We take a holistic approach to the treatment of depression, anxiety, OCD, and phobia at Prairie Wellness. That means we’ll search for physical, as well as emotional, causes for your pain. We’ll use evidence-based techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help you heal. We may incorporate mindfulness meditation, yoga, exercise, or nutritional counseling in your treatment plan, if that's right for you. We'll help you learn to connect to your own, innate ability to find inner peace and wellness.
Life can feel out of control or out of balance when we're constantly stressed. We may experience stress-related symptoms like anxiety, anger, depression, high blood pressure, headaches, trouble sleeping, or gastrointestinal problems. Too much stress can cause strains in our relationships at home or work, exacerbate chronic pain, and lead to overeating or the misuse of drugs and alcohol. Learn to transform your relationship to stress with individual counseling or take our next Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction™ class. New classes start soon.
Our relationships with others can bring us great joy and deep sorrow. So much suffering comes when we try to hold on too tight, control things, or push people away before they have time to leave us. At Prairie Wellness, you’ll learn how to identify and break destructive relationship patterns and resolve issues with family members, partners, and friends. Dealing with a demanding boss or difficult co-workers? We can help with that, too. Just give us a call.
We all need food for nourishment and it can be a beautiful part of celebration and tradition. But sometimes we use food to bury feelings like sadness, loneliness, shame, stress, or boredom. This can create a pattern of excessive overeating that carries serious consequences for the mind and the body. Prairie Wellness offers counseling, wellness coaching, and workshops on topics like mindful eating and self-compassion to teach you healthier ways to manage your emotions.
Chronic pain not only hurts, it can lead to depression, anxiety, and other conditions that make life more difficult to manage. Recent studies show that practicing mindfulness meditation can be more effective than narcotics for managing chronic pain. Prairie Wellness offers a ten-week mindfulness-based program that can help you learn to significantly reduce the pain that you experience so you can start living your life again. Call today to schedule your assessment.
