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?

I work on the premise that all human beings have an innate desire for balance, healing, and growth. I meet you where you are, as you are, and to help you meet your personal goals. Sex therapy is primarily through talk therapy, like traditional psychotherapy. Treatment is tailored to the needs of the client (and individual or couple). Clients are often provided exercises and worksheets to complete or practice between sessions.

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.

Holistic Therapy supports that the whole person is made up of interdependent mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional parts. Holistically, I weave together a tapestry of tools inspired by the expressive arts, somatic counseling psychology, neuroscience, psychosynthesis, ecopsychology, transpersonal psychology, guided imagery, energy healing practices, kundalini yoga, shamanic practice, Jungian psychology, and mindfulness practices that leads to lasting healing and transformation.

Functional Medicine practitioners use holistic approaches to look “upstream” to consider the complex interactions in your history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic makeup is considered, along with both internal (mind, body and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect total functioning.

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.

A PyschoSpiritual approach is a lovely because it holds many therapy interventions that are integral for healing! You will find hints of Feminist Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Trauma Therapy, and Expressive Arts Therapy. It is a sacred space and tool to explore the subconscious and the conscious, and how they work together to honor your intentions and intuitions. Specifically for me I am trained in incorporating Tarot Card pulls, ritualization, and art expression like writing and painting.

— Amy Lynch, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Centenntial, CO
 

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

Holistic therapy aims to integrate all facets of your being - mind, body, spirit - in order to achieve overall wellness. Rather than being symptom-focused, holistic therapy takes into account what makes up the whole-person.

— Dr. Dana Avey, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Colorado Springs, CO
 

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.
