    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

    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, + 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 Iron. Making sure you’re in good physical health also impacts your mental wellness! 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? Well then you’ve come to the right place! Here’s what you gain with us:

    1. Learn coping skills to manage the symptoms you are experiencing right now.
    2. Explore & process root causes and heal unresolved issues.
    3. Receive ACTION steps to work on between sessions to enhance your therapeutic process.

     

    Oftentimes, root causes aren’t explored + 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. Also, 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!

    We work together as a team! You are the expert on your life; we are the guide on your journey. Each session is tailored to your goals, strengths, + needs. We customize our therapeutic interventions to you
