Our Mission

Nurturing Connections Counseling was established with the purpose of supporting individuals, couples, and families who are faced with challenging situations that often contribute to psychological and emotional distress in their lives. As professionals in the mental health field, we provide evidence-based approaches to elicit change from unhealthy patterns of behavior towards healthy coping strategies with effective communication skills. Every client is provided a safe environment to express their thoughts and emotions with acceptance and no judgment.

At Nurturing Connections Counseling, a primary focus of ours is to strengthen romantic relationship bonds and increase emotional connections by utilizing the Gottman Method, which assists in healing and recovery. In addition, the importance of pre-marital counseling is recognized, therefore we provide the SYMBIS (Save Your Marriage Before It Starts) assessment to identify various aspects of a couple’s relationship including communication, finances, role expectations, and other areas of importance.

As a Faith based counseling center, we offer Christian perspective and integration in sessions upon request.

Counseling Options


There are times that we feel alone, focusing on one day at a time, and  find ourselves frustrated with the slow progression of our life. Nurturing Connections provides individual counseling for those who experience anxiety, depression, loneliness, and feeling "stuck" in life. You are NOT alone and taking the first step to contacting a professional counselor shows courage. We are here to support you along your journey every step of the way.

Couple’s Counseling

Do you want to feel closer to your partner? Do you and your partner struggle with communication? Are you noticing disconnect, distrust, or dealing with an affair? We specialize in couple's counseling by providing effective strategies and tools that address these questions. We aim to bring your relationship back to the way it was when you first fell in love. Marriage CAN be happy and healthy, we are prepared to help you get there.

Christian Counseling

Nurturing Connections offers an optional biblical approach by utilizing passages, parables, and scriptures to support individuals, couples, and families in navigating through difficult periods of their life. We are here to walk alongside you, remind you that you are not alone, and be the extra helping hand you need. Christian Counseling is provided upon client’s specific request, ensuring sensitivity when discussing spiritual and religious beliefs.
