Creating a Healthy Mental Balance

Fostering mental well-being through advanced neuroscience techniques and progressive therapies

For most of her life, Michelle Fitzhugh has been passionate about being a safe place for people as they walk through joyous and difficult seasons of life. This led her to become a counselor and open Redeemed Life Counseling Group.

“My goal, my heart and my passion with Redeemed Life is for it to be a place for the hurting, the traumatized, the sad, or anxious, whoever it is - couples, individuals or families - to come and have their needs met in the areas of mental health and emotional growth,” she shared. “We want to offer all that in their own town and in this space that's easy for them to access.”

Fitzhugh and her team use progressive approaches and stay on the cutting edge of advancements in mental health to best benefit her clients with a custom treatment plan. 

“It’s so important to understand that there are now mental health tools that didn't even exist, or certainly weren’t talked about or widely known, 10 years ago that can give people freedom in the areas of anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and general trauma they've experienced in their life,” explained Fitzhugh.

The Redeemed Life team continuously works to integrate neuroscience techniques into therapies. Neurofeedback, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Brain Spotting are just a few techniques currently utilized by counselors in conjunction with other therapeutic elements best suited to each client. 

These therapies use focused techniques to retrain the brain to function more effectively and in more appropriate patterns, which facilitates healing. Clients can work through trauma, anxiety, depression, behavioral and sleep disorders, headaches, seizures, cerebral palsy, and conditions on the autism spectrum.

“The goal is having full body healing with people working from the inside out and from the bottom or lower brain to the top … those parts of us that are unconscious or subconscious and hurt to the things that are conscious,” said Fitzhugh. “We know through research that it is the best way for people to get complete healing.”

Another therapy, Mental Health Massage, provides a safe place for appropriate physical touch to help the body relax, release stress and tension, and suppress stress hormones while releasing good hormones such as oxytocin, dopamine and serotonin. These therapeutic massages can benefit anyone, especially those struggling with infertility, postpartum depression or anxiety, terminal illness or other difficult life situations.

Redeemed Life has fully equipped play therapy rooms and certified play therapists, provides FDA-approved ADHD screenings and assessments, and has therapists trained to work with a new ketamine-assisted therapy for another area of healing for the brain.

By serving children and adults with customized therapy plans, Redeemed Life therapists strive to create a relaxed, welcoming environment for everyone. 

“One thing I hear consistently from people who come into our office is that they love the way it feels, that they feel welcome and safe here,” said Fitzhugh. “We are a faith-based counseling center in the sense that our therapists share like-spiritual beliefs. However, we also meet with people of all different beliefs and backgrounds, including those who don't claim any spiritual faith. 

“We respect people and meet them where they are.”
