Therapy is clinically proven to help support people struggling with a range of concerns: mental health, chemical dependency, relational, work, life stage transitions, grief, illness.
Our prescribers approach medication management holistically, working with individuals to examine whether medication is the right route to address specific symptoms or stressors. For that reason, medication management is often pursued in conjunction with broader therapy or counseling. Individuals who pursue medication management can be self-referred, or referred by a doctor, family member, or therapist.
Our Registered Dietitians may consult with individuals looking for support with a range of eating disorders or other nutritional concerns that can coexist with a mental health diagnosis. Sessions may address current eating patterns, past eating patterns, exercise, food trauma, body image, and more to help develop a personal/optimal relationship with food and body. Dietitians consider all relevant medical and dietary restrictions, and often work in conjunction with therapists, doctors, family members and treatment facilities as part of a whole person approach.
We offer comprehensive testing and assessment services for people of all backgrounds ages 16+. Performed by licensed psychologists in a safe and comfortable environment, these evaluations can help doctors, teachers, prescribers, family members, and individuals themselves gain a deeper understanding of cognitive, neurological, attention, and emotional issues. Assessments may involve a range of test measures, including interviewing and review of relevant records to bring new clarity to a person’s way of behaving in the world and aid in creating an effective, personalized healing and management plan. Referrals for assessments can be made by doctors, therapists, schools, counselors, or individuals looking to gain more knowledge about themselves.
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy
We partner with the experts at Institute for Integrative Therapies to offer Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP). This integrative approach can lead to powerful healing experiences and the development of new neuropathways, helping to create lasting change. Learn more about eligibility, typical course of treatment, and the cost of KAP services at www.iit-mn.com or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Acupuncture is an age-old holistic therapy based in East Asian Medicine involving the insertion of ultra-thin needles through the skin at specific points on the body. These needles help direct blood and qi (energy) to where it is needed to restore balance and heal. Acupuncture can be used in times of injury, illness, or wellness to treat many mental, emotional, and physical health conditions. Acupuncture is known to help with anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, substance use disorder, back and joint pain, arthritis, headaches, nausea, digestive problems, skin conditions, painful and irregular periods, hormonal regulation, respiratory and cardiac conditions, auto-immune disorders, and much more. Our practitioners also provide Chinese herbal medicine and tuning fork, cupping, tui na (medical massage) and gua sha therapies. Treatment options are available even for those who fear or dislike needles.
Wellness coaching is for anyone dedicated to making changes regarding their personal health or wellbeing. People often look to wellness coaching to help manage a major life transition, such as a birth, death, move, promotion, retirement, important event, or recent health diagnosis. Others come to wellness coaching seeking guidance and support to help them take charge of their health and happiness.
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work, in which a practitioner uses hands-on healing or hands hovering above specific points on the body. The practitioner guides the flow of energy - or "Reiki" which translates to "universal spirit (Rei) life force energy (Ki)" - through the body for stress reduction and healing. Reiki is used for general wellness as well as for specific issues. Reiki works by assisting to reduce stress, which in turn may create an environment within a person’s body where healing may more easily be facilitated. People seek Reiki to help with issues related to anxiety, depression, stress, excess, tension build-up, and chronic pain. In addition, Reiki may be effective with people who suffer from chronic headaches, insomnia, and problems of fatigue. Many people have found Reiki to be a complementary practice to other therapeutic modalities in their healing journey.
Reiki for Self-Care
You might not believe it, but you already have the ability to heal yourself – and you actually do it every day! Taking a course in Reiki for Self-Care will give you a “tune up” and the confidence you need to take your healing into your own hands. If you enjoy the results of your first course, sign up to learn Reiki for Friends and Family, and find out how satisfying it can be to support the people you care about in this very special way!
At LynLake we understand that your state of mind affects your physical body, your energy, your emotions, and even your behaviors. We offer Yoga Therapy as an option for clients seeking a holistic approach to their wellbeing. The goal of yoga therapy is to help you find balance in your body and mind so you can settle your nervous system, feel grounded, and gain a deeper connection to yourself. A typical yoga therapy session is done 1:1 and includes a blend of discussion and guided yoga practices. The most common yoga practices we use are breathing, gentle movement, meditation, visualization, mantra/chanting, and self-inquiry. The yoga techniques we use will depend on your specific needs and interests and will always be gentle and supportive. You will be given at-home practices so you can continue to use the techniques on your own between sessions.
Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback - a noninvasive procedure that measures a client's brainwaves and provides them with real-time feedback about how their brain is functioning. This is achieved through visual cues such as watching images/videos on a screen that shrink and expand, darken and lighten, or through audio cues with increases and decreases in volume. It aims to help teach clients self-control of brain functions by providing them information about how their brains react to certain stimuli. Over time, clients learn to recognize when their brain is in a certain state. They can then learn to recreate a desired state, such as relaxation and calm, or to avoid undesired states, such as excessive fear and anxiety. With the guidance of a trained clinician the brain is given the tools to retrain itself to respond more effectively to everyday situations. Extensive research in neurofeedback has found it to be effective in addressing issues with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), developmental trauma, anxiety, depression, sleep, and attention.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is like a cleanse and a massage for your nervous system. CST is a whole-body therapy, done fully-clothed, using very light touch to dial down the body’s stress response. This allows your nervous system to self-correct and makes it easier for your whole body to come to a place of balance. CST is helpful for stress, physical and emotional trauma, headaches, TMJ dysfunction, traumatic brain injury, back pain, and for clients who have tried everything else. CST can have profound effects on specific areas of pain, as well as your overall health. SomatoEmotional Release (SER) is an advanced form of CST which uses deep listening to the physical cues of your nervous system in conjunction with dialoguing. Combining these tools allows us to tap into your own inner wisdom to uncover what you need at that moment, to resolve trauma that has gotten trapped in your tissues. SER can support your therapy process and allow you to find resolution more completely, and with more ease.
Our trauma-informed massage therapy involves using a variety of techniques, movements and pressures to release tension and strain patterns in your muscles and connective tissues. Combining scientific knowledge with intuition, we work with your system to decrease pain, improve physical functioning, and support emotional healing and transformation. Each session is yours, and yours alone – meaning that you have the right to direct your treatment, including modifying or stopping the treatment at any time. A custom massage therapy session might include some work from specialized modalities such as Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT), trigger point therapy, myofascial release (MFR), Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), or CranioSacral Therapy (CST).
