Why Offer a Holistic Approach to Counseling?
Women live dynamic and complex lives.
Women today are juggling career, personal relationships, self care, caregiving responsibilities, and so much more!
Holistic counseling, also known as integrative counseling, is an ideal therapeutic approach to improve women's mental health because it is takes into consideration all of their individual characteristics, preferences, needs, physical abilities, spiritual beliefs, and motivations to create an individualize treatment plan for each client.
Integrative counseling is a mind, body, spirit approach that utilizes evidence based counseling modalities (such as cognitive behavioral therapy) paired with complementary medicine, integrative medicine for mental health, and holistic health coaching in order to provide you with a uniquely effective therapeutic experience that produces sustainable change and improvement to mind/body health.
Her Time provides women with therapy that is . . .
Integrative therapy provides treatment based on the relationship between mind, body, spirit. In other words, you're seen as an entire human being and every part of you and your experiences is important.
At Her Time, integrative psychotherapy is paired with complementary services like health coaching and integrative medicine for mental health (aka. mental health nutrition) to promote holistic, mind body wellness.
The cornerstone of integrative therapy is developing a treatment plan that is customized for each client. In other words, the therapist and client work together to develop a treatment plan that is physically and mentally restorative.
Her Time is a practice that welcomes people from all walks of life. We are LGBTQ+ positive and will happily work with male or female clients, but are dedicated to serving those who identify as female. We are also trans affirming and provide gender counseling and letters for hormone replacement therapy and gender reassignment surgery.
All religious affiliations (including atheism) are respected, welcomed, and will be integrated in treatment planning to the clients request and therapists competency.
Her Time is a fully remote, tele-health practice that brings counseling to your fingertips. You no longer need to worry about commute time, childcare, or take time away from caring for ill family members to come to therapy. You can login from the comfort of your own home, car, or office to access quality mental health care.
The clinical mental health counseling techniques used at Her Time are evidence-based. This means research has proven the effectiveness of these interventions. Some of the modalities utilized most frequently are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solutions Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, and more.
Her Time is a feminist practice, which means that clients experiences and level of distress is evaluated with societal, cultural, and political causes in mind. In other words, the challenges and stressors that women (and men) face as a result of bias, stereotyping, oppression, and discrimination based on gender is central to identifying appropriate therapeutic interventions and solutions.
In feminist mental health care, the voices, ways of knowing, and experiences of women and girls are honored and clinical diagnosis is avoided. A primary goal of feminist informed therapy is strengthening women in areas such as assertiveness, communication, relationships, and self-esteem. This is achieved through an egalitarian client-therapist relationship that is characterized by validation, advocacy, psychoeducation, care, and support.
