Butterfly rising from human handsKelly and Charles Bender own and operate Chrysalis Institute, Holistic Behavioral Healthcare Center. 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.

At Chrysalis we believe behavioral health challenges (i.e. depression, anxiety, phobias, etc) all have nutritional and even spiritual aspects. Natural herbs and other nutrition based supplements have proven beneficial helping manage psychological challenges. Of course we are always mindful of the power of the the human spirit when it comes to the healing process in general.  At Chrysalis we seek to;

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

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