About Us

Bridge Counseling and Wellness was founded in January of 2015 by Nicole Sartini and Jennifer "Juniper" Owens. In 2014, the two therapists met and bonded over their passion for mental health and their shared use of mindfulness, movement, and nutrition for managing their own mental health and in their work with clients. At that time, there were no counseling practices we could find that offered these elements as a regular part of their services. A vision for a new kind of therapy practice emerged, one that honored a person's whole self and utilized the knowledge that the mind, body, and spirit are inherently interconnected. They hired their first clinician, Megan and rented a room next to their small shared office in the Heyburn Building on Broadway, continuing to offer free yoga and exercise classes, and a meditation group for all clients. Juniper and Nicole received feedback from colleagues that perhaps adding these elements to their practice was not appropriate. In response, they delved into research to ensure they were practicing ethically and to demonstrate why they believed mindfulness, movement, and nutrition were beneficial additions. This research led to the creation of a semester-long training program for integrative mental health professionals that is board-approved. Almost ten years later, Bridge has a team of 60 spread out among four brick-and-mortar locations, all trained in this signature program. We continue to offer free yoga and meditation groups and have added countless other integrative services. We also started a second company, the Academy of Integrative Mental Health, a training hub for mental health professionals, the Conscious Mental Health podcast for clinicians, and have found ways to serve our community beyond our wildest dreams while still honoring and respecting ourselves and our team. We could not have done this without the incredible professionals who share our mission and choose to show up fully to this work, or the people who choose to make use of the services we have poured our hearts and souls into. THANK YOU so very much for helping make Bridge what it is today.
