Person Centered Options Counseling (PC-OC) is an interactive decision support process whereby individuals are supported in making long-term support choices in the context of their unique preferences, strengths, needs, values, and circumstances.  PC-OC is provided by professionals trained and practicing according to Virginia’s Statewide Standards and may include care coordinators, transition coordinators, peer counselors, and others.
Person-centered counseling (PCC) allows individuals to be engaged in the decision making process about their options, preferences, values, and financial resources. Individuals in need of services, or who are planning for the future, have access to one-on-one counseling in a variety of settings, including within the home, community residence, acute care hospital, school settings, or several other settings based on the individual's needs.
