Welcome to Horizon Integrated Wellness Group, PLLC! We believe, that something beautiful is always on the horizon, everyday is a new beginning, and the best is yet to come! Horizon Integrated Wellness Group, PLLC was the vision developed by the owner Mary Affee.
It was Mary’s vision to have a mental wellness practice that recognizes not just the mind, but the many parts that make up our most optimal self, like exercise, balanced lifestyles, nutrition, healthy relationships, and most importantly, the ability for one to find one’s own creativity to empower them with acceptance in who they are or who they want to be. We strive to make our mental health services a collaborative process with our clients and therapists. Because Mary is a skilled and trauma informed clinician, she developed a trauma informed climate that guides the philosophy and continuity of care at Horizon.
We understand that therapy is a unique and intimate relationship, and we recognize the many feelings and the stigma associated with reaching out for guidance and support whether it’s for an individual or for a child/teen, we are solution-focused practice and believe that everyone has the innate to reach their goals. I am delighted you are here and we welcome you to our practice!
Mary’s vision also included having a Play Therapy Center and Tween/Teens Center that considers the sensitivity and uniqueness of the biological, social, and emotional developmental phases of children and adolescents. We have wonderful and culturally sensitive playroom to address all childhood challenges from anxiety, trauma, sexual abuse, aggression, ODD, ADHD, and other behavioral issues. Horizon’s subscribes to the belief that a child or teen’s behavior is an outward expression of their inability to express their hurts, rejections, fears, and worries. Our practice is dedicated to providing young clients with therapeutic approaches filled with expressive art and play therapy modalities that are child/teen sensitive, developmentally appropriate, with special consideration and sensitivity to cultural and gender differences/ gender variances.
We believe in working closely with the families of our young clients, as research continues to demonstrate that the best therapeutic outcomes for children are when parents are involvement in the healing/therapeutic process. We work with our young clients by assisting them to develop healthy emotional expression, develop the internal and external resources/coping skills to decrease/eliminate negative behaviors, while also assisting families to embrace this delicate and challenging time.
