INTEGRATIVE WELLNESS THERAPY™

THE THERAPEUTIC METHOD

Blending Western Therapy with Complementary Techniques

Our own fresh approach to therapy! Our evidence-informed Integrative Wellness Therapy method and philosophy takes the concepts of “holistic” and “biopsychosocial” to a deeper, broader level of wellness. This unique style of intervention joins: traditional therapy practices, gentle body work, neuromuscular facilitation, therapeutic yoga, lifestyle coaching, mindfulness, meditation, self-awareness, spirituality, self-compassion as well as the individual’s meaning and purpose in life.

For your child, your parent or yourself. Our individualized and comprehensive treatment sessions provide deep life changes through intensive, individually tailored, and clinically therapeutic intervention for the whole person and their physical and social settings. Our therapists (Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Physical Therapy, Yoga Therapy, Psychology Therapy, and Social Work) honor the inseparable nature of the human system and each body's inherent wisdom in restoring balance.

Making the “impossible” POSSIBLE! Our clients express to us that through our IWT interventions, they have moved much beyond the limitations they were left with following a more traditional therapy setting. They are better able to implement small changes for bigger results. Hope and engagement in life returns as the personally distressing limitations are addressed head-on with intensity. Our program is rooted in the individual's own nature, manifested through personal and intrinsic motivation, and brought to fruition through guided support to provide:

Empowering solutions ~ Achievement of meaningful improvements ~ Doing what you want and need to do in daily life
