Non-traditional services to help you heal from trauma and live your best life.

At Family Nurturing Center, our Holistic and Wellness Services help give you the tools to overcome this. The service offers non-traditional approaches to healing that are rooted in trauma-responsive care and have an overarching foundational approach to incorporating a variety of interventions to heal your mind, body, and soul. Participants can use these services to complement other more traditional services, such as counseling and medication, or on their own.

We strive to offer a variety of holistic and wellness services with carefully selected instructors who can assist you and your family in your journey towards healing. The schedules change quarterly, and new classes are added on a rotating basis.

What’s Weighing You Down?

Change your Mind to Change your Body – 6 week online class

The new year turns our thoughts to self-care – better eating habits, exercise, meditation – things like that. This class will focus on the thoughts and feelings we have associated with food. For some of us eating is our comfort, our stress relief, our way to socialize. We will look at our “resolutions” about what we “should” do and focus on what we are ready to do. Learn to let go of what’s weighing you down, stop carrying the heavy load, release your pounds of pain. We will support each other as we change our relationship with food and with our body shape & size. Emotional Freedom Techniques, informational talks, self talk, journaling and mindfulness exercises will be included.
