Holistic Therapy

Love Whole Being extends a practice to reconnect with your intrinsic wholeness. When you align all aspects of your being, embodying wholeness feels like coming home.

In holistic therapy, your tears, fears and joys—along with everything in between—will be greeted with open arms. By all means, let this be a space where you share openly. Unedited and equally unfiltered. Altogether rawly even.

Instead free yourself from holding things in. First, it’s so much work! Regardless of long-ago learnings to make yourself smaller, quiet, to hide and attempt to be invisible, of course, you also want to be seen, heard and known. Obviously, these are fundamental needs and basically part of being human.

So you may have learned public, buttoned-up ways. Rather, maybe not. Moreover, you have kept a different story privately. You might be either outgoing, an ambi-vert (flexibly extroverted and introverted), or perhaps even a devoted introvert. Especially if you’re shy, experience social anxiety or feel safer hiding at times, you’ve come to the right place. 

Even if you perpetually anticipate criticisms and are fearful of being judged, you will be met with understanding, warmth and patience.

Despite some caution at first, you may soon find ease. You may surprisingly start to come out of your shell. As a result of learning other ways to protect yourself, in time you will become braver speaking up for your needs. Subsequently, even be bold. Most important, you will become more honest and real with yourself. Afterwards, possibly with others too. Eventually, you will come to recognize your gifts: the grace of your body, heart, mind, soul and spirit all working in tandem. Encouraged with warmth and gentleness, in due time, you will learn to be more fully yourself in the world. All of you is gladly welcome here.

With holistic therapy approaches, Michele Kong aims to provide a refuge for:

Holistic therapy emphasizes you in relationship, that is how you navigate different contexts including: family, social groups, communities, institutions, cultures and major systems of our society. In other words, I utilize a systems approach, and contextualize you inside of sociocultural, organizational and global dynamics. In time, we will look at these various, interdependent facets of your life together.

“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open…”
—Martha Graham, Dancer/Choreographer, creator of Graham Technique

Perhaps you have had prior talk-therapy experiences. Despite your dedication, now you feel like you’re stalled. While you may be looking for something different, you still aren’t sure what else could help. Generally, you have gained awareness of your patterns. Continuing to talk about the same issues essentially feels like a plateau. Committed and motivated so far, you want to find what can help you get unstuck.

Mostly, you want relief and change. Of course, you want to live your best life

Meanwhile, yoga, meditation or other body-mind practice(s) may have dredged up things for you to look at more closely with a trained professional. You likely have friends and relatives who probably mean well. In the long run, you might be finding that it isn’t the kind of support you truly need. Not to mention, they offer advice or even unsolicited opinions!

Undeniably, you really need a neutral space to hear your own thoughts. In essence, a sounding board. Overall, someone who truly listens to you. You wish for ways to re-focus on you… and perhaps your soul’s intentions for being here. Finally, to bring your desires and dreams into reality.

Holistic therapy can appeal to many, yet the journey has varied terrain. At first, you may find relief just having professional support and a compassionate witness. Straightaway, you may make incremental changes and feel encouraged. However, any change process typically has both set backs and course corrections.

Holistic therapy for:

Of course, in therapy of any kind you will experience forward movements. Then, you may feel like you’ve backtracked instead. Some steps along the way may feel really difficult and challenging. The road might open up. Then, narrow, wind and twist. Later, you will leap ahead re-inspired again. All of these movements are natural for change, growth and healing.

In short, holistic therapy encourages you to make space for all of it. By embracing the ups and downs, holistic therapy will inevitably empower you to meet whatever life presents you with wholeheartedness.

Holistic therapy is a process where you will experiment, heal and grow. Surprisingly, you may find how utterly transformed your life can be.

“ Learning to rely upon and trust the intuitive wisdom of your body as you’ve been depending upon and trusting your cognitive mind marks a homecoming. Tissue and bone, cell and fiber, our bodies carry an unbiased desire for a genuine conscious relationship with the soul.”
—Paula M. Reeves, PhD, author of Women’s Intuition
