Safe and effective holistic counseling and healing practices for individuals, couples, and families
We are sometimes called to face situations that make us feel anxious, lonely, frustrated, or afraid. In order to deal with these situations we’re forced to change, and any change is unsettling because we must step into the unknown. Change can also create issues in our families and personal relationships, in our work, in our sense of simply being able to move forward in life. Regardless of its cause, there is always a reason for a life challenge. Wholebeing Wellness tools can help you understand and work through whatever life presents.
Wholebeing Wellness is more than just a counseling practice. It’s actually a lifestyle with roots in Transpersonal Psychology, a philosophy that strengthens the connection between body, mind, and spirit to help you achieve optimal emotional and physical health and wellbeing. Empathic listening and person-centered therapy create an atmosphere of trust and acceptance which supports deep healing. During a therapeutic session, you may choose to experience one or more holistic healing modalities, including:
Reiki: An ancient and powerful healing practice that painlessly balances your body’s energy systems, tones your organs, and calms your emotions.
Healing Art © : A form of expressive art-making that helps you discover the root causes of physical and emotional problems and learn how to communicate with body, mind, and spirit to understand and heal them.
Shamanic Healing: A variety of indigenous healing practices, specifically suited to your individual healing needs.
Holistic Wellness Counseling: Practical suggestions for diet; exercise; herbal, homeopathic, and vibrational remedies; and positive lifestyle choices.
