HOW AWOB GOT IT’S NAME

A Tribute to Two Movements

“A Way of Being” is a dual tribute to both Carl Rogers (Creator of the Human Potential Movement) and to the Mindfulness Movement.

Tabitha had been looking for a name for her practice for years when one day she was assigned a couple of books by Rogers to read for her Counseling Psychology program — chief among them was “A Way of Being.”

 

“Rogers had a great optimism for humanity and each individual’s power to change and improve their life.  He also embodied values of authenticity, empathy, and compassion in his work that were qualities that I wanted to bring to my practice.

Mindfulness, which is a core part of mind-body medicine and movement practices, was also reflected in the idea of ‘being’ rather than ‘doing’.”

-Tabitha

 

In addition, the name reflects what A Way of Being has become — a place to reflect on our ways of being to see if they serve us and to adopt new ways of being that can transcend old beliefs, habits, fears and emotional patterns so that we can finally embrace our greatest potential for health and well-being.

OUR CORE VALUES

HEALING PARTNERSHIP

AWOB believes that we are better together.  The best healing outcomes result from a relationship that values you as an intelligent participant in your own healing process.  You provide the goals; we provide you the roadmap to get there and possibilities for health that you may not have even known were available.

INTEGRAL HEALING

 Our integral model of healing includes mind-body and integrative medicine approaches but also goes beyond them.  Healing is explored as a human journey of learning to integrate and heal all aspects of our lives so that we can access our full potential to be healthy, wealthy (abundant), happy and wise.

EMPOWERMENT VIA EDUCATION

Our goal is to provide the tools and knowledge you need to feel empowered in your own health and well-being.  This means letting you know WHY we are taking a certain approach and encouraging questions so that you can take a more active role in your healing process.  You always have the right to say “no” or explore alternative solutions.

SUPERIOR SERVICE & ATTENTION

Instead of spending 13 minutes or less with you and going into see another patient or throwing in some needles and leaving the room, Tabitha spends the ENTIRE session exclusively focused on you.  She keeps a small practice in order to give superior service and personal attention.

CARING RELATIONSHIP

We care about you having the tools you need to create the life you want -- and we can't wait to celebrate every milestone with you on the road to creating the health and well-being you dream of.
