"Experiences as a provider of integrated care in primary care offices, I have seen the true benefits of having access to holistic wellness services in ONE SETTING" ~Amanda Kostura LISW-S, Owner & Therapist
By placing a mental health provider in a non-mental health setting, the doors open for more people (maybe even you!) to access services they would have otherwise felt ashamed or embarrassed to utilize. Change and true happiness are possible, you just have to take that first step. We make it that much easier by tearing down the barriers of access to care and removing the stigma.
As we ourselves grow, carving our own path, we will continue with our forward thinking approach. Engaging in the community through active blogs of experience and awareness, future wellness events, training and anything the opportunity of education and wellness offer us in the future. We envision a world where mental health and physical health are always talked about together in conversations, without hesitation.
