Jeff Nottingham, MDiv, MA, LMHC

Clinical Director

Jeff specializes in working with couples who are in the various stages and transitions of their relationship. He sees couples in every phase of their relationship-- pre-engagement; pre-marital; newlywed; parenting; blended families; divorce recovery; empty-nesting; aging, etc. Jeff also works extensively with men who want to improve in a wide variety of personal areas, such as relational, sexual, spiritual, and/or vocational.


Jeff's approach to counseling starts and stops with a Christian worldview that incorporates two main emphases: existential counseling, which deals with the basic quest of life to find significance and security, and communication skills, which deal with the basic need of life to communicate well within our significant relationships. His professional but empathetic perspective raises questions and answers for his clients to work through with him and also with other trusted people in their lives.


Jeff received his MDiv and MA from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO, in 2012; he has been counseling in Indianapolis since then.

Jason Pogue, MDiv, MA

Counselor, Teaching and Development Specialist

"Even under the best circumstances the world we live in can deliver us painful and confusing realities that we would not have chosen ourselves. When the people we love betray us, those in authority use it against us, and our minds and bodies seem to imprison us we often find ourselves stuck in places where we feel empty, overwhelmed, and hopeless."


"Wherever you are, I would be honored to join you there and walk alongside you toward a more life-giving place. Though the pain is incredibly real, so is the possibility of a more full and satisfying life."
