We have a holistic model of healing which addresses the emotional, physical (both energetic and biochemical) and spiritual aspects of your well-being.
As Socrates once said, “A life unexamined, is not a life worth living.” Individuals come to therapy to change their lives. Our emotions, whether we are conscious of them or not, impact every aspect of our life. Working with a psychologist provides you with the opportunity to get to know who you authentically to help foster personal growth.
Start with an assessment to determine the baseline of your health with the BioScan assessment and functional blood chemistry analysis.

Reiki Level 1 Training, Sunday, August 25th, 4-7:30pm
Reiki, which means universal life force energy, is a Japanese stress-relieving technique that utilizes hovering hand positions and works with the chakra system. Reiki, founded by Dr. Usui in the late 1800's, helps to bring the body and mind into a state of relaxation in order to encourage the natural healing process. It is a wonderful, peaceful, non-invasive healing modality that can work alongside other treatments and can be learned by anyone. It is not meant to replace medical or psychological treatment. Reiki Level 1 consists of lecture (background and information on Reiki), an energetic attunement which activates the Reiki pathways and is given by the Reiki Master Teacher, and practice in giving and receiving Reiki. Reiki consists of 3 levels and at Level 1, Reiki works mostly on the physical level. At the higher levels, Reiki can work to promote healing on all levels of being (mental, emotional, physical, spiritual). The Reiki attunement is followed by a 21-day energetic cleanse, as you connect to the Reiki energy. Blocks and stagnant energy from the chakras are cleared, and you become more receptive to the energies around you. People have a variety of experiences with the 21-day cleanse as old energy is released, and self-care is essential during this period. Students of Reiki are encouraged to wait a few months in between attunements for Levels 1 and 2 (Level 2 practitioners can charge for their services) and a year in between Level 2 and 3 (Master Level) in order to practice and develop their skills. Reiki Level 1 students will receive a training manual and certification for the course. They'll also receive Bright Light meditation music and a Bright Light guided meditation. Reiki is not a religion; it is a practice that acknowledges the life force in all and works with the practitioner's intuition. It is recommended that a week prior to the Reiki Level 1 Training, students eat a clean diet, refrain from caffeine, alcohol, sugar and get plenty of rest in order to feel at their best for this training. Please email email@example.com with any questions. $225 to register (no day-of registration - class is limited in size) Register through this link: https://calendly.com/brightlight/reiki-1-training
