IN-PERSON MENTAL HEALTH THERAPY
FOR ADULTS IN LEXINGTON, KY


 

High-impact approaches for anxiety, trauma, depression, and other issues
Progressive support for personal growth
 

Like progressive medical models that treat root causes of disease rather than just managing symptoms,

the Center for Holistic Behavioral Health provides therapies that address mental health problems at the source.

 

Recognizing how essential physical and spiritual wellness can be to mental health, the Center for HBH

also provides services supporting positive lifestyle change and deep personal growth.  

SOMATIC THERAPY
EMDR & Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT Tapping)

The most common treatment approaches can be limited for PTSD, anxiety, depression, or issues like anger and shame. Somatic, or mind-body therapies, can produce faster, more impactful results by engaging the limbic system--the  foundation of the mind-body connection and a reason mental health problems often have physical symptoms like panic, insomnia, poor digestion, and chronic pain.

EMDR
lowers the intensity of feelings and symptoms attached to traumatic or adverse experiences. EFT Tapping can be used as a coping skill for moving past difficult feeling states, and brings awareness and healing to traumatic patterns when used as a guided therapy approach. 
Both methods begin reframing dysfunctional beliefs that negatively impact your life.

TRANSPERSONAL THERAPY

Internal Family Systems & Guided Ketamine Therapy

Early experiences and social conditioning shape our ego, or personality, which is necessary to function in the world--but also the source of our reactions, defenses, and emotional patterns.  Transpersonal therapy approaches recognize spirituality as our potential and connection beyond the lens of our fractured egos. A natural extension of the insight gained through somatic therapy, the goal of transpersonal therapy may be shifting trauma into growth, addressing your ''shadow,'' psychedelic integration, or working through issues of belief, meaning, purpose, identity, or non-belonging. 

Internal Family Systems (IFS) can decrease destructive emotional and behavioral patterns through recognition of inner ''parts'' and a higher ''Self.''
 IFS is a fascinating stand-alone therapy, but it can be maximized when  applied to guided ketamine therapy for safe and supported growth through an altered state of consciousness. Concepts from Jungian depth psychology inform all transpersonal work. 

WELLNESS PLANNING

Goal-Setting for Optimal Health

You may need help making lifestyle changes to heal a chronic illness, reduce stress, move forward after a difficult chapter, or strengthen your addiction recovery with a holistic plan. Based on the science of habit development, Wellness Planning translates your self-improvement thoughts into goals and actions with the momentum of structure and support. Often, use of a Somatic Therapy will maximize your efforts by illuminating or releasing psychological obstacles to change.

Wellness Planning can also include information about targeted nutritional approaches for anxiety, depression, and addiction cravings, which you can then discuss using with your medical provider.
