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?

There are two types of holistic therapy. One is horizontally holistic, and the other is vertically holistic. Horizontally holistic therapy attempts to incorporate all physical realities, such as the physical body, emotion, lower mind, and culture. On the other hand, vertically holistic therapy incorporates not only the physical realities but also the realities beyond the physical level, such as the higher mind and the spirit. The holistic counseling I offer is the latter.

I have a Master of Arts in Integral Counseling Psychology. Prior to beginning my work as a therapist, I was a yoga and Ayurveda practitioner as well as an environmental and human rights activist. I grew up Unitarian-Universalist, and have engaged in Buddhist, Sikh, Hindu, and Pagan spiritual traditions.

“Depression is like a woman in black. If she turns up, don’t shoo her away. Invite her in, offer her a seat, treat her like a guest, and listen to what she wants to say.” ~ Carl Jung

Sometimes just talking isn’t enough to create lasting change. Holistic therapy sees that the body, mind, and emotions are all part of who we are and need to be included in therapy in order to create deeper awareness and change. Many clients who like this type of work have been in therapy before but felt that just talking wasn't getting as deep as they wanted to go.

As a holistic psychotherapist, I view all of my clients as being intrinsically whole. Though, we often have emotional and mental suffering, I'm also very aware that we all have within us a deep inner wisdom that can guide us toward healing. My goal as your therapist is to help you become more in touch with that inner wisdom, or intuition. I am non-pathologizing in my approach and focus on the big picture. I am very aware of the mind-body-spirit connection in my work.

Holistic approach in therapy means that a person is seen is a whole system consisting of body, mind and soul. Physical illness or pain can affect emotional states and mental health, and mental health issues can affect the physical body, too. Any symptom is a flashing light telling that something in the system is not working properly. During sessions, we explore those mind, body and soul connections and separate emotional from physical to let go of the symptom.

— Tatiana Morris, Counselor in Minneapolis, MN
 

A holistic approach considers the person as mind/body/spirit. Physical symptoms are associated with emotional/mental symptoms and vice versa. Evidence shows that stress is the underlying cause of most chronic health conditions. It makes sense, then, to treat the person holistically.

— Sue McRee, Therapist in Pinellas Park, 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
 

I view health as a combination of physical, emotional, cognitive, and social wellness. I believe it's important to treat the body as well as the mind in therapy.
