A message from the Valparaiso Office Director:

Hello and welcome to the Pillars of Wellness Valparaiso office! Our Valparaiso team is thrilled to be able to serve our community in Valparaiso, IN and surrounding areas. As the Director of the Valparaiso team, I am honored to be entrusted with supporting this wonderful team.

Pillars truly believes meeting the needs of our clinicians will allow our clinicians to best meet the needs of our clients. As the Valpo Director, my top priority is to connect with our team to ensure our clinicians are feeling happy and supported in their roles. I also hope we can continue to find strengths and passion areas for our clinicians in order to provide them with additional learning and career growth opportunities. Additionally, Pillars offers a lot of additional support to our clinicians who may be struggling with more challenging cases through various group supervisions as well as weekly individual supervisions for our provisionally licensed clinicians.

As we continue to prioritize the satisfaction and growth of our clinicians, this means we can continue to provide excellent care to our clients. We have a growing team of clinicians with diverse backgrounds and speciality areas so we can best serve the diverse needs of our community. Our team  is experienced in supporting clients through a wide range of mental health journeys. During the intake process, we are gathering information regarding the needs and preferences of our clients, allowing our team to determine who would be the best fit for each client.

While our office is conveniently located, we are in a more secluded area, offering privacy to those who want it. Our offices have all been carefully arranged to be cozy and comfortable spaces while avoiding as much sensory distraction as possible. Our hope is to create environments in which all of our clients feel comfortable and safe while navigating potentially heavy therapy topics.

Whether you are a clinician searching for your new therapy home or a client ready to start or continue your mental health journey, please reach out! We are excited and ready to walk with you during this next journey in your life.
