“Mind-body medicine helps patients by offering traditional talk therapy as well as tools designed to help with relaxation and stress management,” says mind-body therapist Holly Sullivan.
Sullivan studied English writing at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, obtaining a bachelor’s degree in just three years. She then worked for eight years as a professional writer and editor for prominent journals and marketing publications, developing communications skills she now uses in clinical practice. She completed a master’s degree in social work at the University of Illinois at Chicago, graduating with honors. Her training included a mental health internship at Family Counseling Services of Aurora in Illinois, where she co-facilitated a domestic violence treatment group and received specialized training.
Additionally, Sullivan participated in a four-year Gestalt program, learning how to increase self-awareness and live more in the present moment.
Sullivan has served as a therapist for a behavioral health services facility in Phoenix. She conducted psycho-social assessments and outpatient therapy for adolescents, adults, couples and families.
In 2010, Sullivan began a private practice in Phoenix to provide psychotherapy to individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, as well as self-esteem and anger management issues. During this time, she also served military families as a health coach. She joined our Metropolitan Phoenix hospital in April 2013.
