About Nancy Beaver

Individual Therapy

Your therapist will hold a safe, confidential, and encouraging space for you to explore moods, memories, feelings, thoughts, behaviors, and goals in order to feel empowered, enlivened, healed, and whole in your life.

Couples' Therapy

Although all couples have a unique dynamic, there are often themes that come up that may cause suffering, confusion, withdrawal, and even fear or hopelessness at times.

Family Therapy

This form of therapy is for those seeking assistance in working through issues that have an impact on each family member. Issues could include grief and loss, mental illness of a family member, parent-child relational difficulties, and significant family transitions.

Child & Adolescent Therapy

Children may need to address a range of concerns including anxiety, depression, past abuse or trauma, behavioral difficulties, adjustment issues, grief and loss, divorce, school related problems, or relationship difficulties. We serve children age 8 and above.

Life Coaching

Life Coaching helps functional people achieve their personal and relationship goals. The art and science of coaching is to facilitate success for the client without providing advice or “professional opinions”.

Dream Work

This is an important therapeutic model offered by therapists in our practice. It falls within the fields of therapy, personal growth, and spiritual direction and is offered within individual sessions as well as in groups.   

Journal Therapy Groups

These groups use writing to help reimagine, remember, and discover personal truths. Telling necessary stories and processing painful experiences while sharing in a safe place that can lead to healing in surprising and healthy ways. 

Spiritual Direction & Clergy Groups

We believe, as stated in 1 Thessalonians 5:25, that we always have an eye toward the person as a whole, body, mind, and spirit, and that a person’s psyche is not separable from their spiritual world. 

Speaking & Events

We are available for speaking at your community, church, or small group events.  Click below to learn more about the topics we can cover.

Retreats & Workshops

From a day long journal therapy workshop to a family parish weekend, if you have a group that would value a day or a weekend away we can help you!

A message from our director

I want to personally welcome you to our practice of therapy and coaching here at Wholistic Therapy and Coaching Center of the Midlands.

We are a group deeply dedicated to our clients’ mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health and healing. Perhaps it is a daring thing to say but we believe in the transformational potential of our clients and over the 20 years that we have been together as a group, we have seen first hand many transformations.  It is exciting, challenging, and rewarding work. I believe we would all say there is nothing we would rather be doing than this work we are called to do. Every therapist here practices not only with expertise but with the utmost integrity and ethical behavior. Someone once said you change the world one person at a time.  This is the way we participate in changing the world. 

Our building is a serene, beautiful, and welcoming place. Clients sometimes come a few minutes early just to sit and breathe, listen to a little soft music, perhaps have a cup of coffee or water, and prepare themselves for their session. 

You are welcome here. We are honored you have chosen us.  If there is anything we can do to make your experience exactly what you need, please let us know.

Your total well-being

Among all our practitioners we have a wide breadth of experience, knowledge, and skills that we have been offering in the community for more than two decades. We even discovered that among us we have more than 200 years of experience under one roof!
