ABOUT THE FOUNDING OF LOVE IS HEALING

Founding Philosophies & Spiritual Underpinnings

All staff and interns receive weekly supervision, where they receive trauma-informed clinical support and shamanic reiki support. All staff and interns receive regular training (at least once a month) to enhance their work with clients.

Trauma-informed care centers everything we do at our agency. Love Is Healing was founded because spirituality has always driven the major decisions Magnolia has made in her life and she has found spirituality really adds to holistic healing. We know trauma isn't easy to live with, and, yet, all of us have it to some degree. In blending the spiritual and the intellectual, we are adept at "holding space" for clients to heal. Where there is shame, we meet with love.


Love Is Healing is meant to be used as a healing affirmation that embodies the spiritual Truth that "love is healing," for it is in love that forgiveness happens and we are able to truly heal; it is in coming to terms with all of life's happenings and accepting ourselves and others, despite life's adversities, that we are able to truly heal and integrate parts of self.

All clinicians are trained in shamanic reiki because we find that shamanic reiki healing embodies all the best practices that are recommended for trauma treatment, especially when coupled with a trauma-focused clinical lens: attachment-focused work, emotion-focused work, CBT, solution-focused work, psychoanalysis, multi-sensory interventions; it allows for the facilitation and integration of different parts of Self, as well as profound and lasting healing of Self and of challenging relational patterns we may experience.

Most spiritual traditions honor the wellness that is found in the balance between the body, mind, and spirit. For, when they are all in resonance, we experience peace in our lives. As practitioners and clinicians, we support client wholeness, in this way.
