Meet the Founder

"The Wellness Source is a place where miraculous changes can take place. On one level it is an office space, an address on Michigan Avenue. On a more profound level, it is that place within you, where the true source of wellness waits to be tapped. Everyone deserves to find his or her true self. When we expose the old, self-limiting beliefs that tie us to the past, the path to fulfillment becomes clear."

- Founder, Arlene Englander, NBCCH, MSW, LCSW
