Counseling is also available for families, children and teens and even for nutritional guidance.

“This is a beautiful space, it’s all new and fresh and we have plenty of room to expand. So that’s super nice. But I know for me personally, it”s just a big step towards my goals and dreams of bringing down the divorce rate in the Four State area,” said Joy Parkman, Marriage & Family Counselor.

“I primarily work with kids and teens and young adults. And so my goal is to be able to bring a holistic perspective of being able to work with kids through art through music through play. When kids have gone through something and teens and everybody have gone through something very tragic and difficult, sometimes it’s hard to put words to express how they’re feeling. So play is a child’s language,” said Teresa Berry, Child Counselor & Therapist.

The center will officially start providing services on Monday.
