   MINDFULNESS-BASED THERAPY  is a way of learning to relate directly to the present                    moment to restore a balanced sense of health and well-being through increased awareness of      all aspects of self, including body, mind, heart and soul.

   Benefits of Mindfulness-based practices include:

   Reductions in pain level

   Enhanced ability to cope with chronic pain and illnesses, anxiety and panic, GI distress, sleep     disturbances, fatigue, high blood pressure and headaches

   An increased ability to relax and cope with stress

   Greater energy and enthusiasm for life

   INDIVIDUAL/COUPLE'S/FAMILY THERAPY is a heart-centered, compassionate approach to      increase a person's ability to have a deeper, more compassionate awareness of self and others.    Dr. McGlynn's goal in relationship counseling is to create a safe space where both people's            needs, wants, resentments, pain, concerns, and dreams can be deeply heard, understood and      embraced. Once deep listening is established, compassion and respect can flourish and true        partnership and union can happen.

   HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing.   

   Accelerated breathing and specialized music sets are used to enter an expanded state

   of awareness which can activate the natural inner healing process.  The process includes a

   three hour breathwork session accompanied by music, bodywork, mandala drawing and

   group process.

   This work is of value to those interested in inner exploration, self-discovery and spiritual              awareness. It is a wonderful adjunct to psychotherapy and other forms of inner work, as well      as a powerful method of self-care for helping professionals.

   Dr. McGlynn completed the Grof Transpersonal Training Program in 2015 and is a Certified        Holotropic Breathwork facilitator. Individual and group sessions are available as well as                daylong and weekend holotropic workshops.

  PSYCHOLOGY OF SYMPTOMS© is a psycho-spiritual process that explores how our thoughts,     feelings and belief systems influence our lives. The Psychology of Symptoms is an innovative       drug free adjunct to western medical treatment. Thru this process you will experientially learn   how your "life story” and the survival strategies you developed to cope with it create                         imbalances in your physiology and manifest as your symptoms.

  The Psychology of Symptoms process will not only afford you the opportunity to be free of             chronic and acute symptoms, it will ultimately allow you to embody those aspects of yourself       that were judged, dismissed or disowned in order to cope with your childhood. You will have       the opportunity to return to your original innocence and creativity. Many people experience         this process as a coming home to their” authentic self”, a recapturing of their full vitality, and     an opportunity to move forward in life with creative passion and purpose.

  The Psychology of Symptoms is rooted in the science of the mind-body connection that is               becoming more readily available to mainstream medicine and spirituality. This process                 masterfully blends Voice Dialogue, Journey Work, energy healing, and truly illuminates how       our biography can become our biology.

                              In addition to the services described above, the Center offers massage

                  therapy, bodywork, Reiki, Naturopathic medicine, yoga, belly dancing classes and                               movement therapy, nutritional consultations for gluten-free diets and Focusing.
