Carol Hollifield is a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Auricular Therapist and Biofeedback Specialist with over 20 years in the mental health, counseling and wellness field. Key to her approach to health and wellness is a strong belief that emotional resilience and physical wellness are interdependent. The most effective approach to health and well-being is integrative and natural therapies that address the whole person---mind, body and heart.
Carol incorporates Body-Centered psychotherapy, mindfulness training, and natural and bioenergetic medicine such as Auricular (ear acupuncture ) and Biofeedback therapies to address a broad range of issues regarding emotional and physical well-being. Working with the body in psychotherapy opens up a wealth of options for understanding, experiencing and healing that conventional talk therapy is often unable to tap. Body centered psychotherapy helps individuals deal with their concerns by helping them become deeply aware of their bodily sensations, feelings and impulses as well as their emotions, thoughts and behavior.
Auricular Therapy is needle-less, electrical stimulation of the auricle, or external ear for treatment of the the entire body for both physical and emotional health. As a natural-medicine alternative to mood-altering, or psychoactive, drugs, Auricular Therapy can be very effective in helping people with mood management. Biofeedback Therapy promotes relaxation which can help relieve a number of conditions that are stress related. The idea behind Biofeedback Therapy is that by harnessing the power of your mind and becoming aware of what is going on inside your body, you can gain more control over your health.
