Healing People to Heal Our World
Welcome to Juniper Mountain Counseling
What's in a name?
Many people wonder how we arrived upon the name “Juniper Mountain Counseling.” Ironically, despite living in the high desert, which inevitably surrounds us with both juniper trees and mountains, there is no “Juniper Mountain” in this region. This allowed us to create something, which was both unique yet, very appropriate for Central Oregon. This says something valuable about the inspiration we draw from our environment and the desire we have to serve our community.
The JUNIPER is a tree that survives, adapts and thrives despite a lack of water and the harsh environment in which it lives. It is often unappreciated and discarded as worthless, despite its incredible tenacity. Long been associated with spiritual and healing, we believe the juniper symbolizes our clients and the desire we have for their healing. It is our hope that each person who comes to be served by our counselors emerges with the abilities to adapt and thrive despite the circumstances in which they live. We believe it is possible.
To us, a MOUNTAIN symbolizes the journey and challenges, which often lie ahead in our lives. Yet, there is a curious pull, a yearning to go on. A mountain offers great variety and mystery in its terrain, vegetation, and its creatures. For each of us, life is an unknown journey toward a greater summit, involving both twists and turns of exploration. Yet, once we commit ourselves to all that climb entails, we celebrate the new, unobstructed and wider perspective we see from the top.
Our mission at Juniper Mountain Counseling is to support each person’s journey, thus assisting them to gain a clearer perspective and embrace the mystery and gift of their individual life.
We are so happy to announce that we are moving to a new location later this year!
We're busting out of our current building so we're renovating a former church to be the new home of Juniper Mountain Counseling. Check back for frequent progress updates.
Our new address is 61690 Pettigrew Rd in Bend. Drive by and take a look at our progress!
