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 incorporate metaphysical complementary modalities with clinical therapeutic techniques to achieve healing and wellness. I collaborate with other specialized providers as appropriate to offer a thorough and balanced approach to care.

— Christine Kotlarski, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in ,

As an Occupational Therapist, I view people as individuals, not diagnoses. My approach is holistic in that all areas of concern are addressed with you through the lens of what’s affecting your daily function and quality of life. We look for ways to collaboratively solve issues or for ways that you can live alongside these issues in your daily life while still finding quality in your life.

— Vanessa Gorelkin, Occupational Therapist in Scottsdale, AZ

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

My approach to therapy is as unique and dynamic as you are. For me, there is no "one size fits all" when it comes to therapy. I have vast experience working with an array of orientations that will provide you with the best care possible. As I get to know you as an individual, I will tailor our work to co-create a safe, easeful space for self-expression, self-exploration and relationship building. I can support you through art, writing, movement, talking, mindfulness and more.

— Talia Chanoff, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in ,

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

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

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

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

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

I have received a graduate certificate in Holistic Health from Saint Catherine University and have completed a Certified Integrative Mental Health Professional training

— Elise Zimmerman, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Saint Paul, MN

Using spiritual belief systems and rituals as a part of therapy (fully dependent on client belief systems)

— Chris Lombardo, Licensed Professional Counselor in ,

I offer holistic care support that is molded to fit your personal needs as an individual. WIth 10 years background in holistic healthcare, I have witnessed and experienced the power of helping individuals from the inside out, working with the person as a whole. Therefore, i identify the importance of acknowledging each aspect of a person and working to hold up the areas that need extra care and attention in order to establish stability, longevity and wellness in their life.

— Amy Galaviz, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in Vancouver, OR

I honor the mind, body, and spirit as three distinct, but interrelated aspects of ourselves. Dis-ease in any one of these can come from an imbalance, which profoundly affects the others. This can result in feeling disconnected, numb, or anxious. It is our soul’s way of letting us know that we are lacking integration. I support healing by helping you understand your mind, tune into the wisdom of your body, and honoring your unique spirit.

— Becky Reno, Associate Clinical Social Worker

I have been especially drawn to holistic therapy since I worked in early childhood development and watched as bodyworkers unwind trauma and tension in little ones' bodies, without using words. Since then I have certified in infant massage instruction, taken five multi-day courses in cranio-sacral therapy, and trained as a Reiki Master. Since 2018 have been immersed in personal study of herbalism and the work of Medical Medium Anthony William for addressing chronic illness.

— Janaki Tremaglio, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Seattle, WA

Washington Psychological Wellness is proud to provide an integrative & holistic approach to treatment.

It reaffirms the importance of the relationship between clinician and client, is informed by scientific evidence, and uses all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals, and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.

— Washington Psychological Wellness, Mental Health Practitioner in Gaithersburg, MD

Holistic psychotherapy, an integrative treatment method, emphasizes the relationship between the mind, body, and spirit. I believe that seeing each client as a whole being with interconnected emotions, physical feelings, thoughts and spiritual experiences is fundamental to providing successful care.

— Chris Parker, Clinical Social Worker in Houston, 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

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.

— Dr. Denise Renye, Sex Therapist

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

Everyone is different and unique. There are so many ways to become a wonderful and loving mother so I use tools from different theoretical backgrounds and tailor my therapy to each mother's individual needs.
