Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, grief, addiction, anxiety, or major life changes?

We are a licensed Mental Health Service Provider with locations in both Bridgeport and Fairmont West Virginia, and we are here to support you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.

Home: Welcome

Until further notice, we will be offering Tele-Health options. Please Inquire! Bless you all, and God bless these United States!

Personalized Attention for All Your Needs

We implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations, children issues, family or work crisis, and substance dependency. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the patient and caretaker alike. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.
