About Us!

The Bridge Wellness Center provides comprehensive therapeutic intervention and complimentary holistic services all in one convenient location. Bridge started as a small, private counseling practice with a long history of serving the mental health needs of our community. While continuing to provide individual group, family, and couples counseling, the practice has evolved to include a variety of holistic treatments to compliment traditional mental health intervention. We aim to support the unique needs of each individual, offering a client centered approach to facilitate the healing of mind, body, and spirit.
