Lotus Center focuses on helping young and mid-life professionals through a holistic, mind-body-spirit approach. Our variety of services including nutritionist consults and meditation instruction reflect this orientation. Additionally, within each type of service offering, our staff gets to know what is going on in all areas of life so we can help you understand how to improve your mental health and overall wellness from multiple angles.
Owner, Heather Shannon, LCPC, decided to create a holistically focused organization because she has found that it often takes putting multiple pieces of the puzzle together to see the results you want. A client might benefit from exploring their emotions and concept of self in psychotherapy, but if they are binging their brains out on sugar or neglecting to pause and take some quiet time for meditation, they might not moving forward as hoped. Our goal as an organization is to help clients identify the unique mix of beliefs and behaviors that is going to work best for him or her and to help clients remove obstacles to implementing these beliefs and behaviors.
Each Lotus Center staff member has a unique background that incorporates a holistic philosophy in his or her own life. Our team includes a Boston marathoner, a practicing Buddhist, a track & field coach, a drama therapy practitioner, an LGBTQIA specialist, a new Mom, a former fashion merchandiser, a yoga teacher and a former teacher. What we have in common is our passion for helping our clients, constantly learning and growing as professionals and providing a welcoming environment for everyone who walks in the doors.
We are happy to look up your insurance benefits for you, but keep in mind that you are ultimately financially responsible for any fees incurred. Psychotherapy services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. We are in network with BCBS PPO and BlueChoice plans and accept out of network benefits for all other plans.
