Individuals who can benefit from this therapy are experiencing difficulties in finding the internal drive and commitment to make positive changes in their lives. Ideal candidates for motivational enhancement therapy at our Worthington, OH office may include individuals struggling with unhealthy habits. MET can also be effective for individuals facing challenges such as low self-esteem, lack of motivation to achieve goals, or difficulty maintaining healthy relationships. By employing evidence-based techniques such as empathetic listening, goal-setting, and exploring discrepancies between current behaviors and desired outcomes, motivational therapy aims to enhance an individual's self-awareness, self-efficacy, and motivation to change. Through the guidance of a skilled provider at Innovative Wellness, candidates for motivational therapy can embark on a journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and, ultimately, personal growth.

Motivational therapy at Innovative Wellness Centers focuses on how thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes affect a person's feelings and behavior. It concentrates on changing mental distortions and behaviors, improving emotional regulation, and developing personal coping strategies that target solving current issues. During your therapy session, you will answer a series of questions. The purpose of the questions is to allow you to think carefully about what matters to you and help you better understand yourself. Motivational therapy is typically best when combined with other forms of treatment.


After suffering a major tragedy, I just kept pushing through my life. I started a non-profit and traveled the country for speaking engagements. I was told countless times over the following years that I never took the time to grieve. I didn’t sleep well. I was quick to react. Since beginning the Innovative Wellness program about 6 months ago, I’ve experienced improved sleep patterns and the ability to multi-task. The biggest change has been gaining a sense of calm under duress, and in making decisions. I’m able to focus better and function longer at work. My wife has even noted that I’m less stressed.

At first, I noticed increased mental clarity and focus a few days after treatment. Over time, I have noticed that IW’s Program helps tremendously with stress management and overall outlook on life. The IW program has been wonderful for me. Not only does it couple IV infusion therapy of a key biochemical co-factor (NAD+) that supports energy production in every cell in our body, but also guided meditations during each day of treatment, thus facilitating and strengthening the body/mind connection. For me personally, the program has helped me by allowing me to be more calm, peaceful, strong, and hopeful, while improving my mental clarity and focus. I recommend the program to those who need a break from the daily stressors in life. You come in to a safe, and secure environment with staff that have an excellent bedside manner, where you are focusing on yourself, on trying to improve yourself. Just the act of me taking those 2-day breaks spaced at 1 month apart for myself, allowed me to realize the importance of taking time for oneself.

I suffered with debilitating pain for years—especially in my neck, shoulders and wrists. As a former gymnast and athlete who could no longer be as active, I felt a lot of anxiety as well. In 2016, I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis. My pain had become so severe, I would have to set my alarm hours in advance, to allow enough time for me to become functional enough to get up, ready and go to work. Then a family member told me about Innovative Wellness. I noticed positive results within my first two visits, after my first infusion. Over the following months, I found the treatments were helping to diminish the pain significantly –-to the point where I was able to extend the time between pain medication doses. Now my sleep is better and I’m less anxious than I was before the program. I experience less pain than before, especially in the morning. For those considering the IW program, I highly recommend it. There is no downside for me. My insurance covers quite a bit. I feel less anxious, more energetic, and not as tired. And I’m getting so much more accomplished!

As a sufferer of Rheumatoid Arthritis, I have constant inflammation in my hands, experience fatigue and headaches. After my first session of treatments, the inflammation diminished and my fatigue and headaches were completely gone. I felt like I regained my life! I used to have consistent thoughts which would bring me down and cause me to feel depressed. Since going through my treatment plan, when that type of thought enters my mind, it floats right out. As a result, I don’t have those negative feelings rather I feel energized and ready to proceed with my day. The ancillary treatments included in my plan are so inspiring and have a positive impact on my mental health. When I feel challenged, I think back to those treatments as a method to calm myself and remove any negative emotions. It works every time! As a mother of a young son, I regularly attend sports events. Because my mental health and clarity was not where I wanted it be, I found myself sitting on the sidelines, not being engaged and struggling to find the words I wanted to speak. As a result of my treatment plan, I am so different while at these events. Last week, I spent the entire time engaged with another mother. It may not sound like a lot to folks who have clarity and confidence; but, to me it was a life-changer!

I experienced a very impactful session with Steffany. She was able to find and release emotional issues that were negatively impacting my health and wellbeing. Her gentle and specific technique was very healing and I was able to see the benefits immediately. I am looking forward to future sessions with her!
