Healing and Empowerment Programs at Better Wellness Naturally...

Are you ready for some really big, positive changes and don't know where to begin? Are you feeling sad, stuck, alone or overwhelmed?

We believe in creating a place of safety and support within a construct of healing and growth.


And group work has a very special magic about it when you are experiencing the benefits of the practice from a place of joy and safety.


Most of us are disconnected emotionally and sometimes we'll find ourselves reflexively recreating situations in which the emotional 'charge' of the experience was squashed or repressed.  We're stuck in our head or in our body and perhaps our heart doesn't feel quite right to us


Maybe the feelings were linked to approval, acceptance, or perhaps even survival. Maybe we don't even consciously remember what caused those feelings in the first place.

Nonetheless, the feelings and the emotions were there, and somehow, somewhere, they--we--are still reactive. 


And as adults, we may intentionally suppress or avoid our feelings and that, in turn, prevents real intimacy--with ourselves and with others.  We get stuck.  We aren't happy, we know we are capable of more.  We somehow find ourselves perpetually sabotaged and we cannot even consciously pinpoint why.


Which, in turn, can and often does create an emotional overload for many of us.  

Emotional overload can be exquisitely terrifying and all too often, we don't have a supportive network or a healing and cathartic space where we can explore our emotions and feelings without judgment. Life doesn't feel safe enough, so we hide, and more importantly, we limit our potential.


We can help You help Yourself.

Further, we can you help define a healthy way of being kind, compassionate, and 'just fine the way you are' in the moment as we engage our emotional healing and in incredible personal transformation and growth.


We offer a number of specialized groups through Better Wellness Naturally.  Our Signature group program is Empowered Transitions.


We also offer Empowered Transitions Retreats abroad!

In Empowered Transitions, we'll help you work through specific exercises to identify the source or origin of your unique emotional and physical challenges, as well as find and transform the subconscious blocks that are holding you back from the full realization of your personal gifts, talents, and strengths. 


You’ll heal holistically and you’ll thrive.

The Empowered Transitions Program runs in six-week cycles facilitated by Dr. Laura Garrison in the Sarasota office location.

In Empowered Transitions™ you'll meet yourself where you are in a supportive, growth-oriented group setting in preparation for making and embracing the big changes you're seeking.  The sessions are part group therapy, part Mastermind, and all based on positive, co-creation in a supportive environment.   Groups are limited in size and meet over the course of six weeks for 90 minutes- two hours each.  

The Empowered Transitions Retreatformat is offered either as a four or six-day program and likewise,

incorporates and integrates the innate wisdom and healing capacities of a person’s mind, body, and spirit.  As a live-in, retreat program, profound, at-depth healing and accelerated personal transformations occur quite rapidly.

"If we face our unpleasant feelings with care, affection, and nonviolence, we can transform them into a kind of energy that is healthy and has the capacity to nourish us.  By the work of mindful observation, our unpleasant feelings can illuminate so much for us, offering us insight and understanding into ourselves and society.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh.
