How do you begin to overcome emotional distress? If the pain is severe enough that you require professional help, how do you decide on a particular clinician or healer? In this article, I share my model of psychotherapy: psycho-spiritual counseling. The umbrella of all my work, as a holistic physician, is in Integrative Psychiatry and Nutritional Medicine. Half of my treatment approach involves nutritional medicine and half involves strategic counseling. I want to make this clear because total healing is most likely to occur when people address body, mind, spirit . . . and even more dimensions of life. By only addressing nutritional deficiencies and other body-level issues, we only see part of the picture.
