School-Based Therapy Services

River Valley Counseling Center partners with local school districts to provide mental health counseling during the school day. The program provides families with access to therapy by removing barriers such as long waitlists, transportation, insurance coverage problems, and scheduling conflicts. 

RVCC therapists provide individual sessions and family consultations for referred students who are experiencing a range of difficulties including:

  • anxiety
  • sadness
  • adjustment problems
  • emotion regulation difficulties
  • trauma
  • disruptive behavior
  • inattention and hyperactivity
  • failing grades
  • social problems
  • bullying
  • attachment problems
  • self-harm
  • substance use

Our therapists are also able to support school-specific emotional and behavioral needs, consulting with teachers and administrators on site.

RVCC School-based Therapy services are available throughout Holyoke, Chicopee, Easthampton, and Granby school districts as well as select schools in Springfield, Hadley, and Hatfield.
