Optimization & Integration
We strive for excellence in all that we do.
Our approach to treatment is from a Christian perspective. We view the science behind therapeutic treatment as the understanding and discovery of how God designed the human mind and body to heal and thrive. We only utilize treatments that have shown to be effective in research, and we select treatments that are compatible with God’s word.
Further, we believe that there is too much distance between various healthcare professions. Therefore, we plan to optimize coordination and integration between mental health and physical health by bridging the gap between professions. This is accomplished through the collaboration between our primary care providers and the counseling team.
The 3 Primary Areas of
Wellness We Address
Physical Health is defined, reviewed, and analyzed by looking at five main components: physical activity and exercise, nutrition and diet, substance use (including caffeine and alcohol, medical self-care, and rest or sleep.
Mental & Emotional Health
“Mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community” -World Health Organization
An abstract but extremely important portion of who we are as humans is comprised in our spiritual health where we seek to find purpose in this life. Faith and practices of faith can yield large impacts on physical and mental health.
73% of Americans visit a doctor throughout the year.
42% of Americans have seen a counselor over their lifetime.
77% of the population want their spiritual beliefs integrated into their healthcare.
Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.
– C.S. Lewis

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.
