Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy is the integration of elements from different schools of psychotherapy in the treatment of a client. An integrative therapist will first assess their client and then match proven treatment techniques to their unique situation. As it is a highly individualized approach, integrative therapy can be used to treat any number of issues, including depression, anxiety, and personality disorders. Research has shown that tailoring therapy to the individual client can enhance treatment effectiveness. Think this approach might be right for you?

I integrate a variety of models and focus on those that align with your specific concerns. The therapy models I utilize most are person-centered, emotionally-focused, mindfulness-based, ACT, DBT, dynamic, motivational interviewing, narrative, and sand tray play therapy.

— Tera Buerkle, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Lexington, KY

I provide counseling from a clinical, yet Christian worldview. I have extensive experience integrating clinically proven, evidence-based techniques while providing Christian Counseling.

— Amy Braun, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor
 

I take an integrative mind-body approach to care. The therapeutic relationship is far more important than specific therapeutic modalities used. We collaboratively create a tri-phasic, personalized treatment plan for those presenting with PTSD, C-PTSD, and complex trauma. All treatment is underpinned by Polyvagal theory.

— Dianne Goetsch, Psychotherapist in , MI

While CBT is a great tool, there are outstanding therapies that can supplement CBT and be integrated together. I draw on some techniques from positive psychology, mindfulness, and developmental-behavioral analysis.

— Christopher Joaquim, Counselor in West Palm Beach, FL
 

I use a mind-body approach to healing, having been trained in energy healing.

— Maureen Fiorelli, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in New York, NY

I greatly appreciate an Integrative approach, and love the ethical code "do no harm." At Northwestern University (Evanston, Illinois) we learned several types of therapy, including psychodynamic psychotherapy, and others that can be included as an integrative therapy approach, such as feminist, gestalt, attachment, culturally sensitive, existential, Gottman method, Mindfulness, narrative, and more.

CBT is great but doesn't solve everything. I have learned and practice many different styles of treatment. I think of them as parts in a tool box that I can pull out depending on what the patient presents with. I regularly utilize attachment theory, acceptance and commitment therapy, psychodynamic concepts, strategic therapy, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills, and positive psychology.

— Rebecca Scott, PsyD, Clinical Psychologist in Pleasanton, CA
 

Believing there is no “one size fits all” approach to counseling, I integrate numerous treatment approaches based on your unique set of symptoms, wishes and goals. In addition to the EMDR and TF-CBT therapies noted above, I have training in CBT, DBT, narrative, Gottman Method, and play based adaptations including sand tray use and expressive arts. Above all, I enter into therapy with a person-centered way of being and am committed to supporting clients in guiding the course of their treatment.

— Joey Jachec, Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern in Rockledge, FL

Integrative therapy is a progressive model of therapy that draws from many different therapeutic models to best suit the individual needs of the patient. Rather than imposing a rigid modality on every patient regardless of their needs or preferences, integrative therapeutic approaches adapt to the unique circumstances you bring to therapy.

— Liz Fletcher, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oklahoma City, OK
 

I could list all of the common approaches to treatment in this section, but that doesn't tell you much about my style. I have learned over the years that one of the most important factors in therapy is the genuine trust and connection between client and the therapist. And because of that, I strive to enter each session with mindful presence and real curiosity so that I can get to know YOU. I listen and respond thoughtfully, with kindness and direct feedback when helpful.

— MICHAELA KOZLIK, Therapist

Why do you need Integrative therapy? because our mind heals when it communicates with a healthier body. When you are happy, functioning with less anxiety, depression or conflict's your overall wellbeing heals and works together. There is less need for medication, we experience less mind and body disorders and disease, and you will have a more successful and well functioning life. This is the life cycle and the mind/body connection that leads to a healthier you mentally and in health.

— JESSICA DAWN RUSSELL, Therapist in Encino, CA
 

One size does not fit all. Your needs are unique to you. I use a strengths-based approach drawing from person-centered, Humanistic/Existential, Cognitive Behavioral, trauma-focused and Psychodynamic approaches.
