Holistic Counseling

Holistic Counseling is an integrative approach to counseling that incorporates broad aspects of health for total well-being.  Mind and body are treated as one biological system.  Physiological techniques are used to improve the mind, emotional state and  the body for overall health.  Psychotherapy strategies are combined with nutrition, exercise, spiritual and social methods.

Using a ‘person-centered’ approach the entire individual is treated as one system.  Improvements in areas like nutrition can lead to improvement in mood.  Improved social support systems help to improve overall mental and emotional functioning.  The therapist works with you, educates you and supports you to learn new behaviors and life habits to discover the wellness within. Holistic methods look at the underlying causes of illness and stress.  These methods then work to improve the issues through natural biology and body functioning.  Holistic counseling can help treat depression, anxiety issues, life stress, weight management and improve overall self esteem.
