Can Counseling Help Me?

What leads us to need counseling? It can be wear-and-tear of constant stress, trauma, an eating disorder, mood issues, loss, relationship troubles, or any combination of factors. Any of these problems are often debilitating. Maybe you aren’t even sure what is causing your distress. Any concern that gets in the way of taking great care of your own health is the perfect subject with which to begin counseling. Dr. Heintzelman believes that good health comes from a balance between our mind, body and environment. You and Dr. Heintzelman will work together to help improve any issue that keeps you from feeling your best.

Integrative Medicine

is an approach to treatment that puts YOU at the center and addresses your emotional, physical, mental, social, and environmental influences that affect your health. Dr. Heintzelman will employ the most appropriate empirically validated treatments based on your needs. A personalized strategy will be implemented that will take into account your unique presenting concerns and circumstances. You and Dr. Heintzelman will work closely with specialists from other scientific disciplines (e.g., nutritional therapists, primary care physicians, psychiatrists, grief specialists, etc.) to form a multidisciplinary team that will collaboratively help you regain and maintain optimal health.

Grief Recovery

Many of the presenting concerns listed above also related to feelings of grief. Grief is defined as any conflicting group of emotions caused by an end to or change in a familiar pattern of behavior.* This means that essentially anything that has affected you negatively is a grieving experience. The goal of the grief recovery process is to help find wholeness and wellness after addressing the pain and anguish that accompanies any grief or loss.*

 

Dr. Heintzelman frequently teams with Casey McCoy, Grief Recovery Method Specialist. Casey will work with you to acquire skills through a sequential process in order to complete your relationship to the heartache caused by any emotional loss (e.g., loss due to death, divorce, unrealized dreams, career loss, loss of trust, chronic illness, etc). Please contact Casey (contact info listed above) with questions or to schedule.
