Whole Health Collaborative
Heal Mind Body Spirit

The Story Behind
Since I was young I battled bipolar disorder, OCD, eating disorders and a shameful body image. My life felt empty as I wandered the world in search of myself; from Europe to Japan, Florida to Maine, I tried to find happiness and relief... when I didn't find it, I felt hopeless. In 2004 I finally gave up my lonely battle and got the help I needed... it was then I discovered Yoga and began to understand that healing my mind was not even half the battle... I needed to work on my body and spirit as well.
Since then I have become a licensed psychotherapist & Yoga instructor, I’ve worked with a lot of different people in a lot of different places. Through these experiences I began to clearly see what the mental health field lacked. It is so centered on treating the mind and often leaves out the mind and spirit.
The inspiration for Whole Health Collaborative came suddenly in October, 2018. The vision was clear, a group of independent providers working together to create a holistic and peaceful environment for healing the body, mind and spirit. The Universe conspired with me as things quickly fell into place. The Collaborative took full shape in August of 2019.
Now we are a busy practice of three talented psychotherapists. All of us offer different expertise and insight, all of us understand that the whole person must be considered to help him or her toward personal growth.
The Collaborative is still growing and changing in beautiful ways with the loving support of the team, family and friends. We believe in our mission and hope that you will have the opportunity to visit us, to utilize the gifts we offer, and discover who you really are.
"The body, mind and spirit are not connected… they are one. We simply cannot address one aspect of the triad and expect to fully heal."
