Total Approach to Health, Healing, and Recovery.

Total Health Concepts was established in 1986 to serve as a Counseling Center with a holistic approach to health, healing, and recovery. Total Health Concepts has grown to incorporate trauma-informed therapy, eating disorders, gender identity, family systems, and movement therapy.

In more than 35 years, we have helped countless individuals of various ages and cultural backgrounds reach their true fulfillment.

Our success is founded upon addressing barriers, underlying issues, and core beliefs to achieve long-term well-being.


Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is useful for many types of situations that cause stress, anger, grief, and conflict. We empower clients to focus on their strengths and learn coping skills to address conflicts, build confidence, resiliency, and self-esteem.

At Total Health Concepts, we provide a comfortable, private, and safe setting. Our therapists will explore many different areas of trauma and healing. Clients develop a therapeutic alliance with their therapist to express thoughts, feelings, and difficult emotions.

To foster growth and progress, we address:

  • Boundaries, identity, and self-worth
  • Past traumas and present issues affecting life
  • Behavior patterns, beliefs, and coping skills

Couples & Relationships

Couples therapy can help at any stage of a relationship regardless of marital status, age, race, faith, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

Trauma-Informed Therapy

Understanding how past trauma impacts mental, behavioral, emotional, and physical well-being. Trauma-informed counseling addresses how negative events are stored in the body and impact physical and emotional health. We work on the ongoing intergenerational effects on the individual, family, and community. 

Our trauma-informed clinicians assist in developing strategies for identifying and coping with thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of a traumatic experience.

Our team helps individuals move towards a more positive sense of self and allows a connection to the world around them.

  • Gender-Affirming Therapy
  • Creating a Safe Space
  • Connection to Supports & Resources

Nutrition Therapy & Recovery Coaching

Eating patterns, body cues, and relationship with food can be complex and impacted by so many factors – such as social media, diet culture, self-esteem, medical diagnoses, and past or current trauma. Nutrition therapy compliments work done in individual therapy to promote holistic healing and restore a peaceful rhythm with food. We use a non-diet, weight inclusive approach that focuses on connections between food and feelings, addressing underlying issues, and learning to manage reactions to triggers that show up around food.

Our experienced team of Registered Dietitians are trained in eating disorders, gastrointestinal issues, sports nutrition, diabetes, and other health concerns.

Our Recovery Coaches offer support and training in:

  • Social Skills
  • DBT Skills
  • ADHD Executive Functioning Skills

Mindful Movement & Expressive Therapies

Trauma and emotions are stored in the body.  Movement and Expressive Therapies help identify, process and release feelings to reconnect mind and body. Instead of numbing and dissociating from feelings, these practices bring awareness to our physical and emotions needs and create positive coping methods.

Our therapists use various techniques to help release stored emotions and reduce stress and anxiety.

Mind-Body Therapies used may include:

  • Yoga & Therapeutic Movement 
  • Breathing, Meditation & Visualization
  • Art & Narrative Therapy
  • Reiki and Body Healing

Addiction Recovery & Support

Addictive behaviors often result in relationship difficulties, decline in physical health, and development of further mental health challenges. Addiction therapy can describe a wide range of interventions that treat unhealthy dependence and compulsive behaviors. Once on the road to recovery, Total Health Concepts can guide addiction free living by helping understand negative coping skills and creating healthier alternatives.

We address the underlying trauma of their addiction, work to change one’s social environment, identify relationship patterns, and assist in connecting to a positive support system.

Our team supports their recovery by addressing coping skills, impulse control, and codependency.

We work with addictions from a variety of approaches such as:

  • CBT / DBT
  • EMDR
