Covington County Hospital announces the opening of Covington Place: Therapy & Counseling in Collins, providing essential mental health support for the community. Covington Place offers a range of therapeutic services designed to help individuals, couples, and families cope with a variety of mental health issues.
Offices for the new service opened last week at 1207 South Fir Avenue, in the former Collins Nursing Center building next to Roses.
Covington Place is staffed by licensed professional mental health counselors (LPCs) with extensive experience providing compassionate and effective care. They use evidence-based therapeutic techniques to help clients address their specific needs and achieve their goals.
Holly Reeves, LPC, specializes in individual and group counseling with children, adolescents, and young adults. Danni Robin works with geriatrics, adults, juveniles, and couples.
"Mental health is a critical aspect of overall wellness, and we are committed to helping our patients improve their emotional and psychological well-being," said Reeves.
Anyone may refer a patient, including clinics, physicians, emergency departments, and inpatient facilities, or an individual may call for an appointment. The patients served will range from children as young as six to pre-teens, teens, and adults.
The therapists work closely with patients to develop personalized treatment plans that meet their needs and goals. Covington Place will provide individualized interventions and treatment for mental and behavioral health issues such as depression, ADHD, anger management, anxiety and bipolar disorder, marriage and family relationship difficulties, schizophrenia, and substance use and alcohol abuse.
"We believe that everyone deserves to have access to quality mental health care, and we are committed to making our services accessible to as many people as possible," said Santana Fulcher, Program Director. "Our goal is to empower our clients to live happier, healthier lives."
This new service is funded as the result of a two-million-dollar grant awarded to CCH together with partners Covington County School District, Covington County Sheriff's Office, and Sustaining Grace Recovery Ministries by the Health Resources and Services Administration. The purpose is to increase access to mental health services for Covington County residents and surrounding areas.
Covington Place accepts a variety of insurance plans, including Medicaid. For those without insurance, a sliding scale fee will be assessed.
Covington Place is now accepting new patients. For a free, confidential consultation and to learn more about the services offered and schedule an appointment, please visit covingtoncountyhospital.com/covingtonplace or call 601-698-0263.
