News and Updates- we’re now offering:

Soul Retrieval:

Do you feel:

  • Lost
  • Not “all there”
  • Missing something vital
  • Have repeated bouts of depression
  • Been diagnosed with PTSD
  • Repeatedly self-sabotage
  • Had a “rough” childhood

You may be suffering from Soul Loss.  This is a condition where, due to something traumatic happening to you, a small part of your soul’s essence has gone into another plane of existence.  This occurred to protect your psyche at the time of the trauma, but the problem is that the essence did not return once the trauma was over.  To return to complete vitality, you may find it very helpful to have a Soul Retrieval.  If you are tired of the feelings you have been dealing with, call today to determine if a Soul Retrieval can benefit you.

Shamanic Reiki:

Experience the deep healing and transformation that Shamanic Reiki, the powerful alchemy of Shamanism and Reiki, offers. This potent healing modality can help you shed limitations, expand your consciousness, and heighten intuition. Shamanism and Reiki are each powerful paths of healing, and when combined, their integrated energy can produce dramatic results.

Counseling for Children:

Haley D. is our new counselor specializing in problems relating to children and teens.  She can help your youngster whether they are having issues with transitions, anxiety, navigating the school environment, bullying, depression, friendship difficulties, ADHD, and many other issues and topics.

I visited Lance Garland, for anxiety associated, with a needle phobia. I must say that I was reluctant at first but, I was so shocked, at how effective the treatment was. Lance used specific techniques, associated with PTSD patients, to help me overcome my fear of needles. I can now happily say, that I am working at a hospital where I put in IVs, draw blood, and perform finger sticks. Without Lance’s help, I would not be able, to work, in a setting that I love. I highly recommend Lance to anyone in need of an effective LPC. Also, Charleston Holistic Center was efficient, professional, clean, and I recommend their office to anyone. ~Scarlett

Phobia testimonials

I cannot thank the Charleston Holistic Center enough for their caring approach and expert guidance in helping me overcome my stress and anxiety issues. I felt immediately at home here and Lance Garland has been a helpful guide.  Both his professionalism and knowledge was quickly apparent but what struck me the most was his relaxed and easygoing approach that made me feel as if I was talking with an old friend instead of a cold detached analyst. Through both talk and hypnotherapy he aided me in overcoming my many anxieties and helped make me a much stronger person.  I will always be grateful and will continue to remain a lifelong client. -Sharon M.
