Nature's Way Holistic Counseling offers clinical mental health counseling with the addition of a health and wellness framework that connects the body, mind, and spirit. We believe in the term "holistic" counseling because our minds are not independent of all other aspects of life, but is dependent upon the complex, interconnected factors of life, including the food we eat, the environment in which we live, and the content we consume. Although some counseling services address these topics on some level, there is a gap in the field of practitioners offering such a comprehensive evaluation.

Are you struggling with feelings of worthlessness, overwhelming sadness, and thoughts about not being good enough? Have you suffered from deep trauma that has haunted you throughout your life, causing unbelievable pain? Are the things that used to work to help you deal with pain now apparently falling short? Often people reach a point in their lives where the pain from the past can no longer be ignored. You tell yourself everything is fine, but suddenly, it's not.

I have received training for CBT for depression and suicide , sand-tray therapy, and TF-CBT.
Certain events in our lives can alter the way we view ourselves, others, and the world around us. Maybe you're blaming yourself for something that happened to you. Maybe you're angry at yourself for not being able to move past it. Maybe it's so distressing that you are struggling with daily functioning. You may be starting to notice the ways that these events are impacting your relationships, education, or work life. You may have tried to express yourself to someone and they told you to "just move on" or "look on the bright side". I am here to tell you: your feelings are valid. As humans, we were not made to carry our burdens alone.

I work with childhood sexual abuse, suicidal thoughts, traffic accidents, medical trauma and domestic violence.
Trauma doesn’t often show it's effects immediately or plainly. It is often hidden in patterns of sleepless nights, negative thinking, anxious worry, and feelings of despair and emptiness. It casts a long shadow that begins to de-color every aspect of life. Activities that were previously enjoyed are scheduled less often. You've noticed not only effects but that it has changed who you are. You’ve noticed that the way you feel about the world & others is very different. The thoughts you have about yourself are no better. And every part of life is categorized by whether it happened “before”. “Before the accident, before the bullying".

I routinely incorporate Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), connecting body and mind in the healing process, and integrate CBT, IPT, DBT, Gottman Method, Meaning-making, Suicide Bereavement, & Trauma-informed interventions.
Stress is inevitable, it's how we respond to it that matters. While stress can be a catalyst for spiritual, physical and emotional growth, it can also impact our short and long-term well-being. During stressful times, it's important to recognize emotional and physical changes. However, if we avoid or neglect our internal experiences because of the fear of pain, we essentially shut ourselves off from any potential growth our challenges offer. My goal is to support you through challenging times, allowing you to open fully to the present moment by incorporating compassion-oriented and mindfulness-based strategies.

My name is Stephanie and I’m here to guide you. When we experience trauma, we may find it easier to leave it in the past; however, these experiences can change how we think and feel about ourselves and our surroundings. Through therapy, we can regain understanding of ourselves by reconnecting to our feelings of safety, belonging, and hope.

While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
