Supporting and Assisting Your Growth and Healing for a Fuller Life
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. We believe 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 it’s incredible tenacity. Further, the juniper has long been associated with both spiritual and healing purposes. 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 that 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 the creatures that inhabit it. 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 can 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 him/ her to gain a clearer perspective and embrace the mystery and gift of their individual life.
WE ARE STILL HERE FOR YOU!
Juniper Mountain Counseling is still open for both existing and new clients. We have currently moved all of our appointments to Telehealth or phone sessions, so you can remain in the comfort of your home. Our office staff is still available to answer your phone calls.
Please take care. Be Well. We care about you!
