Serving Children, Adolescents & Adults

Jodi A. Brin is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who enjoys working with children, adolescents, and adults. Her therapeutic style is best described as integrative, utilizing the framework that she sees as most helpful to each individual, couple, or family that she works with. She has been trained in a variety of therapy modalities, including play therapy, behavior modification, cognitive behavioral therapy, supportive therapy, and psychodynamic therapy. She has worked with clients and various clinical issues, including depression, anxiety, trauma, behavioral issues, ADHD, and grief and loss. Dr. Brin has a wonderful ability to connect and empathize with clients, allowing her to use the therapeutic relationship to help her clients move in a positive, healing direction.

Dr. Brin believes that grief and loss experiences greatly affect all of our lives; whether it be a death of a loved one, loss of a pet, separation, divorce, loss of job, a move to a new house, a child moving to college, loss/change in health, etc. Dr. Brin believes that internalized, suppressed grief often leads to physical and mental health issues. After experiencing her own grief and loss, Dr. Brin became increasingly aware of the vast and conflicting emotions associated with grief and was intrigued by the verbal and nonverbal messages she received from others in response to her loss. Looking to explore this further, she found The Grief Recovery Institute and Participated in The Grief Recovery Method® Certification Program. As a certified grief recovery specialist, Dr. Brin helps to provide a safe, supportive environment in which the client can explore old beliefs about dealing with loss, identify what losses have effected one’s life, and help the client to take the steps necessary to complete the pain associated with those losses and move forward. In addition to helping adults, Dr. Brin helps grieving children to understand and express their feelings regarding their loss and helps the parent/ caregiver learn how to best support the child.

Dr. Brin also has a very special interest in psychological oncology. A member of the American Psychological Oncology Association, Dr. Brin works to treat the social, psychological, emotional, spiritual, and quality-of-life issues associated with cancer. Dr. Brin helps the client from the time of diagnosis, during treatment and survivorship, and through end of life issues and bereavement.

Dr. Brin earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Michigan State University, and her master’s and doctorate degrees from Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. She is trained in play therapy, EMDR I and II, and is a certified Grief and Loss Specialist. Dr. Brin is a member of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychosocial Oncology Association.

Healing Hands Integrative Energy

Reiki Therapy
Crystal Healing

Maria Giordano, is a graduate of the Free Spirit School in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Maria established Healing Hands Integrated Energy Therapy in 2009 and  has studied crystal healing and Reiki I & II.  She continues to expand her knowledge of therapies to help her clients.

Healing Hands Integrated Energy Therapy uses the ancient healing techniques of Reiki, using the “life force energy” to heal by balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a combination of two Japanese words “rei and ki” meaning universal life energy.

Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. This healing art is an effective delivery system. Your Reiki practitioner serves as a vessel that supplies healing energies where they are most needed. Reiki’s ki energies flow out of the practitioner’s body through the palms of the hands while they are touching or suspended slightly above your body.

Benefits of Reiki Therapy

Calms anxiety and depression
Enhances recovery from surgery
Helps your immune system
Helps relieve neck and back problems
Provides relief from chronic illnesses and cancer
Helps manage high blood pressure and diabetes
Helps deepen spiritual connection

What Happens in a Session
When you visit us you will be asked to lay down on the massage table fully clothed except for your shoes. You may be asked to remove or loosen your belt so that your breathing is not restricted in any way. Therefore, choose loose-fitting garments to wear on the day of your appointment. Natural fabrics are always best (organic cotton, wool, or linen.) You may also be asked to remove any jewelry such as rings, bracelets, pendants, etc., prior to the session, so consider leaving these items at home.

I am passionate and compassionate about helping people. I enjoy working as a healer, assisting others on their way to a healthy life style with a variety of very safe treatments with proven success.

A deeply spiritual person, over the years I have learned a variety of methods of healing that are truly life changing. I do this work with a lot of joy, caring and love.  I am an associate with the School Sister of Notre Dame. I have 3 children and 5 grandkids and I enjoy spending my time with them as much as possible.  I enjoy reading, being with people and going on spiritual retreats.

 I look forward to meeting you — call for a brief complementary consultation!

Ragani of Holistic Acupuncture Therapy is Board Certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and licensed by the State of Wisconsin. With over two decades of experience in acupuncture and over three decades of experience and training in yoga, meditation, and stress management techniques, Ragani integrates a broad scope of wellness interventions into her acupuncture treatment sessions. Her treatments offer a gentle and individualized approach within a relaxing atmosphere. Among her specialties are conditions of musculo-skeletal pain (neck, back, shoulder, arm, knee, etc.), fibromyalgia, gastro-intestinal disruptions, gynecological concerns, sports-related injuries, and stress-related issues. She is available for complimentary phone consultations for any questions regarding acupuncture and its treatment effects.

My experience with Ragani still feels like a miracle cure to me.
After just one month of treatment, I was free from 25 years of acute pain associated with
endometriosis. I can’t even begin to describe what a difference this has made
in my life. Ragani is an exceptional healer who approaches her practice with
incredible knowledge, skill, wisdom and compassion. I am forever grateful.
” -T.S.

“I’d suffered back spasms on and off for more than 20 years. Two acupuncture
sessions with Ragani and they went away and have not returned. Her gua sha
treatments have also worked well for me for other pain and circulation problems.
Ragani really takes time to listen to her patients and her holistic approach and
deep knowledge of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine gets great results for me.”
