My Take on "Holistic" Therapy and Counseling
When you think of "Holistic Therapy", what comes to mind? Some may have clear images come to mind and some may not have any experience with the term holistic. What I strive to do in my practice, is simple. I believe that taking a "holsitic" approach means to look at the whole person and/or situation, instead of just the symptoms currently presenting themselves. I put focus on all parts of your life to help empower you to live the fullest life possible.
"Holistic- relating to or concerned with complete systems rather than with individual parts."
Holistic Treatment is a form of healing that considers the whole person- body, mind, spirit, and emotions- in the quest for optimal health and wellness. According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health- the primary goal of holistic medicine practice- by gaining balance in life. Holistic medicine practitioners believe that the whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives, it can negatively affect their overall health.
So, when you come see me, I will personalize a treatment plan that looks to help heal a variety of areas in your life. Together we will delve into your emotional, spiritual, and physical health to find the areas in need. Together we will travel the journey toward wholeness.
My hope is to grow into an integrated care practice where you can recieve psychotherapy, substance abuse treatment, acupuncture, massage therapy, nutrition and exercise counseling, recreational therapy, and spiritual counseling and guidance all in one location. For now I offer individual, couples, and family therapy, group therapy, and parenting classes. I project a full array of services to be available in one location by 2018. In the meantime, I will rely on an extensive and exceptional network of professionals in this area to refer you to a specialist that can help you in any area you feel needs work.
