Seek and You Shall Find
A Mission to Refresh and Restore
Why We Work for You
Are you here for a reason?
As believers in the "we find what you seek" philosophy, there might be a specific reason you found our work.
Our philosophy... We believe that treating everyone, including ourselves, with unconditional love, benefits the giver and the receiver. We judge no one and believe that even the worst things can turn out to be the best things, as crazy as that sounds. There's more, but you get the idea. You're safe here.
Second, we do holistic stress relief. This means we help you find your happy place and help you find your way back when you lose your way.
Third, we respect mainstream culture. We respect the medical community, business community, psychological community, blue collar, white collar, striped collar, and rainbow collars. Again, everyone is respected here.
Fourth, we're here to help you find you, to release your parasympathetic nervous system and guide you out of fight or flight.
Fifth, We have market value rates but have never turned anyone away because they cannot pay for services. It seems sometimes that those are the people who need us most. I received free sessions and traded for them in the beginning and look how it worked out!
Sixth, we formed a nonprofit because we felt being a nonprofit would help us reach more people in many ways.
Strengthening the fiber of our community
Our mission is to release people from vulnerability and return them to control over their lives. Vulnerability comes in many forms Vulnerability almost always comes from some form of toxic relationship and almost always results in losing your personal power. I was in one, raised in them, and lost my personal power to them. Through holistic means, my life is now full of loving relationships. Had I known then what I know now, I could have saved my marriage and saved my family from many years of turmoil. Although, had I not had to find my way through that mine field blind, I would not have learned how to guide others through their challenges.
We don't do religion so please speak with your pastor about religion. We don't do medicine, so if your cancer vaporizes into the universe once you find it no longer serves you, ask your doctor where it went. I have no idea. I do know many people who have put their foot down and lost their health issues. One person you might know too, Theodore Roosevelt. He was stricken with asthma as a child. One day, he decided that his mind was stronger than his body and well, you know how that turned out.
I don't know how our work will benefit you. Through a bachelor's degree in Psychology from Michigan State University, 55 credit hours of health science classes and now Master's degree work in Strategic Communication at Purdue, all the while obsessively seeking quantum physics education, still, it all comes down you feeling sound, grounded, safe, and proceeding with faith in your future, and lessons of your present. Our work makes that process much easier to navigate!
Why we choose this work.
We believe that we are all in this experience together. Choices we make, actions we take, affect everyone else in it. We are in sync with each other. We believe we have an obligation as humans to other humans, to everything in our environment, and beyond, to operate at the highest level of functioning that we can. If we can show others how to increase their functioning, assist in releasing them from their vulnerability, our community is going to increase its functioning. Boosting business, improving services, less road rage, happier employees, happier families, less crime, more fun! There is only one road to a better place, the first step is within us. The next is where we work. See the Corporate Culture page for more on that.
Before you go there, I found a wonderful example of how we affect each other. Have you heard the term "entrainment?" This explanation of the term works for our purposes.
What is Entrainment ? - Be Well by Dr. Frank Lipman
May 10, 2010 - The article tells us that our body contains an autonomic mechanism that syncs us up with strong, external rhythms, pulses or beats, a phenomenon known as entrainment. We are not aware of it most of the time. The relationship between the external rhythms and our inner rhythms or pulses is inseparable.
Some of the work we do is a way to help others navigate their trauma because some of struggled alone through theirs. We believe that each experience holds a lesson. We help you remember that while you sort through yours.
