Our Integrative Approach to Treatment
More than Just Medication–A Path for Life-Long Health and Wellness
Complementary and Alternative Treatments for
Addiction, Chronic Pain, Mental Health and Wellness
Natural Alternatives to Traditional Medication
For those who prefer natural medicine to pharmaceuticals, Dr. Koenig may recommend specific evidence-based supplements, vitamins and herbal remedies. Some of these natural medicines increase the effectiveness of conventional antidepressants or anxiety medications, while other natural medicines can replace a conventional medication altogether. Through our partnership with EmersonWellivate (SM) we are able to recommend specific products and formulations that are third party tested for quality and potency. Because we chose to make no profit from the sale of any of these products, you are able to purchase products at a 35% savings.
Nutritional and Lifestyle Counseling
We will review your current eating pattern, activity level, sleep and self-care to identify what changes may have the biggest impact on your mood, energy, focus and physical health. Using an evidence-based integrative approach we will work with you to create a personalized plan for wellness that starts from where you are now with small changes that build your confidence and have an immediate effect on your well-being.
We teach clients how to decrease anxiety, reduce pain, and improve their focus and sleep using non-invasive technology that provides clients with real-time feedback on the impact of their thoughts and emotions on their nervous system. Clients learn how to alter their body chemistry and create a sense of calm using paced breathing exercises. Through guided and independent practice, clients strengthen the part of their parasympathetic nervous system which provides bi-directional communication between the heart and the brain. Clients may even borrow equipment to practice techniques at home between sessions or may elect to purchase their own devices for home use.
Decades of research show that mindfulness practice reduces stress, improves anxiety, depression, chronic pain and cardiovascular health. We offer mindfulness instruction and practice in a variety of formats including group and individual sessions. Mindfulness is also a core part of our dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) group and our yoga for recovery class which uses restorative yoga as a foundation for mental health and recovery.
Yoga for the Mind and Body
Our yoga for recovery class combines restorative yoga techniques with mindfulness to reduce tension and anxiety and increase body awareness, acceptance and relaxation. This therapeutic approach can be especially powerful for individuals who have experienced trauma or struggle with chronic feelings of disconnection or anxiety. Two of our therapists are extensively trained in yoga and Serena is a certified yoga instructor. Their expertise in both yoga and mental health enable them to combine therapeutic techniques for whole body healing and wellness.
Our goal is to help you increase your happiness, strengthen your resilience and improve your overall mental and physical health.
