A Holistic and Collaborative Approach to Mental Health Counseling
St. Louis, Missouri
The Holistic and Collaborative Approach
I believe that when treating mental health symptoms, it is vital to consider the health of all other aspects of wellness. The mind-body connection speaks to the importance of looking at the person as a whole, where neurological, emotional, physical, and spiritual systems are all interconnected. Mental health disturbances commonly have implications and root causes in these other systems, therefore requiring a holistic approach to treatment.
Investigating how each aspect of your health are impacting one another will be part of our work together and may require referrals to other types of healthcare providers. My role in this process will be to assist you in reducing mental health symptoms, gaining insight to and creating change around problem behaviors, and building healthy relationships. I believe that collaborating with experts in whole body health, nutrition, psychiatry, fitness, and/or other health fields is how we will create an individualized health plan that best serves you and your needs.
