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 utilize elements of multiple forms of therapy to provide you with individual care tailored to your needs. Most commonly the interventions I use come from Person-Centered, CBT, IFS, and psychodynamic schools of thought. I believe that at the core of all therapy is the relationship that a client forms with a therapist. Without trust, non-judgement, and wishing genuine wellbeing for clients, change cannot happen.

Integrative therapy is an approach to treatment that involves selecting the techniques from different therapeutic orientations best suited to a client’s particular problem. By tailoring the therapy to the individual, integrative therapists hope to produce the most significant effects. Integrative therapy is not restricted to a particular methodology or school of thought. The goal of this is to improve the efficacy and efficiency of treatment and adapt it to the specific needs of the individual.

I specialize in Mentalization Based Therapy (MBT), an integrative form of psychotherapy that uses aspects of psychodynamic theory, CBT and other schools of thought, as related to psychology. Mentalization is the ability to interpret and understand the mental state of oneself or others underlying overt behavior. Goals of MBT include helping people increase mentalization capacity, which improves emotional regulation and strengthens interpersonal relationships.

— Payam Kharazi, Psychologist in Beverly Hills, CA

I most often work from an integrative perspective, which means I use techniques from psychodynamic, interpersonal, and cognitive behavioral theories. I use the techniques that are most appropriate for my individual client's situation, and the ones that appeal to them the most.

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.

Art therapy is highly adaptive and as such lends itself well to enveloping a variety of theoretical practices and approaches. I have taken various workshops and trainings demonstrating the various ways to integrate techniques such as Mindfulness-Based Practices, DBT, and even Trauma-Informed Yoga into my practice as an Art Therapist. I also have had post-graduate training on utilizing creative techniques beyond the visual arts such as Poetry Therapy and Play Therapy techniques.

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
 

I practice integrative therapy and my therapeutic approach varies depending on a client's needs and experiences. I draw heavily from somatic therapy, motivational interviewing, narrative therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, attachment theory, internal family systems, and acceptance and commitment therapy.

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

I utilize an integrative approach to therapy, relying on empirically-supported principles to include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy in achieving desired therapeutic outcomes. No one person is ever the same; thus, it is of utmost importance for myself and the client to work collaboratively and tirelessly to find the best treatment for them.
