Thrivemind Counseling and Wellness Offers ‘Whole-Person’ Approach

Thrivemind takes a holistic, or ‘whole-person’ approach, to mental health because we believe that the best way to live is not just to reduce the struggle or eliminate symptoms, but instead we believe that  you deserve a life where you thrive,” comments Priscila Norris, MS, LCSW, RYT and owner of the Jacksonville based provider.

“Our holistic approach allows us to work together at a deeper level so you can feel better and make lasting changes. In order to help you achieve your full potential, we apply our most basic value: that we must build upon your worth, dignity, and strengths. We tailor each session to address your needs and evaluate our progress every step of the way,” says Norris.

As part of their pursuit of providing mental and physical wellness, they offer yoga classes and mindfulness meditation coaching and workshops. These practices have been found through research to be especially helpful in treating mental health issues like anxiety, depression, PTSD, chronic stress, and insomnia, when combined with psychotherapy. In addition, this also helps to lower cortisol (stress hormone), increase dopamine (feel good hormone), reduce blood pressure, improve focus and reduce nervous system reactivity (such as panic and restlessness).

“Through breathing techniques and mindful movement, we create thoughtful and reflexive practices that promote both mental and physical well-being,” she adds.
