Our Philosophy

We are whole beings and therefore achieving wellness can’t be isolated to just our mental wellbeing. We explore your mental, physical/nutritional, spiritual, and relational areas of your life and how to bring them into alignment to set a foundation for total wellness.

Mental

“Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.” -www.mentalhealth.gov

It is a frequently used term and often the initial need when seeking counseling. We explore the mindset and how it affects all of the areas mentioned above and help you develop tools to achieve and maintain a healthy mind.

Physical/​Nutritional

Disclaimer - We are not physical trainers or physicians. However, we recognize the extreme health benefits of movement and maintaining a healthy body. We partner with professionals in the community for consultations and referrals where needed, to address these needs. It is also a proven fact that mental health challenges can trigger medical problems and vice versa. We seek to support our clients in maintaining wellness in this area as a part of their treatment.

Spiritual

Research has consistently proven that spirituality can promote mental health. We meet the client where they are in this area and incorporate it into their treatment; recognizing this may be different for each person. Only those therapist with training and experience utilize this in their practice.

Relational

Where you are and where you have been are additional and major contributors in where you are going. The people that surround you and have been in your space to this point, have also been contributing actors in your narrative. These relationships and experiences all culminate into a way of surviving when faced with adversity. When in our “pain”, the survival skills (self-preservation) that we have developed kick in and often they are skills that can continue to cause us pain. Particularly when we are relating to others. We will work together in learning how to move from “pain” to “peace” in your life, utilizing research based strategies and techniques.

Our Primary Therapeutic Approach:

Restoration Therapy

What is Restoration Therapy?

“Restoration Therapy (RT) is a Marriage and Family Therapeutic Model that efficiently identifies a client’s identity and safety patterns, while empowering client emotional regulation and mindfulness for behavioral change.

Restoration Therapy combines the advantages of Attachment Theory, Emotional Regulation and Mindfulness in an efficient and organized fashion that allows both the therapist and client to clearly understand old destructive patterns of behavior and promote change. One of the main advantages of RT is that its approach provides the therapist with a clear understanding of how violations of love and trustworthiness develop into problems of identity and safety. This keeps the therapist organized and focused on the patterns that are difficult for clients to change. As the therapist makes these identity and safety patterns known, clients can be helped by making more thoughtful and informed choices about personal beliefs, about self, and about relationships resulting in long lasting behavior change."

“RIGHT TO RECEIVE A GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE OF EXPECTED CHARGES” UNDER THE “NO SUPRISES ACT”

Effective 01/01/2020


Beginning January 1, 2022, federal laws regulating client care have been updated to include the “No Surprises” Act. This Act requires health care practitioners to provide current and potential clients a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) on the cost of treatment.


This new regulation is designed to provide transparency to patients regarding their expected medical expenses and to protect them from surprises when they receive their medical bills. It allows patients to understand how much their health care will cost before they receive services.


We will make every effort to give you an accurate estimate on the costs for your treatment the fee per session is set and available to clients at the time of intake. However, every client and their needs differ, and the number of sessions will very according to client’s identified needs.  Some clients need ongoing support and others may be able to reach their therapeutic goals in a few sessions. We will address this in your initial intake and continue to evaluate treatment and costs as services are rendered. 


You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
