Want Us To Contact You?
At The Integrative and Holistic Center, our goal is to bridge the gap between the body, mind, and spirit. It is our desire to help everyone that walks into our clinic to find a deeper understanding of themselves and to leave feeling whole. Through our holistic approach, you will regain the physical and energy balances of the body and mind.
At the Integrative and Holistic Center, we see your life challenges of trauma, injury, or anxiety as more than a thought or emotional problem. We believe that when you encounter these hardships, your entire being or personal ecosystem© of your mind-body-spirit is impacted. The term personal ecosystem is used to make sense of your human experience. We are familiar with the term ecosystem to describe the interconnectedness of the various elements in nature. Human beings have systems too, including the mind, body, and spirit that are separate and connected. If we want to thrive beyond your current challenges, we have to include your entire being and use all the resources available in your personal ecosystem to transcend the initial concern that brought you to therapy in the first place.
Through the different forms of treatment that we offer, we can help you heal wounds of the past, cope with the distress of the present, and help you pave new paths for behaviors and attitudes that will lead you to your desired self. Most importantly, we will do this together.
Types of Treatments
Applied Clinical Hypnosis
Hypnotherapy is becoming a popular tool to deliver therapy. Our goal with hypnotherapy is to focus on mind-body connectivity and healing. It is possible through hypnotherapy to engage and direct one’s mind to the desired thought, emotion, and/or experience to work through the origins of an individual’s depression, anxiety, and even trauma. With hypnotherapy, we hope to help you heal emotional wounds and create new attitudes and ways of viewing your experiences.
Mindfulness-based interventions (MCBT/MBSR)
Mindfulness-based interventions are techniques used to bring a person into the present moment in a way that doesn’t allow for judgment. By practicing mindfulness, you will be able to become connected and more aware of your physical, mental, and emotional state. There are hundreds of mindfulness techniques to practice and like many other tools in therapy, it is not a one-size-fits-all. We can help you explore these different techniques of mindfulness so that you manifest the behaviors and attitudes you desire in your daily experiences.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR psychotherapy is used in the healing of distress that is associated with past traumatic experiences. Through EMDR, we will help you process the experiences that have laid the groundwork for dysfunction, work through the current life circumstances that are bringing distress and arousing internal and external triggers, and finally forge new patterns, thoughts, and behaviors while desensitizing recognized triggers and allowing for new coping strategies around those experiences. Our goal is for you to feel safe and empowered in the present moment.
Through Guided Imagery, we are able to guide you to a place of relaxation and stillness. Guided Imagery expounds upon the 5 senses requiring you to cultivate your sense of smell, touch, sound, sight, and taste as you are asked to envision a place of tranquility. Through this evoked state of relaxation, there can begin healing in your emotional and mental distress. Guided Imagery is a practice that not only impacts the mind but the body as well. As your mind begins to slow down and heal, your body and breath will begin to follow and calm, allowing for total mind-body connectivity.
It can be difficult to find our motivation. even in the things that we know are best for us. If you are lacking the motivation to change behaviors that are preventing you from being your whole self, it is our goal through Motivational Interviewing to move you through the emotional stages necessary to help you find that motivation and remove any barriers.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
Oftentimes, we don’t realize that our own negative or inaccurate thought patterns can prevent us from coping and healing. Through Cognitive Behavior Therapy, we can address these thought patterns and rewrite the script, allowing you to view certain experiences and circumstances from a new set of lenses.
Through Existential-Humanistic Psychotherapy, we strive to help you recognize your own uniqueness, to ground you, and to bring a greater sense of awareness centered not only on yourself but on the world around you. This approach requires a deep sense of self-searching and meaning where you are allowed to explore which aspects of your life are in alignment with the journey you are on and which are not.

Through Mind Body Bridging/Mindshield we will implement mindfulness and mind-body connectivity to keep you centered, focused, and engaged so you can take on life and its stressors!
