What services do we provide?
We provide counseling and psychotherapy services specializing in supporting couples and families.
Our primary areas of expertise are the following:
What is integrative healing?
Integrative healing is a unique and highly effective therapeutic approach that integrates the fundamental principles of traditional psychotherapy with holistic medicine.
In different contexts the term “integration” may denote different meanings. What we mean by “integrative healing” is creating a healthy alliance between the mind and the body and promoting healing on all levels: emotional, physical, mental, relational, energetic and spiritual.
We look at each person and each condition as an organism that is constantly evolving and adapting to its environment. Our mind and body are not separate, they are one unit which is constantly in contact with the environment and are always acting in response to the environment.
What is holistic counseling?
Holistic counseling is more experiential, prescriptive, and education-oriented compared to traditional psychotherapy. It is skill-based. The counselor will guide the client in understanding how they function. With the help of the counselor’s guidance, support, and know-how, the client experiences new feelings, insights, and sensations. They learn how to tap into their own internal healing resources to regulate (heal) their own organism to ensure health, vitality, peace, and joy.
We realize that human experience has many dimensions. Reduction of a specific symptom or an undesired feeling or behavior is not our goal. That is just putting on a band-aid. Instead, we look and optimizing the functioning of the whole person in their environment, which might involve looking at genetic predispositions, inter-generational trauma, cultural factors, relational aspects, physical or emotional challenges and limitations, lifestyle, and more.
