While psychotropic medications can be helpful to some clients, it’s not the only solution to your anxiety, trauma, or stress. Our small private practice based in Washington, D.C. A Fresh Start Therapy offers holistic therapy methods that treat the whole person in order to promote lasting wellness.
What Is Holistic Therapy?
Mental health and wellness go hand in hand. In order to live a fulfilling and productive life, you need mental and behavioral health services that address both aspects. At A Fresh Start Therapy, our Wellness Program rewards clients’ participation in treatment while introducing them to beneficial holistic therapy approaches.
When clients hear the word “therapy”, they often think of clinical talk therapy in a traditional office building. In addition to evidence-based behavioral therapy approaches, we offer unique indoor and outdoor treatment options that serve as a therapeutic tool that helps clients heal. For example, useful holistic therapy options include:
- Nutritional therapy
Alternative Therapy Approaches
While traditional therapeutic approaches provide a baseline for lasting recovery, we integrate alternative treatment modalities that use holistic components. Moreover, examples include:
- Somatic experiencing that focuses on emotion regulation in clients who’ve experienced trauma and PTSD by engaging the senses through imagery and movement
- Play therapy that has proven to be particularly effective in allowing children to express emotions through play
- Motivational interviewing that empowers clients to change negative thoughts and behaviors patterns
