Individual, Couples, Groups and Family counseling plus Testing/Assessments
Our group practice works with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues. We provide a comfortable and supportive atmosphere. We offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of our clients' individual needs to help attain the personal growth they’re striving for. In this client-therapist relationship, healing is achieved through playfulness, acceptance, curiosity and empathy.
Our practices’ focus is on interpersonal neurobiology or IPNB, which sees the human mind, personal development, relationships, the brain and well-being as a holistic totality inseparable one from the other. Expanding on this, the Mind Body Therapeutics model is based on the conceptual holistic frame of Mind, Body, and the treatment of one’s traumatic history. The Mind is part of quantum energy and leaves behind the one-dimensional old model of Newtonian cause and effect in the natural world. Additionally, the mind is centered in energy and the supernatural realm of mind as energy that collapses the past, present and future into the infinite present moment. The Body is of the past and the material world and must be fed nutrient rich plant-based foods and drink in order to thrive. This eating regimen is based on the work of Anthony William, AKA the Medical Medium. Finally, if past trauma is not worked on and healed, the body can never be fully free of disease and sickness.

Talk while you walk Therapy (TW Therapy) - What Is Talk while you Walk Therapy? (Required Confidentiality Disclosure)
Do you have a specific image of what happens in therapy? Traditional therapy sessions don’t involve much movement. Although the therapist may give you homework to do, which could involve getting some exercise, you don’t always get a chance to move your body in the office. During Talk while you Walk Therapy, exercise is incorporated into the session. Instead of sitting face-to-face with your therapist, which can be stressful and make you feel as though you’re in "a tight spot", you instead get to walk with your mental health professional. You get to discuss your issues as you move. Some may say its even better to be outside during these difficult times we are currently facing.
Talk while you Walk Therapy has several benefits:
Boosts Feel-Good Neurotransmitters
Exercise stimulates the release of endorphins, dopamine, serotonin, and nor-epinephrine. These brain chemicals improve your mood, appetite and sleep. Proper nutrition and healthy sleep habits are vital to your mental well-being. Improving those aspects of your life can do wonders for your psychological health.
But the mood boost that you get from a good walk is a direct benefit. You can often feel the energetic buzz that comes from exercise immediately.
Walking enhances your circulation. With more blood rushing to your brain, your mind works in different ways. The biochemical effects of exercise can help you think more clearly, make better decisions and come up with workable solutions. Incorporating walking into a therapy session can also help you make time for a healthy practice that you might otherwise avoid.
A feeling of ease and better flow of therapy issues
Some people feel a lot of pressure when they’re sitting in silence during therapy. Much like a writer or artist staring at a blank sheet of paper, they may clam up and feel blocked from accessing the creative parts of their minds that can come up with solutions for their problems. Plus, the traditional face-to-face format of therapy can make patients feel inferior to the therapist.
On the other hand, when the mental health professional conducts therapy in casual clothes and running shoes, some of that social hierarchy is eliminated. Walking parallel with someone can remove some of the stress that comes from revealing secrets and working through difficult experiences.
It’s easier to think when no one is staring at you, or expecting an answer right away. You can take your time on your stroll, taking in the environment and focusing on your steps as you move forward physically and symbolically.
Takes advantage of Nature’s Healing Power
Do you enjoy being outside? Does being out in nature calm you or make you feel alive? You’re not the only one who feels this way.
Nature has this effect on people. Spending time outdoors can reduce levels of cortisol, which is a stress hormone. Studies show that being in nature can also relieve hypertension, depression, anxiety, and attention disorders. In addition, communing with nature inspires awe. This emotion can give you perspective. It allows you to increase your awareness of something greater than yourself. Walk and talk therapy can help you open your eyes to your place in this world, and allow you to give up some of the control or entitlement that so many people cling to.
So what Does a Talk while you Walk Therapy Session Look Like?
Talk while you walk therapy sessions are customized to your needs, physical aptitude, and comfort level. Your therapist isn’t a personal trainer; your session won’t focus on your ability to walk quickly or improve your strength; rather it will just help you let loose and create the space to think, feel, and speak more freely. There is no need to sweat or exert yourself. You’ll move at your own pace, and your therapist will follow your lead, guiding you through your therapy as you walk.
We are still in a sub tropical climate so If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we can always grab umbrellas, reschedule or venture back inside. Please let your counselor know ahead of time this is the type of session you are interested in.
