ReChanneling works within a Wellness Model of ‘mental’ health. Rather than obsessing on disease, denigration, and deficits, wellness models focus on your character strengths and virtues that generate the motivation and persistence/perseverance towards recovery. The focus of the disease or medical model is on the problem. The wellness model emphasizes here-and-now solutions to alleviate the symptoms that affect your emotional wellbeing and quality of life.
We specialize in working closely with individuals through a customized, long-term program, designed for the complexity of that person’s personality. We believe one-size-fits-all programs are archaic and ineffective. Personal recovery is an individual process. Just as there is no one right way to do or experience recovery, so also what helps us at one time in your life may not help us at another. Any analysis must consider an individual’s environment, hermeneutics, history, and autobiography in conjunction with their wants, beliefs, and aspirations. Otherwise, the personality complexity is not valued, and the treatment inadequate.
We also facilitate small Groups and Workshops that focus on particular or interrelated issues. Our goal is to find the best fit for clients to feel safe and comfortable, sharing personal experiences and issues. The commonality of the participants is what makes a Group or Workshop work effectively. We have found collaborative sessions addressing anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and motivation issues highly beneficial. We also focus sessions on specific disorders such as social anxiety. For each session, we incorporate multiple approaches, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, positive psychology, exposure therapy, and other traditional and non-traditional supportive programs. Groups and Workshops take on personalities of their own and must be addressed with customized integration of methods.
