"We believe that all people should have access to Therapy, by clinicians and interns who are continually trained and educated and who are also taken care (not overworked). In doing so we try and meet the needs of those of the community who come to see us by either sliding our fees or accepting medicaid insurance. Lastly we aim to provide free and affordable trainings for the large community and clinicians to continue to learn and grow."
Who We Serve
At Whole Connection we wish to help all those we are able to. Through our many different modalities we aim to provide the right solution and options for all people we serve, including creating service to those who normally don't have financial access to it. We serve a variety of people, below are just a few different scenarios.
- Children who might be experiencing tougher times at home because of life or family changes
- Adolescents feeling unseen, frustrated, or lost and possibly acting out
- Men struggling in relationships to connect with others,
- A young adult with years of struggles to be emotional intimate
- An individual wondering more about their identity
- Someone wishing to rediscover themselves with others.
- People struggling to be in relationship with anyone
- Those who do not feel understood by anyone
Who We Are
Whole Connection came together as a place to provide training and constant growth for therapists who were working in the community, particular with community members who have difficulty accessing mental health resources. We have slowly become a group of therapists and interns and continue to growing. Central to our work is understanding a person through a social work perspective. This means we look at how culture and society effect them along with the importance of mental health concerns. In order to do this we make sure that we continue to learn and grow from the best in our community. To make sure this happens we believe in continuing our own education.
In order for us to provide therapy in this context we continually go through trainings every month on different subjects that are important. As well we provide community trainings to the community, we believe all people should have opportunity to grow. A few examples coming up:
