Who doesn’t want to tap into their inner badass and live a happier more fulfilling life? That is exactly what Erin (LPC, EMDR Cert, HTP) and Crystal (LPC, RYT, RCYT, EMDR CIT) are doing that is revolutionizing therapy. When they started their practice; The Kali Institute, almost 3 years ago they didn’t want to be a typical counseling office, they wanted to truly connect and enrich people's lives in a modern way. They are doing just that by offering a diverse range of services via in person one-on-one sessions, group yoga classes, acupuncture and digital and remote webinars. “Therapy” today looks a lot different than it did 30 years ago, and it doesn’t have the same stigma. Current reports reveal that millennials are open and proud to invest time and energy into seeing a therapist. It isn’t seen as a weakness but rather a strength.
Today’s modern approach is more engaging than laying on a couch and talking about your problems; you dive into techniques to relieve stress, tap into your intuition, work on yoga and breathing techniques to address anxiety.“Millennials have a more open and broad understanding of health in which they include the body, mind, and spirit and are more open to other types of therapies beyond typical talk therapy. They want to see and experience real change, and respond to body based and researched approaches like Peak Performance and EMDR.” says Co-owner Crystal Hines, LPC, RYT, RCYT, EMDR CIT
