Learn how to Support Our Youth’s Mental Well Living

Through learning to support our youth with the Integrative Wellness Therapy method, we ourselves learn this fresh approach to building a foundation that supports social-emotional learning and mental wellness, through blending the ancient wisdom of complementary techniques with western science and therapeutics. The IWT philopsophy takes the concepts of “holistic” and “bio-psycho-social” to a deeper, broader level. This unique style of intervention incorporates a layered and linked view of the whole person. The mental supports the physical and the physical supports mental. We honor the inseparable nature of the human system and each body’s inherent wisdom in restoring balance.

asking the big whys and hows for 30 years

Let’s face it, figuring out how to support our youth in navigating life in ways that set them up to thrive and stay in balance is a challenge of the heart. We live in an imperfect world full of temptations and distractions. Through 30 years of practice with youth, I kept asking why and how, drilling down deeper to root issues of individual challenges.  Through years of research, personal and clinical experience, I have learned souces of suffering and holistic methods of addressing the deeper issues. At IWT, we help cut through the clutter, and support our youth in getting in touch with their inner wisdom — helping them to learn what pulls them off center and what fills their cup, anchoring to nature and the divine. Resilience and embodied physical and mental wellness is the goal.

“I recently attended your workshop in Renton Washington. You can teach an old dog new tricks. I have been working in the public schools for thirty years and I picked up some new great strategies at your workshop. I would like to share what I learned with my colleagues in Peninsula School District in beautiful Gig Harbor Washington. I identified with your holistic view of OT and the OT Yoga connection.”
