At WNY Holistic Counseling, we are experienced licensed mental health counselors who are passionate about helping older adolescents and adults treat their anxiety, depression, relationship concerns and trauma holistically.
Life can often be challenging. You may feel you've gotten "off track" and need some direction. You may be overwhelmed with things and don't know what to do or how to make it better. It may be starting to affect your relationships, and you don't know how to stop it. You may be wondering what's wrong with you and why this keeps happening, or whether you're depressed. Perhaps you're having panic attacks that come out of nowhere. Or maybe you seem to have developed social anxiety, especially after months and months of being cooped up and isolating due to the pandemic. Perhaps you just don't feel like yourself or aren't content with your life any longer. You want things to be different, you just don't know how to make that happen. You might be wondering whether you're always going to feel this way. You've got a lot going for you, you've accomplished quite a bit, but it still feels like there's something missing. You're not sure what else to do. Most of us feel this way at some point in our lives. Especially when trying to handle the stress of life, relationships and the impact of certain events all at once.
Life has a lot of demands that can cause us to overthink our daily activities and take a toll on both our mental and physical well-being. We can help you find that balance and a feeling of relief in your life while finding a way for you to manage your family, work, and social networks. It is our belief that everyone is an expert in their own life, and we hope you will allow us to understand your own subjective views so we can work together. In therapy, our approach comes from understanding the importance of trust and honesty between a the client and their therapist. We see counseling as a safe place for you to heal from current and past emotional wounds.
Our sessions are based upon a calm and inviting environment to make you feel comfortable enough to work through any current struggles. During treatment, we emphasize the importance of using multiple techniques and approaches to best fit your individual needs. We understand the importance of incorporating the whole person into treatment and developing a plan to help you succeed in every aspect of your life.
We all have struggles and deal with different issues. We truly care about our clients and want to help you find your way to a better life. We know that it can seem insurmountable at times, but it doesn't have to be that way. We are passionate about helping people move beyond the obstacles, make positive changes and empower you to your highest potential. We want to make your life better. We have spent the last several years helping people just like you feel better, get back "on track" and get the anxiety and/or depression under control so they can live the kind of life they want to live.
Let us do the same for you. Our warm, relaxed, and comfortable approach involves genuine caring, healing, acceptance, and non-judgment. We truly want to hear your story and help you make it better. Please don't wait one more day. We look forward to hearing from you!
