Bethesda, MD, September 19, 2010 –(PR.com)– Demand is increasing for holistic health care, as more people seek an alternative to the traditional model of medicine. Bethesda’s newest mental health resource, A Quiet Journey Counseling, uses a whole person approach to mental health. Counselor Tom Tsakounis, a Licensed Counselor, uses a variety of therapies and technologies to treat his clients in mind, body and spirit.
“I embarked on this journey over 10 years ago after my experience with medical school proved not to be the path to wellness that spoke to my heart,” said Mr. Tsakounis. “I yearned to explore a more holistic and balanced approach to mental health and well-being.”
A Quiet Journey Counseling focuses on using a holistic approach to help patients struggling with sexual identity issues, including adolescents and the LGBT community. Mr. Tsakounis works with patients seeking help with other issues as well, including depression, PTSD, anger management and bereavement. Family, couples and group therapy are also available at A Quiet Journey Counseling, with programs and payment schedules individually tailored to fit the patient’s needs.
“I enjoy sharing my experience and training with my clients,” says Mr. Tsakoumis. “Good health has just as much to do with the spiritual and emotional being as it does with the physical being. Mental health is equally relevant in the journey toward wellness.”
Through the use of technology, therapy is available for individuals, couples and families. A Quiet Journey Counseling offers distance therapy by email, phone and video conference. Online counseling ensures that clients can fit the counseling they need into a busy lifestyle. Through the use of technology, A Quiet Journey is able to help clients who live in remote areas, are overseas, or may simply require a higher degree of anonymity. Mr. Tsakounis makes home visits to treat patients in Bethesda and the surrounding area who may be unable to visit his office. This kind of therapy is on the cutting edge of counseling practice.
“Through the use of modern technology and by making house calls, I’m striving to reach people in need of counseling regardless of their circumstances,” says Mr. Tsakoumis. “Some clients may be differently abled, unable to reach my office due to distance or scheduling, or concerned about maintaining their privacy. Online counseling and home visits allow me to treat these clients in the way that makes them most comfortable.” Mr. Tsakoumis’ website has recently been Verified by the Online Therapy Institute. The OTI Verified seal indicates Mr. Tsakoumis follows the OTI Ethical Framework for the Use of Technology in Mental Health.
Mr Tsakoumis is also a pioneer in Psychotherapeutic Feng Shui. This new type of therapy is an additional treatment option available at A Quiet Journey Counseling.
“Each of us is called to a unique journey which we know as life,” said Mr. Tsakounis “I believe it is important to recognize that a client is more than just a mental health issue, a client is a whole person, body, mind and spirit.”
A Quiet Journey Counseling is located in Bethesda. Tom Tsakounis is a Nationally Certified, Distance Credentialed and Licensed Counselor, Master Reiki Practitioner and is trained in a variety of therapies.
