I practice as an integrative therapist. Integrative therapy draws from and incorporates different kinds of therapy such as psychodynamic, humanistic and relational therapy. I see real value in the integrative model as I feel that it allows the sessions to adapt and grow around you. It is you, after all, that is the priority of these sessions. Your gender, race, culture, sexuality, class, disability and religion/spirituality all integrate into who you are, and all has importance in the therapy room.
My approach can be boiled down to a central core issue of how we relate: how we relate to ourselves, to others, to our past experiences and to our ever evolving sense of self. I see our therapeutic relationship as a place where you can explore, question and even make changes to what felt like a fixed way of relating.
