Holistic Therapy

A holistic approach to therapy leads with the big picture. Holistic psychotherapy, an integrative treatment method, emphasizes the relationship between the mind, body, and spirit, attempting to understand and address the ways issues in one aspect of a person can manifest in other areas. Therapists who use a holistic approach typically believe that seeing each client as a whole being with interconnected emotions, physical feelings, thoughts and spiritual experiences is fundamental to providing successful care. Holistic therapists will help clients gain a deeper understanding of their whole self, which can build self-awareness and self-acceptance. Holistic Therapy is used to treat a number of issues, including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma and mood regulation.  Think this approach might be right for you?

The goal of holistic therapy is to balance all the different aspects of the person, so the entire person is addressed during therapy and not just one aspect of ourselves. It is the integration of the mind, body and spirit. You'll gain understanding and knowledge of how our mental health can affect our physical health and overall sense of well being. You'll learn techniques to decrease the tension, anxiety, and stress and aid you in creating a more balanced state of mind, body and spirit.

— Cheryl Carr, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Hamburg, NY

For me, interconnectedness is key. I understand our inner and outer landscapes to be complex. Holistic therapy is about centering wholeness. It is considering a wider view of our experiences and challenging perceived separateness.

I have used holistic therapy with several clients I serve to examine how different domains of our lives can wear on our mental health. Collaboratively, we will examine relationships, career, family, health, and mental health to create a plan of action to help you create the healthiest environment for yourself.

My approach to therapy is multifaceted because You are multifaceted. My practice is integrated using "evidence based therapeutic modalities" that address Brain-Mind-Body-Emotions. We are in the new era of Western medicine and psychology. Today, instead of holding the old limiting view of the brain and body as only a biological machine, awesome scientists, doctors, and healers know mind-body is a vast energetic network where Spirit, Matter, Energy, and Power intersect -- Linking these energy centers to prevent psychological suffering and physical illness, and heal illnesses and emotional suffering. You are whole and Holistic Being. I view symptoms from a growth oriented perspective because symptoms are the alert signs telling you that something about your life, in your life, or your approach to life is not in balance. I help you on your journey to heal and transform from the “Inside-out” and the “Outside-In.” Its kinda like a Mind-Emotion-Body Detox.

— Dr. Shawna Freshwater, Clinical Psychologist in Miami Beach, FL

We are more than just our struggles. The relationship between all aspects of who we are: our body, mind, and spirit influence how we feel and function. By taking a holistic approach, we can consider you as a whole person and work within your emotions (thoughts and attitudes), relationships (with self and others), and spiritual aspects (beliefs about your place in the world).

Using spiritual belief systems and rituals as a part of therapy (fully dependent on client belief systems)

I find the holistic approach complimentary in working with life transitions which can be a change in the body, mind, or spirit. My education and experience in hospice and palliative care and specializing with adults and aging have lead me to assess and treat people with a biopsychosocial and spiritual model taking into consideration the entire human being and their life experiences that will guide discovery, transformation and the willingness to thrive.

— Tanya Witman, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Colorado Springs, CO
 

In working with my clients, I recognize the importance of compassionately and mindfully addressing the physical, spiritual, psychological, and emotional components of their experience in order to have a whole person understanding of their issue. The way I employ holistic therapy can help you learn how to regulate your nervous system, remember who you are and why you are here by embodying your present experience, and master ridding the waves of change and transformation.

Expect mindful, purpose, and whole person-based conversation through a depth, transpersonal, and/or existential lens. I provide a necessary space to integrate ones experience but, most importantly, give space to parents, teens and families without bias or judgment. My main work centers around Chakra Alchemy works on transforming so called off balanced emotions or energies, old behavior patterns, strategies and beliefs, into a balanced and healthy “positive” state of being.

I treat my clients as a whole person rather then a diagnosis. I see the importance of addressing all areas of a person's health and wellbeing, including their mental and emotional health but also social, physical, spiritual, and occupational health as well. All of these life areas interact and impact on another, so I find the counseling experience to be most effective when all areas are in a state of growth.

For me, interconnectedness is key. I understand our inner and outer landscapes to be complex. Holistic therapy is about centering wholeness. It is about considering a wider view of our experiences and challenging ideas of separateness, often reflected in imaginary boundaries between mind, body and spirit. In my approach to therapy, I attune my holistic attention to you with honesty, consideration and compassion.

— Ashley Gregory, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in East Bay, CA
 

Holistic Therapy addresses you as a whole person (mind, body, & spirit). I see you as more than just the reason you walk into my office. Holistic supportive services are focused on helping individuals develop a much deeper understanding of themselves at all levels, which can often lead to improved self-esteem and self-awareness. For me, it's about helping people to dig a little deeper, reconnect mind-body-soul, and expand their awareness.

I approach the work I do integrating somatic psychology techniques, yoga therapy, body movement and psychedelic integration. A holistic approach allows for the opportunity to drop down from the head (intellect) and move into the body to discover and recover the deep wisdom available there.

— Dr. Denise Renye, Sex Therapist

Holistic therapy takes into account that the whole person is important in the therapeutic process. Working through the lens of holistic psychology, a therapist uses a client-centered approach that seeks to balance inquiry into the mind, body and spirit. As a holistic clinician, I encourage the client to work with their own inner wisdom to understand their unique experiences. I incorporate somatic awareness, transpersonal experiences, and art-based practices into therapy sessions.

— Camara Meri Rajabari, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in ,
 

With holistic wellness at the core, I draw from earth-centered healing modalities: presence-based conversation, meditation, mindfulness, body-positive movement, plant and stone medicine, yoga, breath, self-love and the many other diverse ways of inviting a life of wholehearted living and being.

— horizon greene, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Seattle, WA

Your body, mind, and self (or consciousness, soul or spirit) are all a part of being human living on this Earth. Each of these aspects has information for you. Often we can become experts at listening to one aspect more than the others. Psychotherapy is a chance to pay attention to what else is happening for you, learn new ways to support all of you, listen to your own wisdom and the wisdom of the world around you, and follow the inner healer within you.
