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 and 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 assess-ments, career guidance, spiritual direction, and workshops that educate and equip participants with life skills.



Our services for families include parenting training, divorce support, 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.
