Welcome

The Village Center for Holistic Therapy is a specialized holistic group practice located in the West End Village, two miles from downtown Pittsburgh.  In addition to structured and supportive therapy services, our Center provides wellness activities such as yoga and exercise classes, meditation classes, and educational workshops.


Holistic therapy opens doorways to learning about the ways in which different parts of our selves and our relationships with others are connected. It is inclusive and involves the physical, mental, spiritual, communal/social aspects of human beings. Addressing all the parts of the self, holistic therapy supports and empowers.

At the Village Center for Holistic Therapy, our staff will help you make a plan to gradually strengthen your breath, body, relationships, and mind. Together we will develop a simple and direct philosophy of mind that truly belongs to you. 

Please call or email us for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today.

Yoga for Self Love Therapy Series
Wednesdays 5:15-7:00pm
Co-facilitated by Kristy Weidner, LCSW and Michael Lubbert, E-RYT 500


This on-going series combines the tools of yoga with therapy to address the external and internal tensions that arise daily in our social relationships and sense of our selves. A therapeutic practice of yoga addresses tensions on both global and specific levels: the breath is our number one tool to bring calm to body and mind, and with the support of that calmness, we can begin to observe our conflicts—and our possibilities surrounding those conflicts—without the extra noise of hopelessness, negativity, or catastrophizing. Through this process we begin to understand what loving ourselves truly means.

Questions? Please contact Kristy Weidner by email: kristy@villagetherapy.org  Or phone: (412) 455-6890

Guided Meditation
Thursdays, 7:30 – 8:30pm
Free
Instructor: Victor Barbetti, PhD


Many studies show that meditation can relieve stress and encourage mental clarity. Meditation isn't about escape, though; it allows us to see our thoughts and habits more clearly without attaching the burden of judgment to them. A regular practice of meditation may thus help develop compassion, love and patience for our selves and others. This guided class will address ways to prepare your body for sitting. We’ll also work on developing concentration and an even and smooth breath. Other techniques that may be used in class include visualization, sound therapy, and deep relaxation.

Note:  This class is designed for beginners and those with experience meditating.  Props (cushions, blankets, etc.) are provided.  Just bring yourself and comfortable clothing to sit in!
