    Our Holistic Approach

    Because you matter.

    Holistic care is a philosophy characterized by an understanding that all the parts of us are intimately interconnected. 

     At WEC, we use a holistic approach to guide you toward complete wellness. This means we view you as an entire person, and not just the symptom(s) or problem(s) that you may be experiencing.

    Our holistic approach includes a focus on:

    • Brain Health
    • Lifestyle Factors 
    • Diet & Nutrition 
    • Spirituality & Internal Connection
    • Social Support 
    • Physical Health & Exercise
    • Relationships & Boundaries
    • Technology & Content Consumption
    • Childhood Family Dysfunction
    • Redefining Trauma
    • Societal Pressures & Norms

    All of the above factors impact your mental wellness! 

    Holistic care includes a decreased need to diagnose.  We view “diagnoses”, such as anxiety, depression, or mood disorders, as a symptom of a greater problem rather than the problem itself.  We explore, identify, and resolve root causes to prevent the same problem from manifesting in your life in a different form.

    For example, if you report mild depressive symptoms, it’s important to rule out any potential medical issues and nutrition first, i.e. thyroid issues, low Vitamin D or hormonal imbalances. We encourage utilizing natural ways to improve depressive symptoms, like exercise and nutrition, combined with individual behavioral therapy, with a focus on brain health.

    You can find mental wellness and experience joy in life; we are here to help you achieve that!

    3 Ways We Are Different

    Do you feel like you haven’t made the progress you were hoping to in prior therapy experiences? Or feel stuck and are unsure where to start? Rest assured that you are in the right place! 

    Here’s what you gain with us:

    1. Learn coping skills to help you cope with the symptoms you are experiencing right now.

    2. Explore, identify, and resolve / heal root causes and unresolved issues.

    3. Receive action steps to work on independently to enhance your therapeutic process.

    Coping Skills

    It’s important to assess the ways in which you’ve coped throughout your life and replace ineffective or unhealthy coping those with effective, healthy coping.  

    We help you explore and identify individualized coping skills that work for you!

    This is an important step in the therapeutic process because therapy is about emotional work.  You’ll need to have healthy ways of managing emotions as you work through root causes.

    Root Causes

    Oftentimes, root causes aren’t explored and resolved in therapy. This is key! If we don’t explore and resolve the root of the problem, then it will continue to return in your life in different forms. 

    We guide you through this process to help you explore and identify what those unresolved issues are, and then work as a team to resolve them.

    Self-Healing

    We will give you steps to work on independently in between your sessions that will enhance your therapeutic process.  The work you do in between sessions is where the change happens; when you intentionally do things different or notice your thoughts changing. 

    We guide you through your healing journey each step of the way!
