WHAT WE DO:
Blue Sage Counseling and Wellness is a holistic psychotherapy practice that provides anxiety therapy, depression therapy, trauma therapy, and wellness services for adults in Charlotte, NC. We specialize in helping empaths and highly sensitive people protect their energy so that they can get back to doing what they do best: serving and helping others
WHAT TO EXPECT
Creating the Foundation
The first two to three sessions are focused on gathering as much info as possible with where you're currently at. We also create a crystal clear treatment, plan, and identify your inherent strengths and resources. We also focus on skill building, mindfulness, relaxation techniques, and emotional self-regulation to get you prepared for the deeper work.
You do not need to commit to the full program until the end of your first session.
The Working Phase
During the working phase, we do a deep dive into your relationship with your past and learn how false narratives were developed that are now driving your present negative behavior. We engage in hands-on exercises that enable you to release pent up traumatic energy and make room for functional, healthy behaviors. You'll also learn some tools to practice in between session to help you stay accountable. This goes waaaaay beyond just talking ya'll!
The Maintenance Phase
Sessions are reduced to bi-weekly to give you time to practice skills between sessions. From here, it is a matter of continuing to practice what you have learned and troubleshoot with your therapist. You also continue to be held accountable to your goals and are offered some course correction.
At the end of this phase, some clients discontinue while others reduce visits to every 4-6 weeks ongoingly.
Don't you hate it when you're researching therapists and you found one you love but you don't know how much they cost? Here at BSCW we believe that an informed client is a wise client and we want you to feel as comfortable as possible during this difficult time in your life so we take the guess work out of the process for you.
90 Minutes Initial Assessment (First Session) - $297
We know that therapy can be a scary process in the beginning. That's why we try to make it as easy on you as possible. This is our time to get to know one another and for you to determine if this therapeutic approach is for you. We ease into the process to make sure you're comfortable. Then, we put together a tailor-made treatment plan just for you and your needs. At the end of this session, you will then be asked to commit to the remainder of the program or we can go our separate ways, no judgment and no hard feelings!
1/2 Day Intensive - $997(1 hour therapist prep + 4 hour session)
Don't have time in your busy schedule to come weekly? Would you rather just rip the band-aid off and jump in with both feet? We basically do mostly what you would do if you came weekly but on steroids!
Ask your therapist to see if you qualify for our 1/2 and full day intensives.
50 Minute Individual Sessions - $197
All remaining sessions after the initial evaluation (occur weekly for the first 8 weeks, bi-weekly weeks 9-12, then as often you see fit).
Full Day Intensive - $1997 (1 hour therapist prep + 8 hour session)
THE BIG KAHUNA! Are you ready to dig in like you never have before? Are you ready to let go of pent up traumatic energy you've been carrying for your years? This full day intensive will allow you to enjoy one-on-one attention with a professional therapist without interruption. Must qualify.
90 Minute Couple or Family Session - $297
We welcome anyone to join us during your therapeutic process that might enhance your results...in fact, we encourage it! However, this will require a somewhat different approach. To accommodate for additional needs, longer sessions are required and typically occur bi-weekly.

WHAT IS HOLISTIC THERAPY?
Holistic psychotherapy is a mental health approach that focuses on the whole individual - mind, body, and spirit. According to holistic therapy, the source of your problems runs much deeper than what appears on the surface. During your initial assessment, we spend a precarious amount of time getting to know you, your specific needs, and develop a personally tailored treatment plan that targets your particular problems.
We look at everything - diet, exercise, relationships, finances, spirituality, family dynamics, etc. Literally weeks and months can be wasted in therapy when you're not working on the root of the problem simply because the approach is not designed to identify it nor are techniques designed to properly treat it.
Clients seek holistic therapy when they are: 1) ready to explore their problems on a deeper level, 2) are committed to do work both in and out of session, and 3) they're ready to break dysfunctional patterns once and for all!
You've been wanting to do therapy for a long time and you know you're overdue. Now is the time to take your power back and reclaim your God-given right to be mentally and emotionally healthy!
HOW LONG WILL I BE IN THERAPY?
The short answer is for as short as possible and as long as it takes. While no two clients are exactly alike, most clients are able to achieve desired results in as little as 2-3 months (exceptions do apply).
Treatment is complete when: 1) the root of the problem(s) has been identified, 2) your suffering no longer gets in the way of participating in everyday activities, and 3) you feel at peace
WHAT IF I'M NOT READY YET?
If you're new to therapy, not sure about holistic therapy, or you're still just browsing no worries!
Check out these Top 3 reasons clients choose us:
1) You've felt disconnected from your spirituality for a while and you're ready to get back on a path that connects you to your purpose and life's calling.
2) Our highly efficient, action-oriented approach (as opposed to just talking) is specifically designed to get you feeling better and back to your life as soon as possible. You could be (or may already have) thrown your money away on unhelpful therapy that either didn't help or made things worse. It's time to make an investment in yourself that works!
3) You feel like others don't quite understand what it's like to live life as an empath and the one-size-fits-all just leaves you feeling guilty for never measuring up. Here at BSCW we understand that your nervous system is wired differently and therefore you have different needs. Learn exactly what to do to protect your energy and take pride in being sensitive.
