About

Holistic Modalities for Mental Health Recovery

Center for Authentic Living is a outpatient treatment facility in Park Ridge IL supporting those with mental health issues. We recently won the Business Hall of Fame 2018 to 2021 Park Ridge Award for counseling with quality. We bring a 25 year history of assisting individuals and families in healing and continued recovery. CFAL provides psychotherapy for adults, couples, family, adolescents for eating disorders, substance abuse, trauma, anxiety, depression, and stress and pain management. We also support aftercare for IOP PHP, RES programs. We offer DBT, ACT, SP, shiatsu, and acupuncture as adjunct modalities. Our Holistic center offers integrative therapies such as Somatic Experiencing Practice, Sensorimotor, IFS, meditation, and Yogatalk Group Therapy for physical and mental health related issues. We believe these integrative modalities promote health, wellness, and the necessary tools for a substantial recovery. The goal of these BodyCentered techniques is to assist in connecting with your inner experience with curiosity, to develop a more flexible approach in managing your symptoms, and to facilitate mindfulness while addressing these pieces that are stuck in present time.

Our Philosophy and Concentration

CFAL's main concentration is depression, anxiety, addiction and the discovery of past trauma through the issues and behaviors that revolve around how the trauma presents itself. We believe in helping our clients to understand the root of their condition through a compassionate, holistic, and mindfulness approach. We are a multidisciplinary "trauma informed" team that offers expertise in integrative modalities for all aspects of recovery. We also offer holistic approaches in eastern medicine for health wellness and recovery. Our bodywork therapies: shiatsu, somatic movement, body mind acupressure, reiki, and somatic modalities address any physical distress from anxiety and stress management to chronic pain management. Bodywork Therapies are based on Traditional Chinese Medicine and have been known as “non-verbal psychotherapy.” These sessions help the client go into a deep state of relaxation, access emotional tension, and creates a doorway into the client’s process.
