Alcohol and other Drug Counseling – Like other therapists and psychologists, substance abuse counselors work closely with individuals and groups to identify problem behaviors and offer solutions. At Rural Nevada Counseling, our alcohol and drug counselors combine treatment and support with helping people with challenges relating to alcohol or substance misuse find their individualized pathway through recovery.

Mental Health Counseling – Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is vital at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. RNC’s mental health therapists will sit down with you, conduct a comprehensive assessment, identifying your unique challenges, and chart a mutually agreed upon treatment plan to help better support your mental health needs and assist in restoring you back to your previous healthy level of functioning.

At Rural Nevada Counseling, we offer many evidence-based interventions tailored to your specific needs and requests. RNC currently offers: EMDR, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapies (CBT, DBT, and ACT), and Solutions-Focused Brief Therapy.

RNC also has several advanced certified clinical trauma professionals (CCTP) at all of our sites. These professionals are specifically trained to help clients who may be challenged with severe trauma (PTSD, CPTSD, and other forms of trauma such as developmental and early childhood).

Couples, Marriage, and Family Counseling – Marriage counseling, also sometimes called couples therapy, is a form of psychotherapy. Marriage counseling helps couples of all types recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Family Counseling is the addition of other family members, including children, in the therapeutic healing process. At RNC, we have marriage and family therapists and clinical social workers who are trained specifically to engage and support couples and families who may need these additional supportive services.

Adolescent and Child Counseling – Child counseling focuses on young children, teens, and adolescents with one or more mental health challenges. It also provides aid to youths who have experienced trauma or are experiencing a dysfunctional or stressful home environment.
Many of the issues these children face mimicking the issues adults face in their day-to-day lives. Some of these common issues include anxiety, depression, and grief. However, the goal of child counseling is to break down problems into manageable parts so children can better understand and cope with them.
Here at Rural Nevada Counseling, our therapists engage children of all ages in various forms of play therapy so that children and adolescents can learn to identify and express these emotional parts. Reintegrating these self-identified parts back into their sense of self while learning coping skills along the way.

Veterans – Veteran’s counseling is a type of counseling that military veterans can use to adjust to the transition from military life to civilian life. RNC’s therapists are always available to help veterans and their families cope with mental health challenges, such as depression, anxiety, grief, and post-traumatic stress syndrome, while striving to reintegrate into their communities successfully.

Peer-to-Peer support – Peer support is the “process of giving and receiving encouragement and assistance to achieve long-term recovery.” Peer supporters “offer emotional support, share knowledge, teach skills, provide practical assistance, and connect people with resources, opportunities, communities of support, and other people.” RNC’s peer support specialists are highly trained support staff with lived and shared experience in both mental health and substance misuse challenges. Actively engaged in their recovery process and ready to support your needs as you engage in your pathway.

Psychosocial Rehabilitation – PSR is a treatment approach designed to help improve the lives of people with disabilities. The goal of psychosocial rehabilitation is to teach emotional, cognitive, and social skills that help those diagnosed with mental illness live and work in their communities as independently as possible.

Basic Skills Training – BST services are specific interventions designed to reduce cognitive and behavioral impairments and restore clients to their highest level of functioning. BST services are provided to recipients with age and developmentally inappropriate cognitive and behavioral skills. BST services help recipients acquire (learn) constructive cognitive and behavioral skills through positive reinforcement, modeling, operant conditioning, and other training techniques. In addition, BST services teach recipients a variety of life skills.

Targeted Case Management – TCM services ensure that all qualified individuals have someone to advocate for their needs and help them find resources within their communities to promote healthy living.
