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 do believe that we are of mind, body, and spirit. As your counselor, my hope is to work congruently with all parts of self so that wellness is achieved in all areas of life. This might include offering a book suggestion, recommendations for a walk during our session, suggestions for you to include outside body work- like massage, acupuncture, or checking in with your primary doctor; or an invitation for a mindfulness meditation or breath work, in or outside of the office.

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.

In order to feel better, it is important to invite the entire self, lived experiences, and all of the elements of your life into the therapy room because everything is interconnected. My role is to keep things simple and to help you integrate new tools so that your body, mind, and spirit are grounded and at peace.

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.

I am a holistic mental health therapist because of the way I approach psychotherapy. I believe that mental health is impacted by our physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and intellectual bodies. As a licensed clinical social worker, integrative nutrition wellness coach, and yoga teacher, you can rest assured that I will consider every area in your life with you as we work to help you get to the place you want to be.

— Tia Conway, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in , NC

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.

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.

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 between mind, body and spirit.

— Ashley Gregory, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in ,

I have an integrative and holistic approach to therapy, meaning - I want you to bring all of you to therapy, body, heart, mind. I believe that through somatic, expressive art, and nature-based therapy modalities that you can move towards safer embodiment physically and emotionally so that your body, heart and mind are in alignment as much as possible. When we bring our bodies into the therapy picture, we can start to unwind and clarify how we get wound up and confused/anxious in the first place.

— Becky Robbins, Creative Art Therapist in Kenmore, WA
 

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

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 working on transforming so called off balanced emotions or energies, old behavior patterns, strategies and beliefs, into a balanced and healthy “positive” state of being.

This modality of therapy brings awareness to the whole Self; including body, mind and spirit in order to better understand, heal and build acceptance of the Self. Holistic Psychotherapy offers support through a gentle trans-formative process for those willing to make positive changes in their lives.

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.

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.
