Our view of mind-body-spirit wholeness is our philosophy. It is also what makes Dr. Vernita Marsh & Associates, a holistic group therapy practice – seeing the individual as an integral part of a larger whole. We see you as a psycho-emotional-spiritual-physical being. There is no such thing as a mind separate from its body and spirit, and a holistic therapist recognizes this. As holistic psychotherapist we also view the multicultural aspect of one's being and work from that perspective.
Other practices may follow a western medical model: they focus on one aspect, call that a specialization, and don’t deal with the whole person. Hence, they focus on the mind of the individual, and don’t see the person as an integral part of a whole.
The truth is, you are part of a relationship, a family, a community, a world, and none of these is separable. Feelings and emotions are body processes, and thus the phrase “it’s all in your mind” makes no sense to a holistic practitioner. The mind is housed in a body, which is also an inseparable relationship. What’s in your mind is in your body, because they are one and the same thing.
Our work is dedicated to helping you heal from challenging life events; develop stronger identities, deeper relationships; unlock and resolve the blocks that inhibit growth; and allow a more authentic self to emerge in order to live a more fulfilled. We work with women, men, adults, children, adolescents, couples, and families.
