Marriage & Family Therapy and Massage Therapy
Coming Together to address the effects of trauma
Our approach to therapy is founded on the belief that the mind, body and spirit are intertwined and the health of each impacts the well-being of the whole. We address the needs of all three dimensions in healing from past traumas. Along with individual, couple and family counseling, our practice integrates massage therapy, yoga groups, mindfulness practices such as meditation, into a holistic approach to the processing and recovery from trauma.
With the focus on helping people recover and thrive, we provide counseling for individuals, couples and families struggling with the ramifications of trauma--childhood and adolescent sexual, emotional and physical abuse and other post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD). The resulting symptoms from trauma of anxiety, depression, insomnia, lack of focus and concentration, memory loss, can be debilitating and we are committed to helping you get your life back.
Dr. Seuss affirms what we at Oak City Wellness Center know; “A person’s a person, no matter how small.” A small person (child) is not always able to verbalize how she is feeling about life events, and traumas.
We specialize in working with children through play therapy and sand tray therapy. These child specific interventions help them access their feelings and work through the issues that are causing them distress.
Life is beautiful but life can also be hard. Managing work, family, friends and all the other parts of our increasingly demanding lives, can lead to anxiety and depression and other mental health disorders.
At Oak City Wellness Center we know that massage is not a luxury but a necessity. The body, mind and spirit are interconnected and caring for the body facilitates health for the whole person.
Couple & Family Therapy
Being a couple and part of a family offers us a sense of security and connectedness to something bigger than ourselves but, sometimes, that same system can breakdown and cause us great distress. The very people we love the most have the power to hurt us the most. This couple and family bond--its strengths and resiliency is the most powerful force on the planet. Oak City Wellness Center works with you and your spouse and other family members to tap into your strengths and heal your spousal, parental and child relationship.
