Wellness

God calls us to cultivate a healthy and hopeful life.

Practicing wellness and support is a priority for Christ Church, so that all have the opportunity to answer the call to wellness and cultivate a healthy, hopeful life with heart, soul, mind, and strength.

Journey Through Epiphany: Living Well With All Your Heart, Soul, Strength, and Mind

This Epiphany season (beginning January 12, 2020), the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina is joining with the Living Compass Spirituality and Wellness Initiative to offer a 28-day online daily devotional and wellness retreat, structured as you would expect any retreat to be, except you don’t have to travel to a dedicated space to participate – this encourages you to create the space within you. Join us as we take a faith-based approach to creating wellness intentions for the year ahead by reflecting on where and how each of us is called to be God’s light in the world. Learn more and sign up here »

Short-Term & Wellness Counseling

Mollee is a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). She is able to offer short-term counseling to children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families to address a variety of concerns, including anxiety, depression, anger, stress, work-life balance, insomnia, holistic wellness, life transitions, family changes, behavior and school concerns, self-esteem, grief and loss, and communication concerns. Mollee draws from several theoretical bases, including Person-Centered, Family Systems, Experiential, Mindfulness-based, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Mollee creates an intentionally eclectic approach that is tailored to the needs and goals of each individual, couple, or family. Should you choose to contact her for counseling, Mollee will work with you to identify counseling goals and determine whether short-term counseling is appropriate to meet your goals and needs. Mollee will work with individuals, couples, and families to navigate community providers if you determine together that short-term counseling is not appropriate for your situation.

Contact Mollee directly (see info on this page) to set up an appointment with her or request a referral to a community provider.

Navigation

If you are interested in counseling but would prefer to work with a community-based provider, Mollee can help identify and refer you to local counselors, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, and agencies that meet your treatment needs.

As the wellness director, Mollee can also partner with you to explore community resources that can meet your needs. She can help you navigate referrals to mental health counselors, continuing care retirement communities, in-home care providers, and more. To get started, contact Mollee directly (see info on this page).

Practices

Christ Episcopal Church recognizes that wellness is a path and practice, rather than a destination. As such, Christ Church aims to provide regular wellness offerings for parishioners of all ages.
