatment. We will help you determine if BHP or MHT treatment is the best fit for you.
Many medical problems have links to our thoughts and behaviors. Working with a Behavioral Health Provider (BHP) can help you learn about these links and how to improve your medical conditions.
Studies show our minds and bodies are closely linked. Do you feel tired, overwhelmed or distracted? If you’re not eating or sleeping well, you’re likely to be irritable, anxious or sad. Those are times you may want to get additional support.
Our experienced therapists will listen, offer practical advice and help with behavioral strategies which go hand-in-hand with your medical care. Consultations with a BHP can happen during your primary care provider (PCP) appointment or one-on-one with a BHP afterwards.
If you would like additional support with your medical issues and want to see your Behavioral Health Provider, ask your Medical Assistant or Medical Provider during your appointment.
