Integrative Health

In contrast to conventional health care methods that consider the mind and physical body as separate entities, integrative approaches aim to optimize total health by focusing on the whole person while addressing all levels of lifestyle, including mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual dimensions.

Integrative health approaches:
bullet encourage people to be active participants in their own health care and emphasize the therapeutic relationship.
bullet are based in scientific methods and make use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional and alternative.
bullet have the goal of optimizing total wellness through prevention and lifestyle enhancement.
bullet are practiced by professionals who exemplify integrative principles and commit themselves to self-exploration and self-development.

As a psychologist, I am able to integrate a variety of therapeutic techniques that focus on the intersection of mind, body, and spirit to help clients address feelings of stress, depression, and anxiety. I also have extensive experience collaborating with other professionals in fields of medicine, mental health, fitness, nutrition, movement, physical therapy, and bodywork to coordinate a holistic (whole person) approach to each client's personal wellness goals.
