SERENITY BEGINNINGS

Our Story

Nicole started Serenity Wellness and Counseling Center with a vision to help empower people to heal and change from the inside out. Through our own struggles we have come to acknowledge that change does not come from just one source, but the ability to learn and grow through multiple avenues. This is why it was important to us to build a center that allowed our clients to heal through evidenced based therapies, nutrition, micro neurofeedback, yoga, and mindfulness. It is our passion to help each individual heal with a treatment plan to fit all your needs so you have the potential for the best possible outcome.

VISION AND MISSION

Our Mission.

We all strive for a path that will lead us to the kind of life that will bring us joy. However, there are times in our lives that the path moves us off course and into some dark places. Whether you are stuck in anxiety, depression, stress, anger, trauma, relationships, identity, difficult memories, or food, it is possible to get out of these dark places and back into the joy of life. Take a deep breath, you have taken the first step to an overall better self, and we are here for you and ready to help.

At Serenity Wellness & Counseling Center we will work with you to help develop the knowledge and skills you need to get back on the path of happiness and success. Together, we will work to address the issues you are facing, to create a new way of thinking, with the confidence to take on a new direction. We will work with you to uncover underlying causes and support you in changing the behaviors and thought patterns that are keeping you from being the person you were meant to be.

We are dedicated to providing our clients with a safe and comfortable environment that goes beyond just providing relief, but also providing our clients with the knowledge needed to create a long-lasting positive change. We offer the opportunity to speak with a counselor that specializes in evidenced based therapy, a nutritionist, a licensed chemical dependency counselor, a licensed family and marriage counselor, yoga/meditation instructors, a trained micro neurofeedback therapist, and several trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing. It is our goal to provide an overall balanced change.

Our team of highly qualified professionals specializes in a number of different areas. Each counselor, instructor, dietitian, and nutritionist has an area of specialization from which they practice. Through specialization training our therapists and professionals are able to provide you with a more unique individualized plan so you can receive higher quality care with quicker results. As you reach out to one of our team members, we will match you with a therapist or program specialists tailored to your needs. We want to ensure that, not only does the team member’s approach match your needs, but also their style and personality fit with your unique style.

Start your new path to positive changes today!
