Why Fresh Start Therapy and Wellness?
Our Mission: Fresh Start Therapy and Wellness, LLC seeks to empower individuals, couples, and families to embrace their value and purpose through a caring and honest approach.
At Fresh Start Therapy and Wellness, LLC, we want each individual and couple to know they matter and that they are seen. Mental health therapy provides an opportunity for support and fresh perspectives, assistance in bridging the gap from where someone is to where he or she wants to be. Life can get better!
We were not meant to do life alone. We need each other. Research confirms this. Let a clinician or coach come alongside you individually in your new beginning. Maybe you need help connecting with your significant other. Maybe the individual needs to heal old wounds. Whatever the need may be, we at Fresh Start want to help empower each person and infuse hope.
Fresh Start also offers Christian counseling to those who want to approach mental health therapy with a faith-based approach; however, anyone is welcome and can forgo a faith-based approach if desired. We simply recognize that faith for many is a critical part of the journey and gives them the fresh start they need.

Serving married and non-married couples
In any relationship, there may come a time when two people hit an impasse. The problem looms like a colossal mountain. Let a clinician help you learn to communicate, care, and convey what is need to get to the other side. Most sessions will be joint, but at times the clinician may decide an individual session is needed. These are used only when necessary to preserve the focus on the client: the couple's relationship. The clinician may suggest that each person may also benefit from seeing an individual therapist if the situation is especially complex.
