INTEGRATIVE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
"Your present circumstances do not determine where you can go, they merely determine where you start." - Nido Qubein
What is holistic wellness and how is it related to mental health?
Psychological well-being is shaped by multiple inter-related systems (medical, psychological, social, psychiatric, behavioral, lifestyle, spiritual, etc). Clinicians trained to understand and work within multiple systems have a better chance for a global understanding of the issues affecting you, a better chance for developing and implementing a multi-system plan to address these issues and ultimately, a better chance of helping you to make lasting changes.
It is the unique combination of our specific genetic makeup and cumulative life experiences that determines how each of us perceive and relate to the world around us. Our highly trained clinicians are committed to remaining unbiased and nonjudgmental in all interactions with our clients. YOU are the most essential part of therapy, in fact, the direction of therapy will be guided by you... the client!
While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life and we can make sure that your body has what it needs to function maximally so that you are feeling well enough to appreciate the beauty which already exists in yourself and your life. Wellness is achieved through self-empowerment, effective communication skills, emotional regulation, tolerance for negative emotions, healthy relationships, integrity of spirit, mind & body, and capacity for peace & joy.
