Integrated Mental Wellness
What is Integrated Mental Wellness?
Integrated mental wellness combines lifestyle interventions, supplements/herb/plant medicine, and a range of complementary and alternative holistic therapies to understand and address mental wellness and stress reduction. The mind, body and spirit are intricately intertwined, one impacting the other synchronistically at many times. I pull from both energy medicine, wellness, integrated medicine, coaching, counseling methods, mindfulness practices, mental wellness education and neurobiology, metaphysics, psychic arts and transpersonal practices. The focus is on looking at your whole system structure and supporting you in a strengths based process in order to help you achieve mental wellness. I'm a cross between an integrated medicine practitioner, therapeutic art facilitator, yogi, spiritualist and wellness coach, trained extensively in each.
I hold a Phd in Psychology/Transpersonal Counseling am a credentialed substance abuse counselor, registered/unlicensed psychotherapist in Colorado and Vermont with numerous credentials and certifications in a variety of transpersonal, clinical, integrated health and expressive arts areas. I am legally allowed to practice counseling in Colorado, Vermont and substance use counseling in Missouri. I am legally allowed to offer Integrated Mental Wellness services and coaching across the United States.
What I do...
I provide integrated mental wellness education, coaching, transpersonal arts based substance use and metaphysical/spiritual counseling, traditional healing rituals/treatment with therapeutic art experiences, guided imagery, somatics and more to clients all over the country via telehealth. I refer to several other mind/body practitioners including massage therapists, manual therapists and acupuncturists in the Denver and Kansas City metro areas. I will be offering in-office appointments in Gladstone, Missouri on a by appointment basis beginning in 2023 as well as telehealth appointments (continuing) through my HIPPA compliant portal as I have been since 2019. Obviously some somatic and body based services are not available via telehealth (hand reflexology, cranial sacral) however, all other body based processes are (yoga, Qi Gong, somatic movement and I instruct on acupressure and reflexology points for self application). Energy work, therapeutic art, plant medicine, Curanderismo, sound therapy can all be done via telehealth. I have numerous tools in my toolbox that I've developed over the past 30 years. I work with you to find the combination of tools that helps you develop mental wellness, happiness and heal yourself.

"Seek the outstanding mental conflict in the person, give him the remedy that will overcome that conflict and all the hope and encouragement you can, then the virtue within him will, itself do all the rest."
