Holistic counseling is an approach to treatment founded on HFS’ 4 Quadrant approach to wellness, which focuses on the entire human being and their life experience to treat the individual from a physical and spiritual context. When it comes to treating a number of health issues, it’s important that the mind-body connection be considered. Counselors who practice holistically are able to help their clients put their best foot forward in their day-to-day experiences physically, mentally, and emotionally.
HFS’ counselors are also highly concerned with the psychological wellness of their clients. As mental health practitioners, our counselors are well-equipped to provide clients with the psychological support they need moving forward. Holistic therapies will be used to address a number of challenges that clients may face, including depression, anxiety, mood regulation, somatic ailments, stress, and trauma. Through a combination of spiritual, emotional and physical treatment our counselors will help individuals to work in harmony to support their day-to-day function. HFS Counselors may suggest a number of complementary and alternative therapies that aid in their client’s well-being, including yoga, guided meditation, chiropractic techniques, massage therapy, gardening, aromatherapy, and adjustments to diet and exercise.
HFS offers counselors with diverse experiences and specializations, including: cognitive-behavior therapy, family dynamics, parenting with love and logic, substance abuse, person-centered motivational approach, wellness, trauma, LGBT issues, mood regulation, and work with service members to address the high suicide rates amongst their ranks.
