NAMASTE WELLNESS CENTER
A PLACE FOR HEALING
There will come a time in all of our lives when additional stressors require extra guidance and resources to allow us to effectively and confidently cope with life’s challenges. Whether you need support with improving motivation and performance, are interested in healing and self-discovery or desire to increase your overall wellbeing, reach out to Namaste. Have you been experiencing feeling more down than usual? Or, are you noticing that you are feeling more anxious or stuck? If you have recently noticed your emotions are more deeply affecting you or you have been struggling with concerns related to your career, stress, sports performance, trauma, grief, addiction, chronic illness, pain or other major life changes, Namaste can help. Namaste Wellness Center is here to help you overcome obstacles in order to grow, heal and reach your true potential.
At Namaste, our psychotherapists in the Chicago area come from a strengths-based approach. We will collaborate with you and help support you on your journey to create better work-life balance so that you can once again look forward to the goals that you are seeking.
“Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up."
At Namaste, we aim to treat the whole person. We provide effective evidence-based psychotherapy practices to help you reach your goals.
Our tailored approach is unique to each client and includes techniques from ACT, Adlerian, CBT, DBT, Existentialism, Gottman, Person-Centered and MI approaches. These therapeutic techniques, combined with cultural and trauma-informed care, help to increase awareness, motivation and renewed confidence to help encourage you to adopt new thoughts, attitudes and beliefs that better serve you. Therapy can guide you in changing habits, behaviors or responses that are negatively impacting you. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is a healing process and a journey that includes an individual, collaborative treatment plan. Participating in therapy does not mean there has to be a pathological cause or that you are unable to make necessary changes or adjustments on your own. Therapy involves making a commitment to yourself and your overall wellbeing. It includes making consistent, small changes that can help you accept, move through and cope with a multitude of feelings and experiences including a lack of motivation, feeling stuck, sadness, fear, or pain. The psychotherapy process is one that can foster growth, offer guidance and support to bring about the changes you are seeking. At some point in life, if we desire new results we all need a sounding board, an accountability partner, resources, or strategies to work towards gaining a new perspective or trying a different approach. Sometimes in order to change we need to make an active commitment and block off our calendar to process and reflect upon our lives and our goals. Therapy can help you do that. Research shows if we don't take a proactive role and schedule time for self-care and growth life can move fast and our goals can be pushed aside by other life responsibilities and demands. At Namaste, we are here to support you as you move closer to your goals. Keep in mind what Nelson Mandela said, "It always seems impossible until it is done".
"Meanings are not determined by situations, but we determine ourselves by the meanings we give to situations."
