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 believe that our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of ourselves impact each other . Each is part of our wellness foundation.

— Ellen Adams, Licensed Professional Counselor

In working with my clients, I recognize the importance of compassionately and mindfully addressing the physical, spiritual, psychological, and emotional components of their experience in order to have a whole person understanding of their issue. The way I employ holistic therapy can help you learn how to regulate your nervous system, remember who you are and why you are here by embodying your present experience, and master ridding the waves of change and transformation.

— Lina Návar, Psychotherapist in Austin, TX

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, conscious movement, ecopsychology, transpersonal psychology, guided imagery, energy healing practices, kundalini yoga, shamanic practice, Jungian psychology, and mindfulness practices that leads to lasting healing and transformation.

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.

— Amy Lynch, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Centenntial, CO

We are a complete system. I can not just consider your thoughts and help you move forward. You are more than just your brain. I work to help you consider how eating habits, exercise, hydration, spiritual practice all play a role in mental wellness.

— Angie Gutekunst, Licensed Professional Counselor in Bethlehem, PA

Holistic therapy aims to integrate all facets of your being - mind, body, spirit - in order to achieve overall wellness. Rather than being symptom-focused, holistic therapy takes into account what makes up the whole-person.

— Dr. Dana Avey, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Colorado Springs, CO

I address the entire person: mind, body, spirit, addressing wide variety of emotional disorders, especially addictions, personality disorders, dissociation and relationship issues. Integrating the entire person, including the physical body, mind/ego (as a function of the brain), feelings or emotions (as a function of the interaction between the brain [central nervous system] and the physical body), and spirit (the higher part of oneself that connects one to others and to all creation)

— Michelle Kelley, Counselor in Cedar Vale, KS

My focus is on the whole individual in treatment, mind, body & spirit. I teach clients how to relax their bodies and minds through yoga, meditation and mindfulness in session. I also assist clients in improving their sleep which impacts mood, energy and overall functioning. I am also available to discuss spiritual issues if clients are open to that and help guide them to see how helpful any kind of spiritual path can be a helpful part of treatment.

— Chris McDonald, Licensed Professional Counselor in Raleigh, NC

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 transforms the cause of symptoms. A Hypnosis transformation process is a clear, concise, and direct method of transforming the mental, emotional and physical symptoms that transcends traditional protocols while retaining a professional focus. The process ties in directly with the experiences and needs of the person. It is down-to-earth, to-the-point, practical, fearless, and with my 30+ years of experience and centuries of holistic health care protocol success.

— Dorothy M. Neddermeyer, Hypnotherapist in Phoenix, AZ
