STAGES OF HOLISTIC HEALING
HOW I INCORPORATES HOLISTICS
feel blessed to have been placed on the path of Marriage &
Family Therapy and Holistic Health. Through my education and experience
I have incorporated these traditional and alternative methods
and theories to create a powerful, practical, and realistic therapeutic
approach. An approach that is designed to support individuals
to release thoughts, feelings, and beliefs in a compassionate
and assertive way. My idea is to truly design an "emotional
workout" for each individual and develop a physical-emotional
regimen that they can empower them to do on their own.

made those shifts themselves. This work is extremely powerful
and deep - as a result, there are only a few people currently
certified to facilitate these processes. In addition to the thousands

truly be present in all parts of life.

STAGES OF HEALING by Dr. Barry Green
This is basically acknowledging your need for healing - moving
away from denial/avoidance/escape/excuses, etc. - and towards
taking accountability for your life and what is inside of you.
2: Acceptance & Commitment
Whatever your issue is (physical/mental/emotional) - it is yours.
You may want to deny it, repress it, blame someone or something
else for it, be resentful about it, etc. - but it will still be
with you, limiting your life. Or you can accept that it is yours
to heal and make the commitment to do what it takes. If you are
truly aware and truly committed, you can heal your life.
3: Linking Cause & Effect
This is about finding the core or source of an issue so it can
actually be healed. Most therapies focus on relieving symptoms
while the deeper cause is unaddressed; that is why the long term
success is low and the issues come back. Real, permanent healing
- particularly of your core pattern - requires identifying where
they originally came from and the beliefs, emotions, and energetics
that are involved. This is like finding the root of a weed, so
it does not keep growing back.
4: Release & Replace
Once the root is identified, it still needs to be pulled out.
The trauma and/or dysfunctional core learning is not stored in
your conscious adult brain; it is stored in your subconscious
or child brain. These two are completely different energetic and
physiological systems. All the analysis and understanding (adult
brain work) in the world inherently cannot uproot core trauma
or patterns. It is necessary to use methods that take you deeply
into the old brain and allow you to connect to the imprinting
there, so it can be released. You are then able to replace the
old beliefs/patterns with new, functional ones, at a deep enough
level that they become truly congruent experiences.
5: Re-education & Integration
This is an essential part of healing. After releasing and replacing
old beliefs, we have the openness and opportunity for something
new and fulfilling, but not necessarily the specific skills. It
is rare that our dysfunctional core learning was accompanied by
functional life skill development. Now, these need to be learned
and practiced. These new skills are both inner and outer. Inner
skills are things such as helping to focus and calm the mind,
being clear on what is felt and what is needed, and how to diffuse
intense, triggering situations. Outer skills would be things such
as communication, managing resources, and relationship skills.
