High-impact approaches for anxiety & trauma
Progressive support for personal growth & spiritual crisis

Like progressive medical models that treat root causes of disease rather than just managing symptoms,

the Center for Holistic Behavioral Health provides therapies that address mental health problems at the source.


Recognizing how essential physical and spiritual wellness can be to mental health, the Center for HBH

also provides services supporting positive lifestyle change and deep personal growth.  

EMDR & Hypnotherapy

The most common treatment approaches can be limited for PTSD, anxiety, depression, or issues like anger and shame. Mind-body, or somatic therapies, can produce faster, more impactful results by engaging the limbic system--the  foundation of the mind-body connection and a reason mental health problems often have physical symptoms like panic, insomnia, poor digestion, and chronic pain.

EMDR lowers the intensity of feelings and symptoms attached to traumatic or adverse experiences. Distinct from hypnosis for habit change, hypnotherapy brings the power of awareness to memories and patterns you may not realize are linked to emotional, behavioral, or relational problems.
Both methods begin reframing dysfunctional beliefs that negatively impact your life.

Approaches for Psychospiritual Growth or Crisis

You may feel connected to the intangible, drawn to deep inner work, or ready to shift trauma into growth. You may be experiencing a ''spiritual emergency'' related to crisis of meaning, changing beliefs, addiction recovery, or the need for psychedelic integration. The goal of transpersonal therapy may be insight into your ''shadow side,'' guidance through a spiritual issue others don't understand, or clarity about life path or purpose.  It's also a way to get the most out of Mind-Body Therapy.

Transpersonal approaches such as Internal Family Systems and Jungian depth psychology view the personality as limited by wounds and social conditioning, and help you connect to a center of guidance beyond it in order to respond more intentionally. 


Goal-Setting for Optimal Health

You may need help making lifestyle changes to heal a chronic illness, reduce stress, move forward after a difficult chapter, or strengthen your addiction recovery with a holistic plan. Based on the science of habit development, Wellness Planning translates your self-improvement thoughts into goals and actions with the momentum of structure and support. Often, use of a Mind-Body Therapy will maximize your efforts by illuminating or releasing psychological obstacles to change.

Wellness Planning can also include information about targeted nutritional approaches for anxiety, depression, and addiction cravings, which you can then discuss using with your medical provider.
