Wellness-Based Therapy

Feeling as if you aren’t tethered to anything and have no understanding of your identity? Living in a cycle of repetitive patterns and glazed over by depression and anxiety? Having a hard time fostering hope and happiness? Feeling emotionally stuck or having a hard time developing a good quality of life?

Have You Considered Wellness-Based Therapy?

Wellness-Based Therapy is focused on the client’s 8-dimensions of wellness as they pertain to wants, needs, and goals. It is a strength-based and culturally considerate approach to therapy that focus on treating underlying causes of symptoms and examining the person’s well-being from a holistic perspective. Holistic forms of therapy allow room for healing that addresses issues and recognizes factors from a mental, emotional, and spiritual standpoint, as well as the physical health of the patient.

Disclaimer: Wellness-Based Therapy is not a medical model of psychological diagnostics and does not lead to a diagnoses or treatment plan. Intentional Simplicity LLC has an established referral system to meet your where you are in this journey of healing.

When we don't have hope, we have no energy or motivation for therapy... or for any effort to change our situation.

What does therapy with me look like?

1. Incorporation of Mindfulness and Wellness within the client to learn the fundamentals of how to heal. We must learn the basics of caring for ourselves before we can create change internally.

2. Encouragement and Validation of your experiences. What is it like to be you? Do you feel comfortable speaking with me or someone else about your presenting concerns?

3. Establish support and create solutions with the client to build sustainability. If you can not implement what you learn in therapy outside of therapy, I am not doing my job!

4. Continue to show up for yourself in many ways! The work is not done after you leave the therapy room! Create art, join support groups, incorporate wellness in totality. In other words, continue to participate in your healing! I am here to support you.

5. Termination. We are in everyone’s life for a season, if our season has come to an end, I will explore that with you and support your transitions as best as I can.

All sessions are completed virtually and by appointment only. Please know that Tele-therapy will be a different quality of services than in-person sessions. It will also be challenging to conduct art as therapy this way! What will be important is that you make efforts to access a quiet space free of distractions and other individuals.
