Get To Know Us

At WholeLife, we are committed to helping patients achieve optimal mental health and wellness. We specialize in providing counseling and therapy services to adolescents and adults who are experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, life transitions, attachment challenges and distress in relationships. We work with parents and children to offer practical feedback and skills to help them move toward harmony and understanding.  We believe in a holistic approach to mental health, which includes the use of evidence based techniques as well as holistic resources. 


To expand our ability to assist our clients with greater wellness, we have established the WholeLife Network. The WholeLife Network was formed as a response to the overwhelming scientific research demonstrating the positive effects of fitness, nutrition and spirituality on mental health.  We have partnered with certified fitness and nutrition experts and faith-based ministries to develop and offer wellness programs for our clients and our community at large. Patients are able to add any or all of these services to their treatment plan. Our goal is to support you on your unique journey to achieve your goals.

Patient Testimonial

I started going to therapy in order to get help and work through hard things in my life, but it has ended up being so much more than that. I have learned valuable skills to help assess everyday problems and I have learned to have a new outlook on life. I am a completely different person than I was the day I started therapy and I owe that to Mrs. Higgins.
