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 use several different approaches in therapy but they all have one thing in common, they are holistic. This is important in order to experience growth and healing in the mind, emotions and body. Therapy approaches that only focus on part of the person, will only experience part of the healing. I believe it is important to address the entire person because our mind, emotions and body are all connected.

— Julie Holburn, Counselor in Boulder, CO

I believe in treating people in a holistic fashion focusing on emotional/mental health, physical health, and spiritual health. Spiritual health doesn't necessarily mean religion, it is just those things that feed who we are as a person. I do believe that all three spheres of health affect each other, and there is research to support this.

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 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.

— Christina Rogers, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in St. Petersburg, FL

I work with an identity-first model which recognizes that the world is set up for people who meet a very specific set of standards. This can create shame and stigma about anything that is outside of the norm. Because my approach is holistic, meaning I recognize that each area of a person’s life affects all areas of their life, when working with clients I prioritize all parts of the person equally.

A holistic approach means seeing a person as a whole being and recognizing the interconnectedness of one’s mind, body, and spirit in defining one’s overall wellness. Holistic balance utilizes a self-inventory of one’s mental (psychological), physical, emotional (i.e. expression of emotions), and spiritual (i.e. values, beliefs, sense of purpose) health to identify imbalances and work towards optimal wellness by strengthening weakened areas.

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

— Chris Lombardo, Licensed Professional Counselor in ,

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.

— Sarah Peace, Licensed Professional Counselor in Culver City, CA
 

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.

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.
