Real Options for Real People

Stay-at-home Order update / COVID -19 update, March 23, 2020, 7:27 PM


As designated by the Gov. Jay Inslee, behavioral health workers are considered a part of the “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” and as such can continue provide services to the public. Alternative Counseling Kent remains open and fully operational, we keep providing services, while taking all possible precautions, including thorough sanitizing, taking visitors’ temperature, etc. There was no reduction in the number of groups offered during the week, or in hours of operation. 

Teleservices are available: some procedures, including individual sessions, might be done over the phone. Call the office for scheduling.

We understand the financial problems many of our clients might have found ourselves in and are open to revising payment plans. Don’t stop attending for financial reasons, we are all in this together, your recovery is important to us.

As always, please maintain social distance, wash your hands properly, stay home if you have any symptoms and stay calm. Our hope is for all of you and your families to remain safe and healthy.

For non-scheduling related questions you can email at [email protected]

Alternative Counseling

Our goal at Alternative Counseling is to provide a variety of quality treatment services at reasonable rates. We understand that people suffer from a wide variety of self-destructive behaviors and that each person is unique with unique treatment needs. At Alternative Counseling, we strive to provide the latest in evidence-based treatment options. Our professional staff constantly strives to find what works best for each individual and to treat everyone with respect and compassion. We believe behavior is learned, and behaviors learned can be modified or changed. We offer flexible scheduling with evening and weekend appointments and provide help with additional resources such as community self-help programs and other referrals.
