How long have you been doing this?

Chaplaincy Behavioral Health evolved from a community need for an integrated service of spiritual care and mental health services in the early 1970s, beginning with pastoral counseling.

In the late 1990s it pioneered counseling services to people with HIV/AIDS through the Ryan White Fund. It grew to become a training center for psychology interns and grief recovery until 2005. After a break, The Chaplaincy once again responded to the need for behavioral health as mental health services shrank and the Tri-City population grew.

In 2012, Medical Family Therapy was launched to provide collaborative, medically informed counseling services with primary health care. We have grown to meet the demand and now provide a range of services to meet the need for counseling services across all ages with an emphasis on helping people manage the two things that matter most –their quality of life and their relationships.
