Counseling can play a critical role in helping us to live a happy and healthy life. Psychological patterns based in fear, anger, resentment, and sorrow are harmful to our well-being at every level, and changing these patterns on our own can be challenging which is why we offer the services of a highly experienced therapist on our staff.
At Kirkland Whole Life Clinic, we believe that the free flow of energy in the body is fundamental to emotional and physical equanimity. If the body is not open, if we are struggling and have a problematic outlook, life force is not moving freely. In that disposition, we are suffering, unable to give and receive positive energy, and this greatly obstructs healing.
In our therapeutic approach we are sensitive to how thought process is used as a way to suppress or otherwise react to challenging feelings. Reacting to feelings, instead of fully allowing them and responding in an appropriate manner, we believe, is what ails many people in our world. Teaching our patients and clients how to relax and accept their feelings, to forgive themselves and others, and to challenge and grow past their limits is central to our mission and can only lead to lasting improvements in their quality of life.
