About Us

The Nest Family Counseling Center, the Behavioral Health Division of Davie County Public Health Department, provides mental health and behavioral health services to children, adolescents, and their caregivers who are residents of Davie County.  The Nest Family Counseling Center offers an array of services and has expertise in meeting the specific needs of children and adolescents. Monitoring clinical outcomes is vital to success in the treatment of children/adolescents and insures the quality of our programs. Services are provided in an office setting, schools, home, and community. We are excited to be the first clinical team in Davie County to bring Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, TF-CBT, as the "gold" standard for the treatment of trauma related disorders of children and adolescents through staff members who are trained and rostered through the rigorous NC Child Treatment Program


We understand the process of selecting counseling is for many one that takes much courage and time.  From our name to our intake process; we are here to assist.  Our friendly and helpful office staff are able to answer many of your questions whether payment related or general office hours.  Our highly skilled and family centered clinical staff include a licensed clinical social worker and licensed professional counselors who have expertise in working with children and families.  We also have access through referral process to Psychiatric medication management services and are working toward having our own on site psychiatrist.  Our staff receive ongoing training in cultural awareness, crisis intervention, and evidence-based practices.

Treatment Approach

Person Centered Planning plays a significant role is developing a treatment plan. Clients are actively involved in identifying goals for treatment. Additionally, any and all natural supports which the consumer desires to be involved in this planning process may have input.  

The Nest Family Counseling Center also utilizes additional family clinical assessment tools to identify strengths, areas requiring improvement, and the dynamics of the family.  Our Comprehensive Clinical Assessments are the entry point where we gain valuable information about your family's needs and strengths and develop a treatment plan tailored to the goals you wish to achieve during out work together.  

In addition to individual and family sessions, we offer a variety of brief and ongoing groups for our clients.  With the input of our clients we offer groups and educational training to meet the unique needs of our community.  As we grow and further assess the needs of our community, we will add additional models to fill identified gaps.
