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?

Holistic is a neat way to say, you are more than just your symptoms. You are a person with your own experiences, and looking at life through your own lenses. We will explore how daily habits and practices, physical health, spiritual beliefs, might be influencing how you feel on a day to day basis.

— Jeralyn Giffen, Therapist in , OH

Sometimes we feel like parts of us are missing or are weak. We may be experiencing physical pain due to what we are thinking or feeling. The holistic approach is to to help correct, heal, and strengthen you as a whole individual. This may look like doing some stretching during a session, having a homework assignment to get a massage or enjoy a healthy meal, or maybe it’s sitting in your feelings and recognizing how they show up in your body.

— Michele Kitney, Professional Counselor Associate

Holistic therapy is a blend of top-down and bottom-up therapies. Therapy with us is not a one-size-fits-all formula. Instead, we collaborate with our clients to create a holistic treatment plan that utilizes their strengths, is person-centered and affirming, and meets each person where they are. This means we offer tools to help clients cope with their bodily experiences of anxiety or trauma AND skills to begin to think and feel differently about experiences, emotions, themselves, and others.

— Kanjana Hartshorne, Therapist in Exton, PA

Somatic or body-based therapies are a bottom-up approach to treatment. Our group specializes in somatic therapies (EMDR, yoga therapy, IFS, Somatic Experiencing, and Mindfulness) that help people cope with raw emotions and reactions that show up in their bodies. These tools help take the body from feeling like it's in a place of danger or fight and flight and move it into a place of safety by regulating the nervous system and creating a safe space in therapy for processing.

— Kanjana Hartshorne, Therapist in Exton, PA

It is important that we look at you as a whole person as we address your needs in counseling since there may be other factors that contribute to your mental health needs. This may include addressing your mental health, physical health, spiritual health, relationship/social health, career health, and anything else that may play a contributing role in your holistic wellness.

— Karilyn (Kay) Bela, Counselor in Lancaster, PA

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.

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

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 believe that therapist should be as unique as the person receiving it. Although I have had training in many structured treatments, I firmly believe that there should be flexibility in treating people, and context matters. You do not exist in a vacuum and therefore sometimes you might benefit from integrating multiple therapeutic interventions through the course of your treatment. The most important thing is therapy should be a collaboration between the therapist and client.

— Rebecca Keck, Counselor in Kissimmee, FL

The mind, body and spirit is an interconnected system that needs to be treated as such. When trauma occurs, damage is done across the system, and treating one part barely scratches the surface. Coming into a state of balance involves learning to regulate our nervous system, trusting our intuition and listening to our feelings and senses, healing inner child wounds, nourishing our soul, and connecting with something greater than ourselves.

— Jessica Eden, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Arvada, CO

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

Integrative holistic therapies focused on treating root issues with a blend of integrative therapies like yoga, reiki, movement, expressive arts, Brainspotting.
