Steven WDeschutes Rim Family Health Clinic welcomes Steven Woolpert, Licensed Professional Counselor & Behavioral Health Consultant to our team.  In his own words:

I started my counseling career over 40 years ago to be of service to people wanting to make changes in their lives. Through the years I have worked with individuals dealing with alcohol & drug problems, marital & family difficulties, stress & health conditions, depression, anxiety & PTSD, plus other mental disorders. Also important is helping people gain skills & strengths to address challenges, achieve health & life goals, improve confidence & self-esteem for better quality of life.

The combination of these elements involving body, mind, and activities is now referred to as Behavioral Health. Behavioral Health focuses on what individuals do that affect all parts of life: health, work, family & relationships, thoughts & emotions, habits & interests and what skills & resources can be developed & utilized to problem solve and make positive changes towards personal goals.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor & Behavioral Health Consultant with the clinic, I assist individuals & their medical providers to address variety of difficulties involving physical &/or mental health and to help achieve agreed upon wants & goals for positive changes in a respectful manner. This is what I call whole person care, which is the heart of integrative services at the Deschutes Rim Health Clinic.

I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling from the University of Arizona and have practiced in Arizona, Oregon (Portland & Hood River), and now in Washington in a community behavioral health agency serving rural people in Klickitat Co. for over 10 years. I live in the country outside of Lyle called High Prairie, as my wife & I were drawn to the land in the Columbia Gorge area. My interests include: walks & hiking, music & art, reading & history, native plants & geology, and rivers & rafting. I volunteer as a board member of the Klickitat Trail Conservancy & co-lead hikes on the trail.

Please join us in welcoming Steven, a valuable resource as we continue to enhance our services to the people of South Wasco County.
