Our Approach

Our sights are set on making mental wellness accessible and as commonplace and necessary as flossing – through a variety of creative means. We understand that mental health is more than just its symptoms, and we focus on the meaning and growth gained from our journey towards wellness.

What makes us different? We offer an eclectic style of treatment that integrates the mind, body, and spirit. Our “special sauce” is a unique blend of creativity, evidence-based modalities, movement, and eastern/western philosophy.

Integrative Counsel values making mental wellness accessible regardless of where you are in your journey. We know the importance of multiple-entry points for care – from relatable and relevant articles, workbooks, and workshops to in-depth courses, retreats, and quality one-to-one counseling, coaching, and business solutions.

We want to meet you where you are! Take a look below, and ask yourself:
Where do you fall on the journey of wellness?

The Status Quo

Things appear fine on the surface, but you might feel like something is missing. You find yourself making the same mistakes and coming to the same crossroads over and over again.

The Whisper

Everything is starting to feel off. Routine has become monotony. Despite all your hard work, you might feel dissatisfied in your relationships with others. You may even feel a deep dissatisfaction with yourself. This is the presage of growth, when you start to wake up to the ways in which you have been holding yourself back.

Denial

You’ve heard the whisper, but your goals may still feel unfounded and not worth pursuing. Reaching out to others may start to feel like an impossible task without any potential positive outcome. This phase of the journey is defined by the excuses we make in order to avoid changing. But no matter how long you deny it, you’re still responsible for becoming who you want to be, and it’s not your destiny to make the same mistakes over and over again.

Finding your guide

It can be tempting to think that you don’t need the help. You might feel embarrassed to want or need help along your way. It’s natural to desire independence, but it’s also natural to need guidance beyond your own ability. Alexander the Great conquered what he believed to be the whole world, but even he needed a teacher like Aristotle to guide him on his path.

Threshold

You are at the most definitive phase of your journey. Preparing to cross the threshold in your journey might make you feel fearful. You may have found a mentor, faced your denial, learned what you wanted, and seen through the facade of self-illusion, but there is even more preparation to do. This is where you will start to recognize the necessary elements for your success and happiness, and use them as your guiding light through the shadows of uncertainty.

Separation

As your attitudes have evolved and grown throughout your journey, you have moved further and further from the person you were when you began. You might feel a sense of mourning for who you’ve had to leave behind. The people who were with us from the very beginning of the journey might not be with us anymore. This is not just a separation between your old world and a new one, this is a separation between who you have been, and who you are going to be.

The Trial

Here, you are starting to truly confront the consequences of your old habits, and your instincts might still be leading you astray despite your better judgment. Only by facing the shadows cast by your prior beliefs can you ever hope to rise to the challenge of this trial. The new beliefs and behaviors that you’ve fostered across the last few stages will be inevitably tested.

Return

When you reach this phase of your journey, you begin to trust yourself and practice your new way of being. You aren’t the person you were when your journey began. You’re still facing your shadows, even at this stage of your journey, but now you have all the tools to approach them constructively. The good news is that your journey doesn’t have to end here, and the bad news is that your journey can’t end here. You were meant to change a lot over the course of your journey, but you were never meant to stop changing.
