Your support means everything.

We are guided by the vision of Eleanor Roosevelt

“Where do human rights begin? In Small places, close to home – so close that they cannot be seen on any maps. Yet, they are the world of the individual person. Without concerned citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world. The world of the future is in our making. Tomorrow is now.”

About UVCares

UVCares is a nonprofit organization that delivers mental healthcare while addressing barriers that include access, affordability, and community outreach.

We accomplish our mission by creating access via teletherapy which clients enjoy the convenience and privacy of the approach. We remove the affordability barrier as clients are allowed to pay whatever they feel they can afford, even if they cannot afford any fees associated with their care.
Education of mental health that focuses on personal awareness of need for services as well as biases is accomplished through community outreach programs.
UVCares supports evidence-based methods of treatment, and firmly believes in the importance, parity, and interrelation of physical and mental health and that everyone deserves to be happy and healthy.

Connect with us online.

UVCares offers counseling services through teletherapy (video conferencing), which allows ease and convenience in connecting with a mental health provider.


We use secure technology to keep your personal health information private. All counseling sessions and client records are subject to the same strict HIPAA standards as in-person sessions.


Research shows that telehealth services are as effective as in-person appointments when it comes to treating mental illness. Some people find that telehealth is more helpful because they are able to attend more convenient  appointments while in the comfort of privacy.


If you have insurance, we can bill your insurance for you. Most insurance companies pay for telehealth appointments. There is no need to worry if you do not have insurance as we will accept an amount that you can afford to pay.

How to Get Started

Getting Started is Easy.

Call us direct 509-300-1113.
The intake process takes about 5 minutes. After electronically completing a few documents, you will be connected to your counselor and your first counseling session will be within one week.

Finances are Tough?
UVCares appreciates each person’s decision to take the steps to become emotionally happy and we do not want finances to be a concern. Each client will pay only what they can afford. Everyone receives the same high level of services regardless of ability to pay.

When you are ready… 
We are here. We can help.
