What is Holistic Psychology?
When you look Holistically at the mind and body- you can see they are in an integrated,, inherently whole and intelligent system designed to find its way to equilibrium. When we are out of balance, our suffering is expressed in undifferentiated form- in both the mind and body, and our symptoms are the clues. A Holistic approach to psychology means looking at both the mind and body to heal, and trusting the inherent wholeness at your core to guide you there.
So along with the psychological work of tending to emotions, the body must be tended to as well. A holistic approach means looking at how our whole selves are functioning- thoughts, emotions, spirituality, nutrition, exercise, energy levels- to optimize mental wellness. When we trust in what are minds and bodies are telling us, we can find the keys to healing.
What techniques are used?
My brand of Holistic psychotherapy focuses on finding inner wisdom that yields a profound shift toward healing. When you find your center, your wholeness is revealed. From this place, I guide you to...
use the wisdom of awareness and metabolizing emotions, and
practice mind-body techniques (meditation, exercise, functional nutrition)
...that reliably help you address the relationship between your symptoms, and find your way back home to yourself.
