Gary and Jamie Wagner have been in the helping profession throughout their careers. Their journey led them to develop a counseling agency to foster hope, positive emotional health, and healthy relationships for the individuals and families served. They strive to provide an atmosphere of warmth and acceptance while also offering therapeutic services that are developmentally appropriate for children and adolescents, family-focused to increase healthier interactions between family members, and individually tailored to meet the unique needs of each person seeking counseling services.
