Wellspring Celebrates New Ritchie County Office

Wellspring Family Services, a division of Crittenton Services, is cutting the ribbon today on a new outpatient and home-based counseling office in Harrisville, thanks to a grant provided by philosophy’s Hope & Grace Initiative.

Harrisville Mayor Alan Haught will cut the ribbon at 11:00 a.m. with an open house to follow.

The Ritchie County office, located on 2479 Ellenboro Road inside Windfall Station in Harrisville, will tie together service areas in north central West Virginia, where Wellspring has an established presence, with its Morgantown and New Martinsville offices. New service site selection was based on needs assessments and recommendations from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.

Wellspring Family Services has been helping children, families and individuals with professional counseling services for more than 30 years. Offices serve as hubs, from which trauma-focused therapists visit clients at home, in schools, and in other community settings. Because Wellspring clients are predominantly children and adolescents, the entire family is part of the therapeutic process, making home-based care a convenient and effective approach to care delivery. Wellspring currently has offices in Weirton, Wheeling, New Martinsville, Morgantown, and Parkersburg. Last year, more than 1400 clients chose Wellspring Family Services as a mental health provider.

“We are excited to become an important part of Ritchie County’s communities. We know that our master’s level clinicians will provide a much-needed service for children and families, helping them with all of their behavioral health needs. Many of our clients can be seen in the comfort of their own homes and schools,” said Beverly Petrelli, Chief Operating Officer.
