Blending Traditional Talk Therapy with Unique Solutions to Treat Depression & Anxiety
Depression and anxiety are two of the most common mental health issues people face. They have a profound impact on work, relationships and one’s personal life. People often function in life through a dark haze of persistent sadness, hopelessness, and guilt. Each step taken is akin to climbing a mountain. In this state, one often feels they are a burden to others and frequent attempts to conceal their pain only increases the devastation felt.
Depression and anxiety are often felt together and are characterized by a range of emotional, behavioral, and physical symptoms. These symptoms can include, but are not limited to, excessive worry, changes in sleep patterns, lost interest in activities, withdrawing or isolating, reduced concentration or attention, excessive guilt and feelings of unworthiness, and changes in appetite and/or weight.
Help Is Available
If you’re living with multiple symptoms, help is available. There is no need to suffer alone. Therapy can join you in getting to the root of the issues while allowing you the space necessary to process your thoughts and experiences. Often, talking helps bring new perspectives and greater awareness of areas in need of healing along with arising patterns you would like to shift. The objective view and mirror of a partner along your journey can provide you with the insight necessary to connect with your inner authority – to understand your answers within. In addition to more traditional talk therapy approaches, holistic approaches are also offered at Willow Holistic Center, LLC.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
The Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a form of energy psychology that combines principles of Chinese acupressure and modern psychology. It is a holistic healing technique proven to transform limiting beliefs and treat stress, anxiety, depression, and more. Together, you will be able to learn and integrate this powerful tool into your life to create new responses to self-sabotaging patterns and calm the nervous system.
When you feel stuck, becoming aware through experiential understanding is helpful because knowledge based on experience sticks with you. It brings awareness to your present circumstances and the fullness of your experience including your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and sensations. With a gestalt perspective, you bring a holistic, integrated view.
Working through issues, unfinished business, beliefs, and attitudes creates choice as it establishes greater connection with the authentic self and you are the only one who knows what you want deep down inside. Engaging in the work of therapy, you will be able to see circumstances from a new perspective allowing a newfound understanding of the situation and clarity regarding how to move forward.
