Our Story

My dream? Mental health care in its highest form. 

Our vision is a practice where the fundamental dignity and beauty of all human bodies is affirmed and embraced fully, and we're honored to be a space where you or your family member can feel safe, known and heard. This kind of mission-driven healthcare isn't always the norm in our world, so in early 2020 Nourish was birthed out of a passion for excellent, trauma informed care as well as a clear understanding that sometimes in life, we must create what we wish for. 

The word 'nourish' means 'to provide with the food or other substances necessary for growth, health, and good condition'. All too often, various barriers stand in the way of many people receiving the nourishment they need, whether on a physical level or on an emotional one. Our team helps our clients challenge these internal barriers, empowering those we serve to become better equipped to thrive and seek full health. 

As we continue to grow to serve more individuals and families, we commit to always staying centered in the values that guided our inception. We appreciate each individual who allows us the opportunity to participate in their healing journey.
