Who We Treat
At Restorative Alternative Wellness, we treat people from every background, faith, ethnicity, and culture.
Dr. Gina has a Christian background in addition to her clinical certifications, so for those who want Christian counseling that is available. All of our providers work with people from any faith background, or those with no religious beliefs. Self-reflection and mindfulness practices are encouraged for everyone though, as they are good management tools for your mental health (journaling, yoga, meditation or prayer).
What We Treat
We see individual patients, family units, and couples, from ages 10 and up. Each of our providers has a slightly different set of specialties, so when you first come in our staff will try to place you with the best fit for you. All of our therapists are well-seasoned and have worked with a very wide range of issues, so if you are unsure who would be the best fit call our front desk office and we should be able to direct you.
What to Expect
Before you come in, there is some introductory paperwork that includes some family and health history information, and some self-assessment testing that allows your therapist to prepare your first session in advance. The first session is typically around 90 minutes and gives you plenty of time to get to know each other and work together on a treatment plan. After that, patients will have weekly appointments for the first month to give time to build new habits, and typically after that appointments would step down in frequency.
We also have the option of teletherapy/video therapy services if requested. The paperwork to get started is the same, and teletherapy is available in 30, 45 or 60 minute increments just like regular face-to-face therapy.
Beau is our little fancy boy, he’s a Phalene Papillon (a breed variant with floppy ears) who was also a rescue from an OKC-area animal rescue. He’ll always be the one to bark out a greeting, but he’s very friendly… he just has to announce your entrance! He’s a little skittish at first since he’s also a rescue, but he loves to come cuddle on the therapy couch when he’s allowed to. He’s the fluffiest and a little androgynous.
Our lovely rescue greyhound Flora is our supermodel, but she’s also the most relaxed and gentle dog you’ll ever meet. Always chilled out and affectionate, she does have her own case of PTSD from being a former racing dog. Now she has all the love and attention in the world! (Even if she is still scared of thunderstorms.) She’s our fast and furious couch potato, she’ll laze around all day but can still hit top speed when she goes outside for a sprint.
Miss Bossy Cat
Bossy, Boss Baby, Boss Lady, our little feline resident goes by a lot of names, all of which feature her most notable trait: she gets what she wants! She’s only been a member of the pack since late July 2018 when she was 8 weeks old, so she’s the our youngest resident. She is very social for a cat though, often coming to greet patients (especially cat-lovers). She loves being the center of attention and is even sometimes okay with belly rubs!
