More Info About My Practice
Holistic Therapy Approach
Holistic Psychotherapy is an integrative practice rooted in alternative approaches to traditional therapy. This modality of therapy brings awareness to the whole Self; including body, mind, and spirit in order to better understand, heal and build acceptance of the Self. Holistic therapy takes you deeper than the traditional talk therapy.
Holistic Psychotherapy offers support through a gentle transformative process for those willing to make positive changes in their lives. Through the use of various alternative, holistic therapeutic methods and collaborative measures, clients are able to develop life-changing habits to help them cope with all of life?s various obstacles. I believe everyone has the capacity for success and I am dedicated to offering you a guiding hand in your life journey.
