Welcome to River Valley Counseling Center

 

Thank you for your Rosemarie Anselinterest in River Valley Counseling Center where clients are active participants in their treatment.  

All of us encounter serious emotional challenges – a teen in crisis, an episode of depression, stressful environments at home or work, dealing with serious physical illness, living with a chronic mental illness.  We provide assistance.  We help thousands of people each year and have since 1953 when we began supporting individuals, families and communities in the greater Holyoke/Chicopee/Springfield area. 

All three of our community outpatient clinics have a team of experienced, licensed mental health clinicians and psychiatrists who provide client-centered treatment to individuals, couples and families. Group psychotherapy is also available for particular issues such as anger management, parenting and trauma.  At RVCC, staff work with you to determine your plan of intervention.

RVCC is a member of Valley Health Systems and became affiliated with Holyoke Hospital in 1986. This relationship allows our clients access to the most comprehensive behavioral health continuum of care in Western MA.  The hospital provides one of the best inpatient psychiatric units in the Pioneer Valley associated with a step down model of care where both behavioral and substance abuse issues are treated. 

River Valley Counseling Center’s Day Treatment program is a key component of the behavioral health continuum of care. This program provides multi-disciplinary intensive care to people who are experiencing an unstable or acute phase of their illness but do not require in-patient care.  This strength-based, goal-driven treatment option is focused on reclaiming positive functioning and capabilities in a supportive environment six hours a day, Monday through Friday. 

This website is a resource to describe other important services available at River Valley Counseling Center such as the HIV/AIDS Project, School Based Health Centers and our Employee Assistance Program.  It’s intended to be a resource for prospective clients, families, behavioral healthcare providers, community partners and policy makers. 

You are invited to call our Central Intake Department at (413) 540 1234 for more information or to schedule an appointment.  You may call (413) 540-1160 if you are interested in employment or wish to consider making a contribution. 

Thank you for visiting our website.

Sincerely,

Rosemarie M. Ansel, MSW, CHC

Executive Director
