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?

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.

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

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 St. Petersburg, FL
 

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.

Washington Psychological Wellness is proud to provide an integrative & holistic approach to treatment. Holistic mental health emphasizes the entire person (bio-psycho-socio-spiritual model) and not just on their symptoms or presenting problems. 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.

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.

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.

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

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
 

Each person is a unique individual with a combination of specific skills and special challenges only they possess. I work from an theoretical framework based on holistic psychology concepts pioneered by Alfred Adler in the early 20th Century. I encourage people to live a fuller more satisfying life by coming to realize their untapped capacity to participate and contribute to their family and community in meaningful ways.

We will look at you completely and get to the root of the concern..no band aid- fixes around here.

— Alexandra Stark, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Brecksville, OH

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
 

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

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
 

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

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
 

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.
