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'm a lifelong learner, and a well-developed, skillful therapist. In years of professional development, I've received various levels of training in the following modalities: CBT, DBT, ACT, MI, SE, EMDR, NVC, IFS, psychodynamic, and group therapy. I borrow tools and insights from all these therapies and integrate them for my client's benefit with my primary grounding and advanced training in SCT and SAVI, which together offer a broad and deep framework for healing and growth.

There's no one-size-fits-all approach. One thing most people get wrong is that they don't realize how unique they are. A lot of the work I do is collaboratively painting a clearer picture of who you are, what you've been through, and forging the strength (in a nurturing environment) to wipe your lens clean from distortions that are protective yet limiting.

The approach I take with each client is unique to that client's needs. My approach is integrative, which means that, in addition to talk therapy, I incorporate education, mindfulness, movement, breathing exercises, art therapy, sexual health information, and EMDR in my sessions where appropriate. This style reflects my authentic personality, and my love of variety and creativity, and I have found over the years that it serves my clients extremely well.
