The Whole Soul is a counseling agency located in Fair Oaks, California—a quaint community within the Sacramento region. Our therapists provide individualized counseling to folks of all ages, and take a holistic approach to therapy. We create a warm, inviting space for all clients to feel comfortable in working through unhealed wounds and other aspects of their lives in order to live authentically and feel connected to themselves, their loved ones, and their communities. The Whole Soul Counseling believes that all individuals, provided with the support and care they need, along with their own willingness and courage, can heal and grow and flourish in life. We are an inclusive agency that works with clients of all ages, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, religions, neurodiversities, and socioeconomic statuses. We provide individual and family counseling, along with group counseling. The Whole Soul believes strongly in the healing power of connection and compassion throughout our journeys.

I believe in the incredible power of resiliency within each of us. All of us experience pain and hardships throughout our lives; some of which are easier to work through than others. I feel that with the right supports in place, we can all heal our deepest wounds.

Life has a way of giving us more than we feel like we can handle, especially in adulthood. We tend to struggle not only with our past traumas from childhood, but we can also struggle with our current traumas within adulthood. It can be most difficult to keep our mental health a priority.

Someone once taught me, you can hear that you can do anything you set your mind to every day of your life, but if you do not believe you can, you won’t.
