Integrative Health

Integrative Health Therapy for Durham Patients

Integrative Psychotherapy adopts a holistic approach towards your health and wellbeing. We look at the entire picture of who you are to understand what brings you to seeking support and what helps you thrive. Additionally, it combines both conventional and complementary approaches together to promote wellness.

What is integrative wellness?

“Integrative” can be defined in many different ways. At Project Yes PLLC, we are examining the relationship between many facets of who you are, such as:

  • Your unique lived experience

  • Physical health

  • Relationships

  • Environments you are in

  • Your relationship to food

  • How you connect with your body and movement

  • Outlets you have for creativity

  • What ignites your spirit

We also consider what may be helpful in your journey, beyond traditional and individual psychotherapy. Often, traditional medical practices and alternative therapies all work towards a common goal, healing in synergistic ways.

Integrative wellness has been around since ancient times and is commonly found in many worldwide traditions, but was largely disregarded in the Western world until recent decades when people started becoming more aware that wellness cannot be separated from all of who we are in this complex, mind-body-spirit organism. Now, top of the line medical centers emphasize the mind-body connection, make use of stress reduction approaches from various wisdom traditions, and have started to pay attention to the impact of adverse experiences on our medical and psychological vulnerabilities.

In addition, research into alternative and natural remedies began to emerge, finally studying what in other cultures has already been long established as effective. At Project Yes, we want to know who you are as a whole person, and to help you see yourself in that way too. We will work together using traditional psychotherapy approaches, and offer resources beyond “talk therapy” that could support your well-being. 

Give that our practice has counselors in Durham, we are well networked in the area with a variety of integrative providers, with resources including nutrition support, functional medicine, Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture, Ayurveda, medical massage, food sensitivity testing, neuropsychological evaluations, and more. We also may suggest adjunct support, such as yoga therapy, interpersonal groups, relationship resources, breathwork, embodiment practices and mindfulness tools. 

Project Yes therapists will help you remember that you are more than your difficulties. Together, we will explore the totality of who you are to better understand your overall functioning, and provide holistic support to brighten the pathways for your future.
