We all want the freedom to be ourselves,

yet we are most afraid of being ourselves. 

The Nurture Play Structure (NPS) Model of Therapy arose out of our experiences with clients.  Over time, we began to realize the importance of balance in our lives.  NPS is a tool to explore this sense of balance.  By focusing on Nurture, Play, and Structure, we have found that individuals and families are better able to recognize their strengths and challenges.  They also report a better sense of who they are, what they need, and how to name these needs in relationships.  

The NPS Model of Therapy provides a tool to address anxiety, depression, self-esteem, inter- and intra- personal relationships, and other issues.   We invite you to explore this site to learn more about this model of therapy.
