Consultations & Workshops for  Families & Schools

Being part of a community is hard.

There are many different personalities, ways of thinking, and ways of approaching challenges.

You see that things could be better, yet you aren’t sure how to make change. There’s a strong desire to dive deep into how to help your community become stronger and more connected.

Families and schools are systems, and systems need ongoing reflection, exploration, feedback, and action to continue functioning at a high level. Nexus Counseling Services engages families and support organizations, schools, and community collaborations to deepen their family and community engagement practices.


A family is a system. Each family member is an individual and has a distinct personality and role in that system. Many families struggle with healthy communication due to differing opinions about their roles. Parents may see a child’s role one way, but the child may disagree with what they are told. We aren’t taught how to handle family challenges lovingly and respectfully.

The most common goals for families are improving communication, solving family problems, understanding and handling special family situations, and creating a better-functioning home environment.

We offer consultations and workshops on the following topics:

  • Creating a safe and healthy home environment
  • Healthy communication skills
  • Family problem solving
  • Parenting
  • Relational patterns
  • Child development


Nexus Counseling Services comprises people with a history of working in and with a diverse array of schools. We believe that the foundation of a high-functioning school is a safe and supportive school climate where each person feels like an important part of the community.

We will collaborate with your staff and teachers to develop a school climate. We provide training and consultation to deepen understanding of the human experience within the school walls, engage families and communities, and provide consultation services related to mental health.

We offer consultations and workshops on the following topics:

  • Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)
  • Trauma-informed schools
  • Student mental health
  • Working with students who present challenging behaviors
  • Creating relationships with families and community

The clinicians of Nexus Counseling Services are trained to understand family systems and are all parents. We know how hard it can be to establish and maintain healthy family interactions. We also understand how much you want your family to be the best it can be.
