Holistic self-care lends itself to the idea that there are interconnected parts of our being that work in tandem. While mental health practitioners often speak to the connection of mind and body, we believe that a third component is equally important, spirit. There is a connection between our mind, body, and spirit (sometimes referred to as soul) that helps to make up who we are, how we think, and how we move through the world. In order to provide holistic self-care that would mean for many, not necessarily all, that the component of “spirit” would need to be explored, cultivated, and in some cases healed in order for someone to feel healthy and whole. While we would never push our individual beliefs onto our clients, we are comfortable weaving this spiritual component into the therapeutic work that we do.

As an example, there are some Christian clients who would identify spirituality as the core of their being. It would be impossible to work through issues of anxiety, marital dysfunction, or career-related concerns without exploring the impact of Christianity on each of these areas, as well as helping the client to carefully consider how they might use the strength of their spirit as a strategy to evoke change in each of these experiences. Our therapists are adept at meeting you where you are spiritually and allowing that component to be present in the process, from case conceptualization to the therapeutic interventions used to create change.

People often say that religion and spirituality are one of the things that people shouldn’t talk about (other topic areas that are said to be off the table are sex and politics). We are thankful that we work in a place that recognizes that nothing can be off the table and that in some cases religion and spirituality are at the core of a person’s existence, and their major source of hope. Allow us to partner with you, as we integrate your faith into your process toward healing, better health, and hope.
