“I came to Persephone Healing Arts Center after moving back to Jacksonville. Dr. Pautz had treated my brother before when we were teenagers. I felt comfortable with her. I had recently gone through a little crisis. I was fearful of being left alone, fearful of dying, and was suffering a lot from physical pain. I couldn’t seem to find relief no matter what I tried, including exercise, eating better, more sleep, and meditation. Dr. Pautz took the time to get to know me as a person, not just as a patient. We looked at my past, present, and hopes and goals for my future. She helped me work through my fear and anxiety as well as helped me reduce and deal with my physical pain. Dr. Pautz is the reason I am comfortable in my own body today. I left an unhappy marriage, I am near my family, I am snowboarding, doing Pilates weekly, as well as pursuing my Large Animal veterinarian degree. At 24 years old, vibrant and beautiful, Dr. Pautz helped me get my life back and start on the path to becoming the person I am meant to be.
Dr. Pautz was very easy to talk to, asked all the right questions and the atmosphere felt safe and secure. I felt like I was working on a relationship with someone who really cared about my wellbeing and wanted me to be happy and succeed in life. She drew me out of my shell a little bit just within that first visit; she had a lot of patience.
My experience with Persephone Healing Arts Center has become an on-going partnership to keep me healthy and pursuing my goals and dreams. Dr. Pautz and her staff are like my Pit Crew. I stay very busy now, pursuing my goals. Dr. Pautz and Persephone had a huge part in getting me to this point. I am better at setting boundaries with my family and friends and taking care of myself, I exercise regularly in ways that I enjoy, I have fun cooking healthy meals, I only use the organic line of facial care and make-up that the clinic carries because it does wonders for my face, hair and body. I am better in taking care of myself and others than I ever was before. Dr. Pautz helped me work through years of fear and baggage that were keeping me from my destiny and inner hidden beauty.”
“I was searching for a “holistic” doctor when Dr. Pautz at Persephone Healing Arts Center became a part of my journey. Dr. Pautz went above and beyond every expectation I had. She provides nurturing and encouragement during our counseling sessions, which is so imperative at my age. Along with the great life lessons I continue to learn, Dr. Pautz is an all-around healer and the role she plays in my life is greatly appreciated. Dr. Pautz is a Florida licensed medical doctor (M.D.), board certified in both holistic and conventional medicine and I believe her knowledge and skill set in the medical field are exceptional. Persephone is a place that I look forward to visiting and will continue to be a part of my life wherever my path may take me.”
“Jacksonville is truly blessed to have Dr. Pautz! She has helped me profoundly with my anxiety and depression. With her methods of Anthroposophical Medicine, Eurythmy (an art of movement), counseling, homeopathic remedies and nutrition classes I was able to get a handle on this.
When I originally came to her for my first visit, I was in a dark place in my life. I wore mainly black clothes and could barely hold a conversation with anybody. I knew I needed help and I needed real help. I did not want to cover up my problems with medication but truly wanted to move forward in my life. There is a beautiful presence at Persephone that my soul felt touched by and I was able to express what help I needed.
Dr. Pautz helped me be creative with life problems and taught me flexibility. With her holistic approaches she helped me overcome and outgrow my anxiety and depression. I have learned how to deal with problems immediately when they arise.
Dr. Pautz’s Eurythmy classes were life changing for me. Eurythmy helped me feel & speak more from my heart and soul. I could feel myself more in my body. I felt more comfortable in social settings. I also found myself doing more things on my own and now stand in a better relationship with the world. I developed skills for life. I am also able to deal with issues and put them into prospective more easily. Anxiety and depression rarely overcome me anymore, but I can tackle them efficiently when they do and they do not have a grip on my life anymore; I am handling THEM.
I now am wearing colored clothes and do not dye my hair dark anymore. I was even able to say a speech as the Maid of Honor at my best friend’s wedding!
Persephone Healing Arts Center is truly a healing place. My soul looks forward to every visit.”
