Integrative Mental Health

It involves a review of all physiological systems that relate to your symptoms, review of brain areas affected, SPECT imaging if indicated, stressors in your life, beliefs and feelings driving the symptoms and any spiritual issues with which you are dealing.

WHAT ARE MIND-BODY TOOLS?

Mind-Body tools include:

ETT or Emotional Transformation Therapy
(Lightbox) is a form of energy medicine using light, color and peripheral eye stimulation to decrease anxiety, change old stuck emotions, thoughts, behaviors or states of pain to a healthier, desirable, more empowered experience. Color serves as a catalyst to draw forth both emotional and physical responses. The practitioner attunes to the individual and selects colors and frequencies that match the moment to moment state of mind and body. When this match occurs, there is a profound emotional shift. It is often the case that a desired experience such as calm, peace, relaxation or joy fills the space of the released emotion. This experience is then anchored in the body and available to integrate into your life.

Hypnotherapy is a state of consciousness that an individual enters through a deep state of relaxation. Breathing and heart rate slow and the individual accesses the deep inner healer. Hypnotherapy helps individuals discover the origins and motivations for thinking and behavior and uses that information to reprogram the mind with the patient’s desired goals and beliefs. Transpersonal hypnotherapy is designed to be a series of journeys to return to a state of balance and reconnect with your essential self.

Mindfulness is paying kind attention to the thoughts that arise without judgment. This practice is accompanied by breathing thus allowing the thoughts to move through your consciousness. This practice increases our self attention and expands our capacity for vulnerability.
