Strength in Motion and Whole Connection have come together in our efforts to offer high-quality affordable trainings for mental health workers, students, and members of the community interested in healing and wellness. Both centers were born from a passion to build communities of like-minded healers who are focused on helping clients from all walks of life thrive. We believe that ongoing training is a core component in keeping our therapists and healers engaged and continually growing. We believe in sharing these trainings with the broader community. Our mission is to bring in experts from various fields who will share their knowledge, foster important conversations, and bring broader awareness to important healing modalities.
Strength in Motion’s mission is to create a community focused on connection, healing, and thriving through providing a blend of therapeutic and movement offerings, trainings, and workshops for individuals, couples, families, and healthcare professionals within the Boulder/Denver area. SIM believes there is no one way to heal, and thus we aim to provide opportunities to explore what modality is best for the individual because we believe in holistic and collaborative approaches to healing.

Expand Mentoring and Whole Connection work together to offer team approaches with some of our clients. We have found that a team approach can greatly help our clients towards their goals and help them feel more connected. A lot of times there are tasks that either a mentor or therapist cannot always do or succeed on their own. If you are interested in having a team approach ask Expand or Whole Connection how you can find a team to support you.
