My Approach to Helping
At SageWell Health our philosophy of care is based upon an integrative, depth-oriented approach. By bridging science-backed interventions with an integrative, whole-person approach, our mission is to help all clients feel more connected to their truest selves and in turn, live more fulfilled, passionate, and engaged lives. Starting by building safety and trust in the therapeutic relationship, we then help clients start to better understand and connect with themselves so they can cultivate healing from within. We have specialty training in couples and marriage counseling. In addition, to talk therapy, we also weave in other mind-body approaches such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) in order to promote bottom-up change, rather than surface-level shifts. Our core beliefs about therapy are that it should actually work (it's courageous to reach out for help and you should know that your efforts will result in meaningful change), be personalized to you, and not only decrease your symptoms, but enhance a sense of vitality in your life. Please reach out to learn more about our practice and if working together could be a good fit.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
At SageWell Health, we believe in the power of evidence-based best practices. We take science-backed interventions, as well as current research within the field, and integrate it with a whole-person, holistic approach. Our focus on depth work starts by building safety and trust to begin cultivating healing from within. We pull from Attachment, Psychodynamic, Family Systems, and Somatic theories to help clients create meaningful change.
Clients often ask what a "depth" approach entails. Depth therapy seeks to look thoroughly (i.e., deeply) into a problem through understanding and treating the underlying root causes. Rather than targeting symptoms right away, a depth approach will first help you (or you and your partner or family members) understand factors contributing to the problem. From this nuanced understanding, the underlying issues can be better addressed. This approach is powerful, as it often results in more profound and lasting change than if the symptoms themselves are the initial primary target. A depth approach also involves building a safe and trusting relationship between the client and therapist that can in and of itself contribute to healing, as well as increasing awareness of the way the past affects current thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Once root causes are identified, there are many powerful modalities to treat both the root cause, as well as the associated symptoms, such as EMDR for individuals and PACT, EFT and Gottman techniques for couples.
