Holistic counseling involves viewing the whole person rather than just parts of a person (i.e. isolated issue or feeling, symptoms, etc). Holistic counselors believe individuals are interconnected to their environment and do not exist in a vacuum thus cannot be treated as such. We believe individuals actually increase their discomfort and unhappiness (resulting in anxiety and depression) when they try to isolate the issue from the bigger picture. In holistic counseling, we work with the whole individual, including mind-body-spirit, to bring the individual back to wholeness. When integration of the whole being occurs, changes are more likely to be longer lasting and meaningful.
