Compassionate Care

Our priority is providing the best in therapeutic care while welcoming all with compassion, understanding and hospitality.



We take your privacy very seriously. The conversations you have with your therapist are kept confidential with few exceptions. Review our Privacy Policy for more information.


As a non-profit organization, we have several affordable tracks to help you manage the cost of counseling. See Rates & Insurance for more info.

Heart, soul & relational care.

Here when you need us.

Life changes without warning. Sometimes you need more than a friend to help you work through a tough issue.  Trained professionals can guide you through important life decisions, support you as you navigate challenging relationships, and help you discover your own resiliency in the face of adversity. And sometimes, you just need the confidence of knowing you are working with a professional.


We have services for children as young as 3 all the way through young adulthood including a specially designed therapy room conducive to play therapy and the needs of children.


In addition to counseling, we offer psychological assessments, career guidance, spiritual direction, and workshops that educate and equip participants with life skills.


Our services for families include parenting support and training, divorce support, conflict resolution, blended family counseling, and grief support.


Our Pre-Marriage and Couple Communication workshops are designed to support couples in various seasons of life.  Many of our therapists specialize in the support of relationships, couples and marriage.

We welcome you

and look forward to serving you!

We hope you will find our office space to be safe, inviting and comfortable.  If you have never visited our offices, we invite you to take a tour.

We’re hiring!
