Understand how you will be empowered through mental health care.
Wellness is a process of gaining awareness and satisfaction from activities that promote fitness, nutrition, positive relationships, stress management, life purpose, and commitment to self-care.
At Calli, we believe that health and illness are not mutually exclusive, and that one can maintain wellness even in the presence of disease. Wellness is a strengths-based model that focuses on personal responsibility and self-empowerment. A wellness lifestyle consists of a balance of health habits that include adequate sleep, nutrition, productivity, exercise, purposeful and meaningful activity, social contact, and supportive relationships. Wellness is a persistent effort to stay healthy and achieve the greatest potential for well-being.
Holistic health is an approach to health care that focuses on all areas of human functioning. You are more than the sum of your parts, which includes your mind, body and spirit. The mind is an individual’s thoughts, emotions, and mentality. The body is an individual’s physical structure. The spirit is an individual’s core values and sense of meaning and purpose in life. Each of these parts is interconnected and is constantly affected by and affects the environment in which we exist.
When one part is stressed or out of balance, your level of wellness declines. Holistic health strives to reset this balance and/or maintain balance in order to achieve overall well-being.
We recognize that each client is unique. We honor this by taking the time to get to know you as a whole person.
It is our intent to make you feel safe and comfortable so that our work together will be successful. Therefore, we start by offering a warm and inviting atmosphere that feels like home. Next, we partner with you to identify the areas in your life that need attention. Then we develop an individualized treatment plan to direct the change you want.
We believe that even the smallest change in any aspect of your life has a profound and lasting impact on all other aspects of your life. Sometimes this part can be challenging because change is really hard. That is why we are there to guide you through the process.
Very nice place! My husband and I went to The Calli Institute this week and I was so impressed with everything! The staff at the front desk is very polite and informative and our therapist, Amanda is incredible! The atmosphere is very different than any other counseling place we have been and it makes a huge difference. We plan to return weekly!
I am amazed at how well the staff and nurse practitioner work to help me get my meds and appointments met at a proper and efficient time!
I was very pleased with the relationship that I developed with my therapist. She was very helpful to me while seeing her and will use her again if ever needed.
I have been to a bunch of different therapists, but this place is by far the BEST! It is so comfortable, it is like being in someone’s home! The staff is very respectful and my therapist, Nicole, is excellent! I am so happy I found her!
How Does Holistic Health and Wellness Impact Mental Health Care?
- Each mental health professional implements wellness and holistic health interventions differently. What you can expect are questions about your self-care – that is, what you do to take care of yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually. Spiritual self-care may or may not have anything to do with religion. It may simply be about what you value and where you find meaning and purpose in life.
- Your mental health providers will also make suggestions about how you can improve your self-care. This may be something as simple (or difficult) as decreasing or eliminating caffeine from your diet to volunteering in the community. Again, each individual’s needs and desires are unique. We are here to support and guide you on your journey.
Even the smallest change in any aspect of your life can have a profound and lasting impact. Whether you have a specific situation, condition, or challenge to address, or just want to stay healthy with routine counseling services, the mental health professionals at The Calli Institute are ready to work with you to provide support centered around you.
