Come Home to Yourself ™
At Balanced Mental Wellness we address the root cause of mental health conditions rather than treating surface symptoms. Our practice operates from the belief that all individuals are created whole. We combine personalized holistic modalities with innovative medical treatments to promote healing and connection to self.
We believe that all individuals are created whole. By recognizing that wholeness and reconnecting with your authentic self, you’ll find alignment with your soul’s purpose. Many mental health conditions are the result of this disconnect between the mind, body, and soul. The discovery of your true self and integration in your life is sacred. We hold space for you to have a transformational experience and empower you to find healing and optimization of your health.
True balance doesn’t always exist, but Balanced Mental Wellness is aimed at finding your own inner healer, which is more powerful than any external intervention can provide. We specialize in integrative psychiatry and ketamine assisted psychotherapy by addressing the root of mental health conditions rather than treating surface symptoms with the traditional medical model only.
We combine holistic health interventions with cutting edge evidence-based practice that integrate the mind, body, and spirit in healing. Psychiatry practices are transforming to meet the needs of our modern society now more than ever.
If you are a seeker and interested in coming home to yourself, please join us in embracing this new healing and wellness initiative. This work is near and dear to our hearts, and we hope to meet you soon.
