OPEN CLINICopen clinic

Middle Way Health Open Clinic is open on a Drop-In basis upon availability of therapists. It is a walk-in counseling clinic, designed as a way for NEW clients to meet with a therapist without a scheduled appointment. Sessions are available in Counseling, Coaching & Consulting.

Many individuals feel overwhelmed with the process of beginning therapy, and it is completely normal to feel this way. Sometimes beginning the therapy process means waiting two or more weeks for an initial intake appointment. At the Open Clinic, you are able to directly address your presenting concerns immediately and without the commitment of a pre-scheduled appointment or commitment to long-term therapy. It is for people dealing with a difficult situation or acute challenge; for busy people who don’t always know their schedule, want to meet with a therapist right away, or just want to try it on for size.

The Middle Way Health Open Clinic is located in Midtown Sacramento (across from McKinley Park) at 708 Alhambra Blvd., Suite 100, Sacramento, CA 95816. The attending therapist will meet with clients in the order in which clients arrive and sign-in at the front desk during Open Clinic hours. There will be a few short forms that you will need to complete. The Open Clinic is private-pay only and does not accept insurance. Payment may be paid by cash, check or credit card.

Open Clinic hours are Monday through Saturday, 9am to 5pm. Feel free to call ahead of time to verify clinician availability. (916) 492-9007.

*Middle Way Health Open Clinic is not an emergency room facility. If you are experiencing an emergency, call 911 or go to the closest emergency room. You may also contact the local crisis hotline: 916-368-3111

MINDFULNESS

Mindfulness is defined as moment by moment nonjudgmental attention to what is happening. Through sitting still and being alert we calm our mind and body and develop clarity, balance and focus. Mindfulness Meditation is useful to help treat stress, chronic pain and anxiety. It is adaptable to any religious tradition and non-religious approaches.

For Mindfulness Practitioners, contact Middle Way Health or visit our Staff Page.

HYPNOTHERAPY

Hypnotherapy is an ancient technique that uses deep relaxation coupled with positive suggestions to reinforce positive habits and extinguish negative habits. Deep Hypnotherapy can also be used for spiritual and psychological journey work where people meet archetypal energies and figures that promote healing and guidance.

The transformative style of Hypnotherapy offered at Middle Way Health assists the client in re-patterning the underlying cause of our suffering buried deep in the subconscious in order to turn our pain into joy.

For Hypnotherapy Practitioners, contact Sue Marshall or Judy Lynn Taylor.

SHAMANISM

A Shaman is a person who can alter their perception with percussive sound and enter into the world of non-ordinary reality, come into relationship with the compassionate helping spirits, and together with those spirit allies bring healing and information into ordinary reality for the client.

Receiving shamanic healing from a Shamanic Practitioner can bring your spirit body into harmony – a harmony that radiates through your entire Mind-Body-Spirit being. With soul retrieval, soul loss can be restored. With Extraction Healing, your spirit body is cleansed of ‘other’ energies. And with a complete healing program, your feeling of balance can be restored.

Have you been bouncing around from healer to healer looking for help? Many people try different methods of spiritual healing before giving shamanism a try.

Shamanic healing can offer answers to:

Why am I stuck?
How can I satisfy this spiritual hunger?
Why do I hurt?
Where can I go for help?

MOMMY MOOD

Many people think a “good mom” is someone who denies herself everything for the sake of the children, but there is nothing we can give to our child that is more important than ourselves. More than what you teach your children, they will learn from what you model for them. We all need help sometime.
