Professional statement

Will Holloway is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist and Psychotherapist who offers secure, confidential online counseling to adults throughout New York state. Many of his clients seek to address anxiety, depression, stress management, emotion regulation, self-esteem, and trauma recovery. Through mindfulness skills, Will helps his clients to increase their positive self-talk, challenge negative thinking, and feel more grounded in mind and body.

Will is uniquely trained in somatic psychology, supporting clients to identify the connections between their thoughts, emotions, and sensations in the body. His approach is trauma-informed, including a focus in early attachment and relational patterns. In session, he helps clients build the skills to cope with difficult emotions and sensations, unpack traumatic memories, and cultivate resilience and self-compassion.

Will completed his graduate degree at New York University and completed additional postgraduate psychotherapy training at The Nativa Bezerra Institute which focused on somatic psychotherapy. He also holds a national board certification in Music Therapy and is completing advanced training in Mindful Awareness in Body Therapy (MABT).


Message to clients

I am a relational psychotherapist with advanced training in positive psychology, mindfulness, and somatic (body-oriented) therapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy. I work with individuals who are suffering from symptoms of anxiety, depression, and difficulties in their relationships.

The core of my work focuses on building strong relationships with my clients, learning about their struggles and successes, and then using the dialogue to help them uncover their own unique pathway to health and self-development.

Modern society tends to put the mind and thoughts above the body and sensations/feelings. In this manner, we as individuals may lose ourselves in a world of mental illusion. When we are able to access our inner nature, comprised in part of our instincts (including sensory awareness), aptitudes, and passions, we are more equipped to be self-guided in life and able to achieve balance and wholeness for ourselves.

I create a safe, supportive environment in order to effectively explore the identified issues and ultimately, to assist in the process of self-mastery.
