SHOULD I SEE HER? YES!

  • If you feel stuck in some way—mental, emotional and behavioral patterns repeating without knowing how to break the patterns. This can include patterns of anxiety, phobia, obsessive thoughts, destructive behaviors, relational issues, and trauma symptoms. Therapy can assist you in getting out of a “loop” and back on a path of growth, openness, and increased energy.
  • If you are looking for ways to activate your innate healing abilities.
  • If you want to find your own calling/purpose/unique gifts.
  • If you want to explore your own psychology and get to the root/source of things, letting go of core beliefs that may be holding you back.
  • If you are on a spiritual search and want to discuss the “big questions” with a fellow traveler.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM THERAPY?

  • A collaboration aimed at helping you reach your goals—with energy informed integrative psychology methods, this can sometimes be in just a few sessions, or it can be a longer exploration, depending on what you are looking for.
  • Empowerment. You should leave therapy equipped with a number of ways to cope with stressors and promote healing.
  • Confidentiality, honesty, openness, and genuine concern.
  • An integrated team approach with others at WholeHealth Chicago, as needed.

FROM DR. ROEKLE…

“Therapy is a great opportunity to explore our internal world and examine the thoughts and behaviors that would block us from open and honest living and being. Therapy is collaborative; we start where you want to start, and work together to reach your goals and identify new possibilities…which begin to present themselves as old patterns are shaken up.”

Our Services

At WholeHealth Chicago we provide our patients with access to providers who use an integrative medicine/functional medicine model. Functional medicine is a real paradigm shift in the practice of health care. Instead of the traditional disease-centered focus of conventional medicine, functional medicine practitioners apply a patient-centered approach that addresses the whole person–not simply isolated symptoms.

Stress Reduction for the Holidays

Wednesday, December 10th (6:30 – 8:30 pm) or Sunday, December 14th (12:00 – 2:00 pm) at Whole HealthChicago, 2522 N. Lincoln Ave, Chicago IL.

The Holiday Season can mean time spent with family and friends, work parties, social gatherings, and the closing of a year. Joyous occasions can also be stressful as to-do lists are longer and anticipation is greater. The closing of the year brings many deadlines, either professional ones that must be met, or personal goals to close the year. For others, the joy of the holidays is overshadowed by a feeling of loneliness, or the loss of a loved one.

Stress Reduction for the Holidays at WholeHealth Chicago will address anxiety and stress that manifest uniquely in each person. Mindfulness and meditation will be used to acknowledge the mental or emotional stress of the holidays, and reestablish a sense of gratitude, contentment from within, and a vision of yourself closing out the year. Gentle movements and breathing techniques will be used to see where we hold tension and stress in the body, and discover how we can open and unlock healing energy.

Pre-registration and payment upon registration is required, as space is limited. To register, call (773) 296-6700.  Price- $30

Renee Zambo is the instructor.
