M.I.N.D., also known as Malter Institute for Natural Development, has been expanding for nearly two decades.
The holistic psychotherapy clinic, recently moved to 2500 W. Higgins Road, Hoffman Estates. The clinic, owned by the husband-and-wife team of Rosalie and Rick Malter, was in Schaumburg for 12 years after making its start in Arlington Heights in 1979.
Along with growth, the clinic has changed over the years but has always kept a holistic, multi-disciplinary emphasis, with therapists from a variety of backgrounds, said Rosalie Malter.
Rosalie Malter is a counselor, certified biofeedback therapist and yoga teacher. Rick Malter is a licensed clinical psychologist and a licensed nutrition counselor.
The Schaumburg couple has a second location in Bloomingdale. At both offices, they help people who suffer with marital problems, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, learning and attention problems.
The Malters also authored the book, "Shrinking the Judge; Freeing the Inner Child," about identifying that part of us that is self-critical and judgmental and often blocks us from reaching our goals, Rosalie Malter said. The book is in the second printing and will be available in January for $14.95.
Rosalie Malter also leads a one-day workshop at Harper College entitled, "Stopping Self-Criticism."
