Event Date:

Let’s be honest, many times talk therapy is not enough to help our clients heal from Anxiety, Depression, and Trauma. It is imperative that we have additional tools to be able to help our clients when they begin to feel stuck and need a more Holistic approach. In this training you will learn the fundamentals of  Holistic Mental Health, what it means to become a Holistic Therapist, and how practices like trauma-informed yoga, breathwork, and sound healing can be powerful tools in the therapy room.


Workshop Objectives: 

  • Understand Holistic Mental Health
  • What a Holistic Therapist is/is not
  • Basic overview of the nervous system
  • How practices like yoga, breathwork, and sound healing can be powerful tools in the therapy room.
