    Connection and Caring in a Safe Place

    We Are Glad You're Here.

    Are you feeling isolated, lost, or alone? Do you feel disconnected from God, yourself, and others?

    Is there hurt that you just can’t seem to find healing with and it affects your important relationships?

    Do you suffer with emotional overwhelm or hide your true self in order to just survive?

    Have you tried to solve life’s problems on your own and realize you need help from someone else?

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are in the right place. We know seeking help can be hard. Our compassionate and caring counselors are here for you and with you.

    You are created for connection and your heart yearns for healthy, authentic, and loving relationships. We wholeheartedly believe and research shows that the quality of your relationships determines the direction of your life and overall well-being. Our team is dedicated to helping you (re)connect, heal, grow, and thrive in relationships and in life.

    You will find a safe space to tell your story, connect with your emotions, face hurts, and experience healing. At your leading, we will integrate our skilled therapeutic approach with our shared Christian worldview.

    Christy Birgen, M.A., LPC, LMFT; Owner/Clinical Director

    My approach to therapy is grounded in the emotional human experience, with a Christian framework. My style combines the science of attachment theory, the power of emotion as a change agent, and integration of psychological, social, and spiritual dimensions. I view counseling as a safe place of acceptance and compassion where client and therapist work together to bring the client back to their personal place of hope and well-being.

    Cara Charanza, LMFT-Associate

    My approach to counseling is systemic and grounded in attachment theory, a Christian worldview, and the power of emotions that serve as our compass. I believe each person is unique, created by God, highly valued, and can overcome hardships, pain, and despair. I explore how thoughts, beliefs, and emotions impact personal well-being and the health of relationships. To understand where we are going, we need to know how we arrived at this crossroads. Change begins through the therapeutic relationship built on trust, acceptance, honesty, and emotional connection.

    Abi Bryant, Graduate Student Counselor

    My approach to therapy pulls from systemic and person-centered approaches to therapy, with a Christian background. I believe that each person was created in a unique and individual way by God, and our experiences through family, community, and relationships shapes who we are. I view therapy as a safe and comfortable environment in which the client and therapist work towards peace and hope.

    Our Values


    Our counselors are Christians and hold a biblical worldview. This shapes how we see human beings and relationships.

    Our office is a place of safety and non-judgement where you will feel heard and understood. It is is essential for our clients to feel comfortable to share whatever is needed. Healing can only take place in the presence of light.  


    Being human means times of pain and suffering. We will be present with you and you will know that you are not alone. Together we can help you find your way back to your place of well-being. 


    As you set aside time to do the hard work of counseling, we understand that things are shared in our time together that are personal and perhaps have never been spoken of before. Counseling is a sacred space. You can be assured that what you share is kept private and confidential.
