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?

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, etc.) health to identify imbalances and work towards optimal wellness. Holistic balance emphasizes the belief that all areas of health are of equal importance.

— Shavonne James, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Long Beach, CA

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

As an expert in Holistic Therapy, my qualifications and expertise have been forged through years of specialized training and hands-on experience. My commitment to holistic approaches originates from a deep understanding that mental well-being is interconnected with physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. In my practice, I consistently apply the principles of holistic therapy, which entails treating the person as a whole - body, mind, and spirit.

— Sherol Ziegenbein, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in St. Petersburg, FL

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 utilizes a range of techniques to help individuals understand their symptoms. In addition, such strategies are designed to foster a greater sense of self-awareness to better understand the connections between their body, mind, and relationships and how these elements play a role in mental health. Mindfulness practices are utilized as well as learning how to self-regulate emotions and nervous system. Walk & Talk therapy would be a great option for this approach.

— Lindsay Dornier, Clinical Social Worker in The Woodlands, TX

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.

— Andrew Bentley, Clinical Social Worker in Oklahoma City, OK

Mental health doesn't exist in a vacuum. All parts of who you are as a person can affect (and be affected by) your mental state. I encourage people to examine what they notice in their mind, heart, body, and all different aspects of their life. This allows us to feel more whole as human beings, and can improve our relationships with all different pieces of our lives.

— Shima Ahmedaly, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Boca Raton, FL

I utilize a holistic, mind-body-spirit approach in my work, which means I draw from a variety of western and eastern practices to help you find the peace and happiness you are seeking. In addition to traditional talk therapy, I believe in the power of meditation and eastern philosophy and enjoy sharing these holistic approaches with those interested.

— Hall Birdsong, Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern in 4244 Central Ave N, FL

Holistic Therapy is important because it incorporates our whole-person (i.e. body, mind, spirit) needs into the healing process. For example, the unmet needs of our creative spirit can negatively impact our sense of self-worth or how stretching in the morning can relax our minds. It's all connected!
