The CLARA Healing Institute Story
The CLARA Healing Institute has been a dream in development for several years. Founded by Psychotherapist and community mental health activist Kristin Belkofer, the Institute aims to provide a holistic, neuroscience-informed approach to mental health and wellness, addressing the needs of individuals, families, organizations, and communities with interconnected levels of care. When appropriate, we use an integrated team model to provide a unique plan of services to support the health of your child, yourself, or your family.
We believe that the barriers that stand in the way of high-quality, personalized mental health treatment must be broken down. Insurance issues, long wait lists, and outdated stigma stand in the way of compassionate, effective, and sustainable care. We will help take the guesswork out of this process, and point you towards a healing path ASAP.
We believe we MUST take care of our mental health for the health of our communities, as there is no separation between mental and physical health. The body is a complex system where thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are inherently connected.
To meet these needs, the Institute believes in a mind-body connection with three ecosystems of services.
