Who We Are

Welcome to Camel City Counseling and Integrated Health! We are a counseling and integrated health practice for motivated high functioning people dealing with life.

We are an integrated care practice offering psychotherapy, nutrition therapy, and trauma-informed massage therapy. Our clients are looking for healing, growth, movement forward in their busy lives and oftentimes improved self-care practices. That's why we are the only practice in the triad offering a fully integrated model of care. When seeing one of our providers, you not only are treated as a whole person, but are gifted a customized individual health and wellness plan. All in a beautiful space rich in character and history.

We specialize in the perfectionist, the family struggle, the couple rekindling their desire, the trauma survivor, the hurting, the anxious, the body loather, the overachiever, the overcomer, the attention deficit, the highly sensitive. We believe that mental health is physical health, and vice versa. We see you and we care.

When you work with us, you will experience authenticity and integrity. We will sit "side by side" with you on your journey of change. We invite you to connect with us to learn more about how we dedicate ourselves to our clients. We take our level of service up a notch. We are modern therapists, nutritionists and healers that meet you where you need us.

Our passionate focus is meeting people where they are and walking with them toward their goals in a warm, relational manner. We will never give up on your success and wellbeing. We invite you to connect with us to learn more about how we dedicate ourselves to our clients.

COMPASSIONATE

We offer counseling/psychotherapy, nutrition therapy, massage therapy and yoga to ages 5+. When someone reaches out for help, we're here to serve, and we applaud those courageous enough to seek help - ANY help. We meet you in the struggle and stay with you until you don't need us any longer. From the beginning, we will create goals together, and develop a tailored strength-based plan to address your concerns. We will use your innate worth and value as well as the latest researched practices to improve your wellbeing.

CAPABLE

We offer a wide variety of services so that you don't have to run around town piecing together a plan for self care. You do not have to receive therapy in order to see our nutritionist or massage therapist. Our goal is to see people feel well and whole and that means offering several paths to healing. Whether your goal is working through trauma or simply relaxing your tired body, we're here for you.

COMFORTING

We see people as their WHOLE selves and treat each of you with respect and care. We are a weight neutral, anti-racist, inclusive practice. You are not just a number. You are a person, a family, a couple we care about.

What We Do

We are a unique practice due to our laser focus on helping people reach their maximum potential. Living life as humans is the fundamental foundation that binds us all.

Pain may be inevitable, but we can help you increase vulnerability, emotional intelligence, courage and self compassion so that you can avoid suffering. We help you lead from self, understand the impact of your injuries, and support you in performing at your peak. Our clients come with a clear idea of what they need and stay for as long as they want support in their growth. We don't just help you move through an immediate challenge. We help you deepen your existing knowledge and become mindful of your strengths. Here's how:

Counseling / Psychotherapy

Counseling / Psychotherapy

Living life as a human is joyous, painful, challenging, confusing, uncertain, peaceful, and wonderful. Why not make use of every possible resource along that way? We can help you navigate decisions, feelings, and relationships so that you can be clear minded, purposeful and thoughtful about your journey. It’s time to stop ignoring your struggles and fear of being judged, and grab hold of the help that awaits. Cue the Camel City Counseling team.

If this is a new experience for you, try to imagine the most emotionally safe space you can muster. Supportive, nonjudgmental, confidential, unbiased, and compassionate. Collectively, we are trained in a variety of therapies shown to improve your wellbeing including EMDR, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Brainspotting, Play Therapy, Mindfulness Based Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and more. You can come into this private inviting space in person or online to reflect, process, share, or resolve whatever is on your mind.

We see children as young as 5, parents, families, couples, and individuals who are here for a variety of reasons. You may be here to find out how to live a more meaningful life, manage your ADHD, reduce anxiety, manage depression, set better goals, improve your marriage, reduce your work related challenges, make better decisions, better manage your team of professionals, process grief/loss, or finally rid yourself of those difficult childhood memories.

We are your objective confidant who can look out for your true best interests and help you get to the root of any barriers to wellness. We tend to your needs using both the evidence based practices and art of psychotherapy. If you’re hesitating to reach out, we invite you to push through the fear or worry and see how one of our therapists can help you make change or find new paths to peace.
