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?

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 separateness.

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.

— Lina Návar, Licensed Professional Counselor in Austin, TX

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 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.

— Luisa Bakhoum, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate
 

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.

My approach to therapy (and people in general) is to view every individual as a whole, multi-faceted person. There are many facets that make up who you are and contribute to your overall wellbeing. A holistic approach takes into account all aspects of you and unpacks each layer to get to the core of who you are and the issues you are facing.

— Erin Powers, Associate Professional Clinical Counselor in ,

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, often reflected in imaginary boundaries between mind, body and spirit. In my approach to therapy, I attune my holistic attention to you with honesty, consideration and compassion.

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 and painting.

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.
