Practice Description: Welcome to both Monterey and Fresno practices!

As a Holistic Health Psychologist/Practice Owner, I know there's a time and a place for medications, which is why therapists at the Whole Body Wellness Center do NOT prescribe. We are firm believers that you can overcome and relearn new ways of handling stressful life events or past traumas using holistic psychotherapy by understanding WHY you have the symptoms (physical or mental) and chipping away at those issues. Our approach to therapy includes holistic treatment, which means looking at the whole body perspective. This integrative approach helps us understand who you are, today, and how we can work together to reduce emotional, and oftentimes physical discomfort by understanding who you as a person from many different angles. Therapists at our Center will help you develop coping skills to help with the symptoms that you are experiencing, today, but ultimately we will be looking at why those symptoms have emerged from a greater issue and treat the underlying reason for the symptoms in the first place.

How we can help:
Are you (or both you and your partner) experiencing mood changes like increased irritability, anger or sadness, chronic pain/medical issues, troubled relationships, career or academic difficulties, changes in your health, or just plain, unwanted behavior?
We can help you discover the reason for these symptoms so you can reduce the re-occurrences in the future (triggers), discover the road blocks getting in the way of your personal growth and work with you to find a solution to your better mind and body.

By using a holistic, medication-free perspective (looking at the whole body, not just one symptom) to diagnose and treat current unwanted thoughts, feelings and behaviors, we can properly work towards being free of these toxic, uncomfortable and unnecessary ways of living.

All therapists supervised by Dr Marvin use an integrative approach specially tailored to meet the needs of your particular difficulties and symptoms and help you discover how your mental health struggles may be impacting your physical health by using a mind-body approach (holistic approach) to therapy.

Oftentimes, our nutrition, sleep and exercise habits (or lack thereof) can drastically effect the way we feel and, ultimately, operate. Taking a look at your daily nutrition may play a key role in your overall mental health and wellness, if you are interested in this addition to our therapy approach.

Using direct, yet compassionate and empathic approach, combined with your self awareness and experiences, let's work together to get you back to the life you once enjoyed, or create a new pathway for you free of unwanted thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

About the Clinicians:
Connecting the patient's mind-body symptoms, thus reducing physical pain and discomfort are the major focus of therapy. Some specialty areas include working with couples and individual adults experiencing anxiety and/or anxiety/panic attacks, depression or other mood changes, eating disorders, health or medical issues including chronic pain, obesity, and relationship difficulties.

We have experience working with a wide variety of clients/patients including children, adults and better, from private practice to incarcerated individuals and students to low socioeconomic status individuals.

We all offer a free initial phone consultation(under 15 minutes) to help both you and your therapist determine if its the right fit for you. Finding a therapist can sometimes be more difficult than therapy, itself. We want to ensure that you feel comfortable discussing your life with one of us.

Additionally, Dr Marvin has worked with couples for several years and enjoys being able to help the couple reunite and work together to solve unwanted behaviors and patterns that have, over time, been toxic for them and caused an inability for them to move forward together.

Happy health and wellness to you!
