Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Welcome to the transformative journey of emotional connection and healing in your relationships. I'm Amy Wihelmi, and I am an Emotionally Focused Couples, Family, and Individual Therapist. I want to extend a warm and empathetic welcome to you and or your partner family as we embark on a path toward fostering deeper emotional bonds, understanding, and intimacy within your relationship. You feel far away from each other or yourself and I can help you reconnect. If you feel detached, unorganized, chaotic, scared, a mess, I can assist in helping you feel whole again. I also work from a holistic healing lens and see people with chronic health issues.

As an Emotionally Focused Couples, Individual and Family Therapist, my primary goal is to help you and your partner family children navigate the complexities of your relationship and work through the challenges that may be hindering your emotional connection. Relationships can be incredibly rewarding, yet they often come with their own set of unique obstacles. It's not uncommon to encounter miscommunication, feelings of distance, or unresolved issues that can create emotional disconnection.

My approach is rooted in the belief that emotional responsiveness and a secure emotional bond are essential for a healthy and thriving relationship. Through a safe and supportive therapeutic environment, I will guide you in exploring the emotional patterns and attachment dynamics that influence your interactions as a couple. By delving into the core emotions, needs, and vulnerabilities that underlie your relationship dynamics, we can begin to create lasting change and cultivate a deeper, more fulfilling connection.

I look forward to collaborating with you to build a foundation of trust, compassion, and understanding. Together, we can embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth, ultimately rekindling the emotional flame that initially brought you together. Your self or relationship has the potential for a beautiful transformation, and I am here to walk this path with you.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Holistic health therapy is an approach to healthcare and well-being that considers the whole person- body, mind, spirit, and emotions-rather than just focusing on individual symptoms or specific ailments. It is based on the belief that all aspects of a person's life are interconnected and that to achieve optimal health and well-being, one must address all of these interconnected aspects.

Key principles and components of holistic health therapy include:

Mind-Body-Spirit Connection: Holistic health therapy recognizes the intricate relationship between the mind, body, and spirit. It emphasizes that mental and emotional well-being can impact physical health and vice versa.
Preventative Care: Rather than solely treating symptoms or illnesses as they arise, holistic health therapy places a strong emphasis on prevention. This includes lifestyle changes, such as maintaining a balanced diet, regular exercise, stress management, and self-care practices.
Individualized Care: Holistic health therapy takes into account an individual's unique needs, preferences, and circumstances. Therapists work with clients to develop personalized treatment plans.
Natural and Alternative Approaches: Holistic health often incorporates complementary and alternative therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, meditation, yoga, and massage therapy alongside conventional medicine.
Emotional and Psychological Well-being: Mental and emotional health are considered integral to overall well-being. Therapists may explore issues related to stress, anxiety, depression, and personal growth as part of the holistic approach.
Nutrition: Diet plays a crucial role in holistic health therapy. A balanced and nutritious diet is seen as a foundation for good health, and food is often viewed as a form of medicine.
Environmental Factors: Holistic health therapists may also consider the impact of a person's environment, including their home and work surroundings, on their health.
Spirituality and Mindfulness: Some individuals incorporate spiritual or mindfulness practices into their holistic health approach as a means of finding purpose, reducing stress, and promoting well-being.
Physical Fitness: Regular physical activity and exercise are seen as essential for maintaining physical health and vitality.
Holistic Health Practitioners: Holistic health therapy may involve various practitioners, including naturopathic doctors, nutritionists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, therapists, and other specialists who work together to provide a comprehensive approach to care.
It's important to note that while holistic health therapy can complement conventional medical treatments, it is not meant to replace them. It is often used in conjunction with traditional medicine to provide a more comprehensive and patient-centered approach to healthcare. Individuals interested in holistic health therapy should consult with qualified practitioners and healthcare providers to develop a tailored plan that meets their specific needs and goals.
