Healthy relationships take work.

TV, movies and social media may paint the picture of “happily ever after” relationships, but that’s often not the reality that people experience. At least not without a little work. 


Whether you and your partner are struggling or your family as a whole is experiencing challenges, mental health professionals at The NEST can help you identify and address areas to create meaning and lasting change.


Our goal is to help strengthen the community by helping you build healthy relationships with those that matter the most in your life. We have a team of professionals including Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists that are ready to help.

What is couples counseling?

Couples therapy is able to help you and your partner with many different situations and concerns.

Some of the situations that The NEST team is able to assist with include:

  • Premarital counseling

  • Communication struggles

  • Addiction

  • Frequent arguments

  • Stressful life changes

  • Challenges due to other mental health concerns

  • Lack of trust

  • Infidelity

  • Sexual dysfunction

  • Falling out of love

  • Divorce planning

  • Domestic violence/Abuse

  • Financial arguments

Happy Hugging Couple

There are many different challenges that come up in relationships. Having the guidance of a third-party who is experienced in how to navigate these situations helps make all the difference. 

During couples therapy, you and your partner will meet together with a licensed therapist. They will help you identify challenges and issues within your relationship. Then they will work to help you and your partner gain perspective around the situation and teach you strategies you can implement to make positive changes in your life. 

Our team of professionals understands that you and your partner aren’t just like everyone else. We’ll personalize therapy to meet the needs of your specific situation.

If you’re ready to address the concerns in your relationship, schedule an appointment so our therapists can help you gain clarity around your relationship and discover the next best steps to take.

  • Divided parenting

  • Family conflict

  • Domestic violence or abuse

During family therapy sessions, therapists will work with the group as a whole. This allows us to observe the way the family interacts together and identify the positives along with any areas that the family could benefit from addressing. With family therapy, you can learn strategies to improve your family dynamic along with the individual relationships.

Our therapists will take into account the unique qualities of your specific family to customize a treatment plan that’s the best fit for each individual.

Whether there is a trying challenge your family is facing, you want to learn how your family can thrive through difficult times or there is a disconnect between family members and you just can’t put your finger on what it is, scheduling an appointment for family therapy is the first step towards positive change.
