Welcome to Holistic Divorce Counseling
Holistic Psychotherapist Nicole S. Urdang, MS, NCC, DHM, LMHC.
The purpose of Holistic Divorce Counseling is to provide support, resources, and comfort for all life’s issues and transitions, not just the cosmic hazing of divorce.
If you have tension myositis syndrome (TMS), mind-body syndrome, or neuroplastic pain, you welcome any relief. Emotional freedom technique (EFT) is an amazing way to acknowledge your negative emotions, the cornerstone of much TMS treatment, do a somatic assessment, and reframe your perspective. I can’t think of one other method that does this so quickly […]
The more sensitive you are, whether you’re aware of being sensitive or not, the more likely it is that you will have TMS, mind-body syndrome, or neuroplastic pain. If you’re male, or someone who thinks it’s important to be tough and independent, you can still be highly sensitive, though your ego may not allow you […]
Cultivating curiosity, creativity, and perseverance will see you through almost any challenging situation and enhance your life. Take a few minutes now to answer the following questions. When was the last time you felt curious about something? When was the last time you acted or thought creatively? When was the last time you figured out […]
Yoga has profound effects of body, mind, and spirit. It moves us, literally and physically, beyond the confines of our self-imposed limitations. It turns and twists us to see different inner and outer landscapes. With every breath, yoga grounds us in this quirky, inscrutable life experience.

The next key is self-compassion. While there are many other wonderful ways to heal from this psychogenic syndrome, self-compassion is the royal road to most of them. […]
Almost every TMS recovery program is based on the concept that symptoms are created from repressed negative emotions. While I agree this is true in the majority of cases, I think there are other dynamics at work. In chemistry, the concept of a supersaturated solution is when there is simply too much of something […]
Edward Bach, the doctor who developed 38 homeopathic flower remedies, was a highly sensitive person. While his remedies may work for wide swath of the population, I believe they’re best suited to people who are similarly sensitive. Since highly sensitive people often experience everything more intensely, when they have neuroplastic pain, TMS, or mind-body […]
While there are plenty of people who think surprises are fun, there are many who find them disturbing. As someone who has enjoyed some surprises in life and shunned others, I began to wonder what makes someone enjoy them or recoil from them. If you grew up in a family where there was a lot […]
When it comes to relationships, it’s all too easy to keep reaching for the same empty glass to quench one’s thirst—the primal thirst for relationships that offer understanding, connection, support, and comfort. This manifests in continuing to seek, from those incapable of giving it to you, the emotional succor you crave. It’s a fool’s […]
