Our Philosophy

Total Wellness

Wellness is more than just eating right or exercising regularly. It is also taking care of your mind. According to SAMSHA, wellness is "being in good physical and mental health. Because mental health and physical health are linked, problems in one area can impact the other. At the same time, improving your physical health can also benefit your mental health, and vice versa. It is important to make healthy choices for both your physical and mental well-being. Remember that wellness is not the absence of illness or stress. You can still strive for wellness even if you are experiencing these challenges in your life."

Our Wellness Monitoring Plans are centered around the Eight Dimensions of Wellness because we understand the importance of not abandoning the good because we experiencing some bad. Struggling in one of the Eight Dimensions does not mean all is lost, not by a long shot. By helping our clients understand having a bad day in one area, or even multiple areas, is okay as long as they continue to press forward in the areas that are going well, we are able to reshape their perception and provide them with hope that they can get through their situation and come out better on the other side. Suddenly, areas of your life where you are struggling will not feel so big. We do not have to fix all Eight Dimensions right away, we just need to keep doing well in the areas where we are thriving and focus our attention on the areas that where we are struggling.


Eight Dimensions of Wellness

We understand your situation is unique to you. You may be struggling in the same area as someone else but your struggle will look very different in the reality you are living in. This is because there are Eight Dimensions of Wellness and you may be struggling in multiple areas.
