Helping you change how you relate to yourself, your world and to the people around you.

Individual Therapy

Our HHC therapists are ready to help you on your healing journey. The essence of individual therapy is to co-create a rewarding, regulating, and bonding relationship. We want you to know everything you think and feel makes perfect sense based on your life experiences.

Our integrative therapy approach focuses on your mind, body, and spirit – gently guiding you as you explore underlying disturbances from childhood and even adulthood. As a result of these disturbing and hurtful experiences, you found ways to protect yourself in order to survive and not feel the pain.

Our integrative approach may help uncover these unconscious survival patterns and help you respond to current stressors. You'll learn to respond – not from a place of old, stuck patterns – but truly be “response-able" without reacting from past triggering experiences. This process brings what was hidden to the surface, allowing the healing to begin and helping you reclaim your authentic self.

Our individual therapies include the most current combination of trauma resolution methods, body-focused therapy, and energetic modalities — all reconnecting and freeing the mind, body, emotions, and spirit.

Our goal is to find the right therapist and type of therapy (or combination of therapies) to meet your individual needs, offering a comfortable and safe space at HHC to begin your healing journey. We provide the most current treatments all in one Healing Center, helping you rediscover your authentic self and reclaim a life of peace and possibility.

Types of Therapy Treatments Available

Attachment-based therapy can help you find new ways of responding to either the fear of being abandoned or the fear of being engulfed.

Repairing attachment wounds can begin to happen as safe, responsive and non-judgmental relationships forge new secure attachments. A therapeutic relationship can build healthy thoughts and behavior patterns that fill the development gap caused by attachment injury.

In this new safe relationship space, discovery of your attachment style is a huge part of this process. With an attachment-based therapist, you will get to know your attachment style, how this style developed, and how that impacts who you are today and the relationships you have. It will also help make sense of some of the symptoms you struggle with.

If you are looking to know your attachment style, address the worry and fear you live with, and feel more secure overall, attachment-based therapy may be for you. At HHC, our therapists are trained in many methods of attachment-based approaches and have a deep understanding of how we heal in relationships.

EMDR is used by thousands of therapists across the world. Most clients report positive effects with EMDR after only a few sessions, making it an effective trauma treatment.

EMDR stimulates the brain’s information processing system through eye movements or other forms of rhythmic stimulation. EMDR aims to assist individuals in processing trauma and reduce emotional distress.

The idea behind EMDR is that the brain can't process information normally when a person is upset by a negative event. This moment becomes “frozen," and the memories may feel as painful as the original event. The impact of these memories can negatively shape how someone sees the world, affect their interactions with others, and change how they perceive themselves.

EMDR helps to "unfreeze" these moments and allow the brain to process the information normally. The individual no longer relives images, sounds, and feelings when the event is brought to mind. They still remember what happened, but it's less upsetting.

Another benefit is that the negative beliefs attached to the event become more balanced. An abuse survivor who used to feel "not good enough" may come to understand that what happened to them wasn't their fault and they are good enough.

EFT consists of talking through stressful memories and negative emotions while tapping with your fingertips on specific meridian points or acupressure points.

Everything in the universe is made of energy — including the body. Negative emotions manifest as a disruption of the body's energy. When you balance that energy, you release the negative emotions and the resulting physical symptoms.

Tapping on specific points around the body regulates your body's "fight or flight" response to fear. The tapping communicates with the part of your brain that controls this response. Tapping restores the body’s energy balance.

While directing your attention to the issue that's troubling you, use your fingertips to tap 5-7 times on 9 of the body’s meridian points. While you tap, concentrate on accepting and resolving the negative emotions. This is a powerful process.

Best of all, you can use this technique on your own anytime, anywhere. The power to heal yourself is (literally) in your hands.

This type of therapy identifies and names the many facets of a person's personality — like the frightened child, perfectionist or the inner bully. Everyone has many parts, and it does not mean that you have multiple personalities, rather that you are complex and human.

Ego State Therapy was originally developed by psychotherapists John Watkins and Helen Watkins who specialized in hypnosis and dissociation. Internal Family Systems is a continuation of this work and has been synthesized by Richard Schwartz.

You have an “internal system” that has learned to protect you in many different ways. This system has parts from the different developmental stages when you've been hurt, and different parts of you hold on to uncomfortable emotions like shame, anger, or fear and even hold terrifying memories that the entire system is not ready to review and reprocess.

The goal of Ego State Therapy is to help the hurt parts heal, quiet the inner chaos, and restore balance. Working with your inner parts allows you to uncover the most beautiful and creative elements of yourself that often have been buried and burdened. When unleashed, you access a newfound ability to feel compassion, connect to yourself, and connect to others.

Sensorimotor therapy combines talk therapy with alternative forms of physical therapy by allowing yourself to feel uncomfortable or hurtful experiences and paying attention to the physical responses and sensations.

Sensorimotor therapy is based on the belief that the mind, body, spirit, and emotions are all related and connected to each other. As a result, the stress of past emotional and traumatic events causes changes in the body as well as body language.

The goal of somatic therapy is to help you rediscover awareness of the mind-body connection, while learning interventions to release the negative emotions that remain stuck in your body as a result of all that has happened to you.

Adolescent Therapy

Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity. As adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

We’re here to help you strengthen your relationship with your adolescent while helping them navigate this confusing time. Our highly skilled HHC therapists help families and adolescents learn to communicate in a non-threatening, non-judgmental, healthy, and transparent way. We do this with the intention of repairing relationship ruptures and creating a safe place where your adolescent can come to you openly knowing you are safe. Healing is possible, and helping repair relationships is what we are committed to at HHC. We believe connection is what we all crave — yes, even your adolescent.

Group Therapy For Disordered Eating

(Based on the Book An Internal Family Systems Guide to Recovery from Eating Disorders: Healing Part by Part)

This is a 12-week therapy group helping those who feel isolated and ashamed of their disordered eating, feeling the need to keep the disordered eating issues hidden. At HHC, we believe healing can happen while being in a safe space with caring people.

After a time in individual therapy, many clients are ready to enter a small group and begin building relationships they choose where they feel comfortable and begin to grow with the other group members. Through consistent and compassionate connection, there is often an emerging of awareness, vitality, joy, creativity, and co-creativity. This healing journey can help you become a more loving, aware, grounded, and joyful presence in the world where you can give the gifts you were born to give — thus creating a meaningful life.
