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 work on the premise that all human beings have an innate desire for balance, healing, and growth. I meet you where you are, as you are, and to help you meet your personal goals. Sex therapy is primarily through talk therapy, like traditional psychotherapy. Treatment is tailored to the needs of the client (and individual or couple). Clients are often provided exercises and worksheets to complete or practice between sessions.

— Stacey Wright, Psychotherapist in Tucker, GA

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 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

Holistic therapy takes into account that the whole person is important in the therapeutic process. Working through the lens of holistic psychology, a therapist uses a client-centered approach that seeks to balance inquiry into the mind, body and spirit. As a holistic clinician, I encourage the client to work with their own inner wisdom to understand their unique experiences. I incorporate somatic awareness, transpersonal experiences, and art-based practices into therapy sessions.

— Camara Meri Rajabari, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Berkeley, CA

I use several different approaches in therapy but they all have one thing in common, they are holistic. This is important in order to experience growth and healing in the mind, emotions and body. Therapy approaches that only focus on part of the person, will only experience part of the healing. I believe it is important to address the entire person because our mind, emotions and body are all connected.

— Julie Holburn, Counselor in Boulder, CO

I treat my clients as a whole person rather then a diagnosis. I see the importance of addressing all areas of a person's health and wellbeing, including their mental and emotional health but also social, physical, spiritual, and occupational health as well. All of these life areas interact and impact on another, so I find the counseling experience to be most effective when all areas are in a state of growth.

— Rebecca Haney, Counselor in Middletown, OH

I have used holistic therapy with several clients I serve to examine how different domains of our lives can wear on our mental health. Collaboratively, we will examine relationships, career, family, health, and mental health to create a plan of action to help you create the healthiest environment for yourself.

— Natasha Lamb, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Jacksonville, FL

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.

— Marissa Harris, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Chicago, IL

Holistic Therapy addresses you as a whole person (mind, body, & spirit). I see you as more than just the reason you walk into our office. Our 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.

— Christina Rogers, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in St. Petersburg, FL

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.

— Tanya Witman, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Colorado Springs, CO

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

Holistic Psychology is a term that was developed to broaden the science to include looking at the whole of human behavior and to consider some “parts” that have been overlooked or deemed as outside the realm of scientific inquiry for Psychology. With Holistic therapy also, Integrative and Functional to resolve addictions, health, mental, and medical conflicts the mind, body, spiritual, and your environmental is used not just limited to theory of psychological studies and assessments.

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

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

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.
