As part of your care team, SMC’s Licensed Counseling staff is ready to provide support and encouragement as well as the tools to navigate the psychological, emotional and social challenges that sometimes make “living well” difficult. We welcome individuals, parents, families, adolescents, and children.
On staff we have Dr. Jewkes, Board Certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, and a member of the American Psychiatric Association. Appointments with Dr. Jewkes need to be made through a referral from the patient’s primary care physician at Shingletown Medical Center.
Colleen Cambra and Patty Gomez-Gillard are our Licensed Clinical Social Workers. They are here to assist patients with medical and behavioral health problems. They provide skilled training through psycho-education and patient education strategies and help to develop specific behavioral change plans for patients.
Shingletown Medical Center also offers school base counseling services at Black Butte School. These services include working with children to improve relationships, self-esteem and overall emotional functioning. We work with students on skill building strategies that will promote effective decision making and problem solving skills as well as provide tools for positive change.
