Our mission is to support and serve individuals and families who have gone through trauma, loss, crisis, stressful life transitions, depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges. We help them heal and live a more connected and meaningful life though mind-body-spirit psychotherapy, trauma-informed, nonviolent parenting support, and holistic wellness coaching. We believe a strong sense of connection to community and each other is the key ingredient for a wholehearted healing process.
The Wholistic Connection envisions a world of healthy and connected families and communities in which children, adolescents and adults respect and care for each other’s mental and physical health and wellbeing.
We integrate and emphasize the overall wellbeing of our clients and their families. We treat each individual and family with dignity and respect. We honor while embracing unique culture backgrounds, talents and perspectives. By collaborating with a trusted network of professionals, our clients benefit from a more targeted and individually designed program.
"Health is a state of body. Wellness is a state of being."
We utilize various treatment models that provide short-term symptom relief and long-term healing and recovery. All modalities see the person as a whole, including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy which is a mindfulness based, nonviolent, and somatic mind-body approach.
Rui is a certified nonviolent parenting educator and trained by Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE), also influenced by interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB). We provide 10 weeks of group parenting classes or individual private coaching sessions. Sessions can be provided through videoconferencing for your convenience.
We provide life and integrative wellness coaching to help adolescents and adults elevate their self-esteem, renew their desires for life, better manage their stress and anxiety, building better relationships, learning more effective communication skills, cultivating self-love, self-compassion, authenticity, spirituality, resiliency, creativity and meaningful life.
"Wholeness is not achieved by cutting off a portion of one's being, but by integration of the contraries."
