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 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.

— Jacqueline Casumbal, Psychotherapist in Gaithersburg, MD

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.

— Christina Uong, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in South Pasadena, CA

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.
