“The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surrounding." Kakuzo Okakura
At Wholetherapy, our clients’ health and wellness is our top priority. In order to live in accordance with our values, Denise and I have decided to respond to our surroundings by offering Virtual EMDR therapy. Change is difficult and the world in which we are living is giving us plenty of change to respond to. With this writing, I hope to ease the transition for all of us to continue our EMDR work virtually. We will be using an easy-to-use platform and will help you adjust to this format for therapy. We are passionate about facilitating healing and growth and want to ensure that you are able to continue on your healing journey with us during this challenging time. In a society that is calling for social distancing, know that you are not alone. We are right there with you and will continue to walk alongside you on your path.
If you have been to our office in Dartmouth, you know that Denise and I love a comfortable, safe, and clean working environment. We both have paid attention to detail in how our offices are decorated and appointed. We love the healing and grounding energy we feel when we walk into our space to start our day. We continue to work at creating a retreat-like feeling for both ourselves and our clients. As human beings, we all need a place where we can disconnect from noise and reconnect with ourselves. As responsible Canadians, we will all be spending more time at home in the coming weeks to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities. Creating and claiming your own calm, cozy home sanctuary is so important, especially now. In preparation for therapy at home, please consider the following in creating a safe, secure, and cozy working environment.
We thank you for your openness to and patience with this transition. We look forward, with gratitude, to connecting with you in this new way.
