Some of the Highlights of 2013
We are celebrating an anniversary. We have been in our new office in the Meadows Professional Office Park in North Kingstown for the past 2 years.
Frank is attending the CAGS program at RIC to obtain his LMHC which will allow him to accept BCBS in the near future. I'm very proud of him and his incredible accomplishments. I look forward to his graduation which is coming up soon. In addition to providing individual counseling in North Kingstown, Frank continues to work with adolescents in an alternative high school in Providence. He also facilitates an Anger Management group at the Silver Lake Community Center in Providence. We now have an ongoing Substance Abuse Education Group.
Congratulations to Frank who is a poet!! His poem was chosen by an local artist to collaborate on a piece of artwork which is now on exhibit at the Wickkford Art Association until August 26th.
We provide a monthly Life Coaching workshop: Vision Map Process which is well attended by a core group of women. We are facilitating a 12 Step Women's Retreat on September 21& 22 in Voluntown, Ct. and Developing Conscious Relationships on October 26 & 27.
I continue to use EMDR in my practice with my clients and I'm getting amazing results. I joined an EMDR supervision group. I received my Hypnotherapy Certification. As a DOT qualified SAP, I worked effectively with people who needed substance abuse counseling and treatment. As professional interventionists, we were able to help several families learn more about substance abuse and help their loved one get into treatment.
As therapists, we believe in doing our own work. This summer, we were invited by our spiritual teachers to go on another shamanic journey in the Amazon Jungle for 12 days. It was life changing for me.
We are offering Biomat therapy which is huge on the west coast. It is an awesome healing tool for pain, anxiety, weight loss and sleep. We have become distributors for the BioMat and I recently made the Emerald Executive level. We presented the BioMat at the Women's Expo and the Wellness Expo. We plan to do a the APHA conference in Boston in November and the Small Business Expo on October 2, 2013. We have some wonderful distributors signed up as well.
Our daughter, Gabriella, a Student Ambassador for People to People Ambassador Program, traveled through five countries in Europe this past June representing the US. We organized some successful fund-raising events and she worked hard toward her goals. We wish her much success and happiness as she begins high school this year.
We are expanding Healing Arts to provide more holistic and integrative services such as Reiki sessions, hypnosis, healing circles, Biomat Therapy, Expressive Arts, Sound Therapy, Life Coaching, Meditation and Mindfulness classes. Our plan is to offer services and products we believe can help others to heal.
We are working on social networking plan: our website, Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter. We started a monthly Newsletter in April and a newsletter will be coming out in September. We hired for a fee-for service licensed therapist to work in our practice who will start in September.
Another goal we have is to simplify our business by getting on Therapy Notes which we haven't started yet.
Thank you for your ongoing support. We wish you much healing and peace in your journey. We are looking forward to enjoying Fall in New England.
Maria and Frank Sorensen
