Holistic Therapy

If you this is your first time trying holistic therapy, you probably have questions about how it feels and how it works. Below you can find some key principles of my holistic approaches.

Building the Relationship

Before beginning any major therapeutic work, it is important for us to cultivate a supportive and trusting relationship. Safety and empathic understanding are key foundations which must be in place for vulnerability, honesty, and positive change to happen. As with any relationship, we will at times experience difficulties or conflict, but these are genuine opportunities for us to achieve mutual growth and deepened understanding. The process of rupture and solid repair builds a powerful and sincere therapeutic relationship.

A "Whole Person" Approach

It is important to consider how you experience living in the spaces of your mind, body, spirit, emotions, and environment. Many people feel that they are constantly in the "mind" space and feel less connected to their other areas of being. In therapy we can explore ways to help the mind find stillness, build awareness of somatic responses, get in touch with emotions, raise spiritual consciousness, and bond with the natural world. 

Therapeutic Practices

There are many helpful techniques we can use to gain insight and connect the whole self. These include:

  • Working with dreams, archetypes and symbols

  • Drawing, writing, and other creative exercises

  • Dream work, rituals, and visualization

  • Nature/elemental work and grounding exercises

  • Breath work, meditation, and somatic practices

Depth & Transpersonal Work

Some people discover meaning in seeking spiritually transcendent experiences. Others prefer to examine the unconscious self. In therapy, you can explore spiritual emergence, connection to higher states of awareness, building intuition, and areas such as compassion for others, forgiveness, and gratitude. You can also work on hidden complexes, ego defenses, and the shadow self.
