Holistic Professional Counseling & Nutritional Coaching

Butterfly rising from human hands

Kelly and Charles Bender own and operate Chrysalis Institute, Holistic Emotional Wellness. We provide Holistic Professional Counseling & Nutritional Coaching services for individuals, couples and families.

Just like the caterpillar needs its chrysalis to transform into a beautiful butterfly, you also need a safe place to heal and transform yourself. The name Chrysalis is a metaphor of our services. We help people who feel certain area(s) of their lives no longer work for them. We do this by creating a safe place with all the right tools to help them transform their lives in meaningful ways in alignment with their true self.  Chrysalis has served the city of Moore, Oklahoma and surrounding communities for more than nine years.


Our Mission

At Chrysalis we believe behavioral health challenges (i.e. depression, anxiety, phobias, etc) all have emotional, nutritional and spiritual aspects. Natural herbs and nutrition based supplements have proven beneficial in helping manage psychological challenges.  At Chrysalis we seek to;

  1. Do no harm.
  2. Educate and empower people to proactively gain control of their emotional well being.
  3. Encourage and coach best psychological practices.
  4. Encourage and educate about the importance of nutrition and exercise  in maintaining psychological well-being.

People of all faiths, lifestyles and persuasions are respected and welcome at Chrysalis Institute & Ministries.
