Our Story

The Healing Heart Center Inc. is Candice’s lifework. She has been in conventional therapy and child welfare for many years and has done an exemplary job of gathering the skills appropriate to the mainstream therapeutic approach.

She is well respected in the therapeutic community in the Quad Cites and beyond. In addition she has seen and understands true healing demands an approach not found in traditional medicine. Out of this was borne her desire to ‘get out from under’ the restrictions of a conventional hospital system and assemble a community of professionals from varying backgrounds and with unique holistic healing skills. The Healing Heart Center Inc. is that community.

Candice shares “The Healing Heart Center Inc. began in my heart many years ago. I wanted a place for people to gather for spiritual, physical, psychological, social and emotional growth and healing for all ages. I wanted a place where all could come and feel welcome, safe and at home.  The name came from a group of four women brainstorming several years ago. So after much sweat and tears on the part of over 12 practitioners who have gathered together and worked so hard to make this a wonderful healing community, we are proud to present our staff, services, and programs to you.”
