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

Rosemarie M. Ansel, MSW, CHC, Executive Director

All five 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 Medical Center 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 use issues are treated.

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 School-based Therapy, the Children’s Behavioral Health Initiative, Substance Use services, and CONCERN Employee Assistance Program. It’s intended to be a resource for prospective clients, families, behavioral healthcare providers, community partners and policy makers. 

Thank you for visiting our website.
