Foundational
Values of Healing Connections Wellness Center

Foundational
Values of Healing Connections Wellness Center

Creating an atmosphere and relationship where every person feels seen, heard, validated, and supported throughout their experiences.

Healing Connections Wellness is a great place to find safe connection
  • Providing a space where people can find connection to safe people and helpful resources regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious beliefs, or income level.

  • Honoring and respecting each person’s humanity and the life experiences that shaped them to be who they are today.

  • Supporting and empowering people on their therapeutic journey that allows for transformation, healing, and growth.

  • Encouraging holistic wellness for every human we come into contact with.

  • Helping people connect to and engage with their body and mind in a new way that allows us to feel anchored in safety and deepens self-understanding and self-compassion.

  • Helping raise awareness and understanding about health and wellness.

  • Helping people disrupt old maladaptive ways of thinking and being and open and strengthen healthier and adaptive ways of being.

  • Helping people to see their inherent worth and value as they are, not as they have been defined to be by others.

  • Helping people understand trauma as anything that is too much for too long, too little for too long, or too much too soon and in these experiences, there was no one attuned to them to help them through it or to make sense of it.

May seems to be a busy month and many of us can feel this!!Our nervous system isn't built for constant calmness; it's always working to keep us safe and alive. When it comes to regulation, our goal isn't perpetual calm, but rather increase the capacity and ability to handle stress and tough situations. We are working to widen our window of tolerance versus being "stuck on" or "stuck off." When we have capacity, adaptive coping skills, and awareness, we can tend to live more easefully and peacefully as we are not living in a hyper or hypo-aroused state. ... See MoreSee Less

Making peace with food is about giving yourself permission to honor you hunger cues, to eat what you are hungry for, and to honor fullness cues. Abstinence does not work. When we forbid a certain food, we make it a “glitter” or “reward” food where we want it even more. This does not make it feel safe enough to stop eating this “forbidden” food because we do not know when we will get it again or when we will choose to restrict. Thank you Divergent Dietitian for sharing this important message! 💛How would your life look different if you ate when you were hungry, stopped when you were full, and ate what sounded satisfying? In grad school I babysat for a sweet family and took the girls out for lunch. I ordered a bagel with cream cheese and a frappuccino at the cafe. When the girl's mother learned what I had eaten for lunch, she reprimanded me claiming I'd set a bad example. Because of my rebel spirit, I quit and continued to eat whatever I wanted 😉 Now I am confident that the approach to food my own mother taught me was correct. It's likely that my body needed carbohydrate (ie energy). By responding to that need rather than ordering a salad I avoided 1) getting what I wanted [frap and bagel] after what I deemed was healthy or 2) approaching my next interaction with food ravenously hungry. Ignoring satisfaction would result in exceeding fullness. Do I eat ice cream for dinner every night? No. Do I eat ice cream for dinner on occasion? Yes. Following the guidelines, honor hunger, respect fullness, and include a variety of foods that result in satisfaction leads to health. That's true even if the person funding your grad school disagrees. -Bethany ... See MoreSee Less
