Who Can Benefit

Diagnoses are a cluster of symptoms that serve as jumping off points to inform us of what might be going on—but they are not the end all, be all. Mind Body Connections counselors look to symptoms as guideposts that direct us to discovering the underlying root cause. At Mind Body Connections, we view the mind and body as being connected and in constant dialog. When that circuit gets disrupted, or the body is communicating a problem, we serve as interpreters and advise you on how to proceed. Below are some examples of challenges you might be facing: whatever your symptoms or issues, we are confident of our ability to guide you as co-collaborators in your recovery process.
